Brand America( Emporio Armani )
And for the first time, Emporio Armani, the lower-priced line from Giorgio Armani's Milan-based fashion empire, is making jeans in the United States.
The company recently announced that four new styles (two for men and two for women) for spring/summer 2010 are being made in downtown Los Angeles.
Touted as "the refinement of the Armani brand with an original interpretation of the authentic vintage American look," they bear a distinct stars-and-stripes vibe that's reflected in special hangtags, brushed white enamel rivets and red, white and blue leather labels.
