Giorgio Armani has been commissioned to design Chelsea football team’s new suits.
The fashion legend was asked to create the official suits for the premiership team ready for the start of the new season.
The team and management have been kitted out with a lightweight gabardine suit, a classic three button cashmere coat and a single breasted knee length nylon raincoat-all in a toned down navy version of the club’s blue colours.
“It is an honour to have collaborated on a new look for the Directors’ Suite at what is certainly one of England‘s most historic football grounds,” Armani said. “José has been a long-time enthusiast for my designs and was personally involved in reviewing all of the sketches and fabrics.”
The designer will also decorate an area of their home ground Stamford Bridge through Armani’s Casa Interior Design Service who also created the club’s Armani Lounge director’s suite.
