Armani opens a new flagship store today in Milan.Â According to DNR, the boutique is the largest Giorgio Armani store in the world. Located near the historical 16-century Palazzo Taverna, the store sits on a 21,600 square feet lot and hasÂ three floors.
â€œIt had become a must for us to be on this street, with a store that is functional and where the product stands out,â€ said the designer. Armani himself designed the new concept store, elements of which may be extended to the new Madison Avenue megastore planned for New York. â€œStores need to be rationalâ€”they must work,â€ he added. â€œSure, there are stores that make the cover of architectural magazines, but then must be changed to be more operative.â€Â
