The collection is infused with ReebokвЂ™s sporting DNA and its unique fitness and training heritage, within the contemporary vision of one of the worldвЂ™s leading fashion designers.
Distribution will be limited to Emporio Armani boutiques, select Reebok concept stores and preferred retailers worldwide, starting from July 2010.
"Today sportswear and active wear have become really important parts of our wardrobes. I wanted to offer my customers the possibility of wearing sports clothes that were stylish and comfortable. My new alliance with Reebok is a natural consequence of this philosophy. As with all my collaborations, I am delighted to be working with experts in their field," said Giorgio Armani.
вЂњThis collaboration offers a new perspective for the design-minded, fashion conscious, active consumer. The global style credentials of the Emporio Armani EA7 brand, combined with ReebokвЂ™s fitness and training heritage, and focus going forward, fit together perfectly to provide a compelling new offering in the global sports-style marketplace,вЂќ said Uli Becker, President, Reebok International.
