Giorgio Armani: The new Frames Of Life campaign, Timeless Portraits, depict modern individuals
Frames of Life, the eyewear campaign launched in 2010, makes its return. The setting this time is a café in a big city square, with a constant flow of people coming and going: countless stories, all different and each one unique, intertwining to create a completely new narrative.
The protagonists of these‘frames of life’ are: Luc, a writer whose first work has just been published; Carlos, a young barman with a passion for cinema; Nina, a talented cellist seeking her first gig; Lucille and Adrian, two successful young architects. This creates a medley of different stories, hopes, and emotions, tied together by a common element: their Frames of Life eyewear. Each snapshot captures a real life moment in the life of the character, from which their personality and story unfold.
The eyewear adds a subtle touch of style to the characters in a way that does not overpower, but compliments their personality. The frames represent the timeless design drawing on the iconic shapes of Giorgio Armani’s revisiting in a contemporary fashion with new materials and colors, artisanal details and innovative technological features.
The new Frames of Life campaign will live in print and on www.framesoflife.com, but also on social media through a series of short video clips that reveal and explore each character as the stories unfold over time.
