Giorgio Armani’s “Eccentrico” exhibit opened yesterday, on June 6, bringing Armani archives to light for fashion fanatics in Rome.

The exhibit, at the Palazzo della Civilta Italiana in Rome, “explores the eccentric side of the Armani archives,” reports Elle magazine.

The exhibit includes clothing and accessories from the Giorgio Armani and Armani Privé collections dating back to 1985. The thick embroidery and sharp, structured jackets chart the evolution of Armani’s sensibility. Accessories include necklaces, buckles, bags, broaches, and a series of fabric necklaces.

The exhibition features 62 outfits and around 300 accessories and exclusive perfumes, Vogue Australia reports. After leaving Rome on June 9, the exhibit will tour Milan, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

“Eccentrico is an installation of exceptional clothes and unique accessories, a journey through the imagination and a study of the capacity for transformation, playing with shapes and materials to explore cultural connections and artistic symbols,” Giorgio Armani writes on the Armani website.

“It is this aspect – of the unusual – that I wished to highlight, because it represents an exuberant form of creativity that extends the concept of minimalism and rigour linked with my fashion design.

“And as simplicity of line does not equal simplicity of thought, I have underscored the wealth and freedom of inspiration that form the foundation of my work and that tell a long and unexpected story. My own story, beyond the clichés.”

To celebrate the exhibit, the Palazzo della Civilta Italiana threw a special One Night Only Roma event, in which Giorgio Armani staged a fashion show in front of over 700 guests.
