Giorgio Armani for The Wolf of Wall Street
One well dressed wolf
Academy Award winning director Martin Scorsese's new and much-anticipated film, The Wolf of Wall Street details the life of Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. For the production, Giorgio Armani worked with acclaimed costume designer Sandy Powell to create the iconic 'city boy' style of circa 1993.
"The era of power dressing on Wall Street projected tremendous amounts of resolute strength." Said Mr Armani himself, "I remember the period well, when my deconstructed suiting emerged as an emblem of success. The complex character of Jordan Belfort required a look with the same unmatched nerve and sense of self. It was an honour to collaborate with the revered Sandy Powell and again with my long-time friends, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio. As a devotee of film, it was a privilege to be in the company of geniuses of cinema like Marty and Leo."
Giorgio Armani will be present at the Paris premiere of the film this week, as he will later in the month at the world premiere in New York on December 17.
Director Martin Scorsese responded, "Giorgio Armani revolutionised male fashion design – he gave us a new idea of elegance that was, and still is, a perfect fit with the times."
Giorgio Armani has been on the forefront of creating wardrobe looks for major motion pictures since he pioneered the movement by dressing Richard Gere in American Gigolo in 1980. Since then, hundreds of films have incorporated designs by Giorgio Armani, including The Dark Knight Rises and many more.
The Wolf of Wall Street opens December 25th in the United States and globally throughout December and January.
