The Armani suit has played plenty of different characters over the decades. From its breakout role emboldening the truly self-made man in American Gigolo, to the perfect pastel accoutrement to Don Johnson’s cigarette in Miami Vice, to the sheep’s clothing on Leonardo DiCaprio’s Wolf of Wall Street—an Armani suit plays an elegant co-star, accentuating the protagonist, never overstating.
Partnered with pearl sand beaches and azure waves, Armani knows exactly how to dress. The fashion house’s latest role has the brand taking the lead with its Residences by Armani/Casa in Miami, Florida. The 56-storey oceanfront tower hosts 308 apartments and is slated for completion in 2018. Designed in partnership with Argentinian-born architect César Pelli, Armani’s newest residences will number among other recent locations in Istanbul, Mumbai, and Manila.
Picking up on the Art Deco influence seen throughout Miami, Armani/Casa follows suit with slick updates in muted, neutral tones. Each apartment comes fully equipped with Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio furnishings, as well as lush Armani wallpaper in blues and greens that accentuate the tropical setting. Downstairs, exclusive amenities will include the prerequisite bar as well as a spa, gym, theatre, cigar room, and children’s quarters, all finished in signature Italian style.
Expanding outdoors, Armani has enlisted the vision of Swiss landscape artist Enzo Enea to design an 11,000-square-foot garden that extends all the way to 300 feet of private beach—which includes 28 secluded cabanas. It’s luxury suited for Hollywood royalty.
