Giorgio Armani and 20th Century Fox are collaborating on an exciting range of activities on behalf of the studio’s upcoming thriller “The Counselor.” The partnership ranges from special events to digital and retail components, the most notable involvement being the Emporio Armani film wardrobe.
Giorgio Armani has been instrumental in collaborating with esteemed costume designer Janty Yates and celebrated director Sir Ridley Scott to create the style and wardrobe for several lead characters in the movie featuring his Emporio Armani collection. The highly anticipated drama (opening in the US on October 25 and throughout November internationally) stars Michael Fassbender as ‘The Counselor’ and Penelope Cruz, playing his fiancè, Laura.The film’s illustrious cast also co-stars Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz and Javier Bardem. Giorgio Armani has been on the forefront of creating wardrobes 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,” “The Dark Knight,” “The Untouchables,” “Gattaca,” “Stealing Beauty,” “Shaft,” “The Tuxedo,” “De-Lovely,” “Ocean’s Thirteen,” “Fair Game,” “The Social Network,” and “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.”
Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men) have joined forces in the motion picture thriller THE COUNSELOR, starring Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Javier Bardem, and Brad Pitt. McCarthy, making his screenwriting debut and Scott interweave the author’s characteristic wit and dark humor with a nightmarish scenario, in which a respected lawyer’s one-time dalliance with an illegal business deal spirals out of control.
