Giorgio Armani, fashion designer (July 11, 1934–present)

“I have noticed, of course, as I see many of my fashion tropes resurge on the wider fashion scenario. My idea of fluid suiting and soft tailoring is gaining a new grip exactly because of the softness, which ultimately is the idea of clothing that molds comfortably to the person, without screaming for attention, allowing elegance and ease at once. Comfort is the keyword, and what everyone looks for after the easy dressing of working from home.” —Giorgio Armani
