The world-renowned designer Giorgio Armani, announced today his collaboration with Ricky Martin for his anticipated world tour "Music + Soul + Sex," which will begin next March 25 at the José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Giorgio Armani, under his Emporio Armani brand, has designed the costumes for Ricky Martin, his band members, dancers and showgirls.
"Ricky embodies the modern man of today and is an extraordinary artist. Our friendship spans more than a decade. I am delighted to be working with him again in this new chapter of his
legendary career. Ricky attended my Emporio Armani fashion show in Milan last summer and we were very excited about the idea of collaborating again, "said the designer.
Señor Armani previously designed the costumes for the successful tours "Vuelve" and "Livin 'La Vida Loca," in 1998 and 1999 respectively.
This tour features four different looks: Punk - incorporating leather jackets, Cabaret / Jazz - inspired by the 20s, Mediterranean Style - combining blue and white striped shirts with elegant costumes inspired by European masked balls. The show concludes with an Afro-Brazilian theme, which features a strong presence of white clothing and beachwear.
"I have always liked Giorgio Armani's designs and have worn his suits countless times throughout my career, on and off stage," said Ricky Martin. "The look he has created for my new tour is unique and very creative. I am extremely honored and excited to be able to work with him again. He will help bring Music + Soul + Sex to life."
