Giorgio Armani & Il Divo collaborate for 'The Promise'

Dec '08
Giorgio Armani will once again be the designer of choice for the acclaimed operatic pop vocal quartet “Il Divo” on their 2009 world tour “ An evening with Il Divo “. The tour, starting on February 21st in Manchester, UK, will celebrate the launch of their new album, “The promise”. The quartet has also chosen to wear Giorgio Armani clothes during the promotional tour that is currently travelling across most important cities of the world.

The collaboration with Mr. Armani dates back to the group's formation in 2003 and again in 2006 for their world tour. The quartet also performed at the “ One night only at Budokan “, during the celebration of opening of the Armani / Ginza Tower in Tokyo in November 2007.

The tour wardrobe reflects the different sections of the show through an interplay of shapes and fabrics, all drawn from the Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani and Armani Collezioni Spring/Summer 2009 collections.

The looks will vary from lighter shades of blue and grey single breasted jackets to a dark and austere look, accented with sparkling details on shirts, collars, pocket handkerchiefs and neck ties, to create a dramatic stage effect. The singers have also chosen to wear a selection of Giorgio Armani classic tuxedos.

Giorgio Armani said: “Il Divo has such a powerful and mesmerizing stage presence which has been a great inspiration to me. I remember the first time I saw them performing live: I was impressed by their elegance and their fascinating way to communicate emotions through their music “.

Il Divo was formed in late 2003 under the aegis of the iconic “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell, who, after conducting a two-year international talent search, discovered David Miller (USA - tenor), Sebastien Izambard (France – vox populi), Urs Buhler (Switzerland – tenor) and Carlos Marin (Spain – baritone), a virtuosic vocal quartet who combine musical mastery with sex appeal.

Giorgio Armani's collaborations with artists in the music industry include: Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Sting, Andrea Bocelli, Usher, Beyonce, The Fugees, Wyclef, The Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Fergie, Laura Pausini, John Legend, Razorlight, Craig David, Alicia Keys, Solange Knowles.
