A private dinner with the signature of the three-star chef Cerea, a laser mapping show and the fashion show of the men’s and women’s collection Spring/Summer 2023: fashion, entertainment, live music, for 650 guests, including shipowners, shareholders and friends. A magnificent event held at the headquarters of the Italian Sea Group and completely transformed by the show setup to unveil a new jewel of the seas: the megayacht Admiral 72 by Giorgio Armani.
This is the first of the two boats to be fully designer-designed in both exterior lines and interior. The characteristic features of the style are immediately recognizable: minimalism, essentiality, refined and never intrusive elegance.
The exterior has a clear architectural character: large geometric and clear volumes in dialogue with curved and soft shapes to achieve a double effect of stability and dynamism. Large floor-to-ceiling windows erase the boundary between indoor and outdoor thanks to a sliding panel system reminiscent of the Japanese houses that were close to the designer’s heart and a constant source of inspiration. The interiors are by Armani/Casa, a refined discretion with delicate tones, fine materials and great attention to detail in workmanship and craftsmanship.
The most interesting aspect of the project is the ability to customize every single detail. Despite the complexity of the technical and construction challenge, we are faced with expanding the aesthetics of the tailored garment. Giorgio Armani explains it without emphasis: “I thought of creating personalized environments like tailored clothing, with the same care in the choice of materials and workmanship.” The sea and design are two great passions and thanks to this new collaboration I can mine Expand the idea of furniture to the nautical world. As in fashion, aesthetics and function must harmonize perfectly. This is the only way harmony can arise.”
