Last week, the Giorgio Armani Neve Autumn/Winter 22/23 Collection was presented in St. Moritz, the luxury ski town in the Eastern Alps' Engadin valley. The show was hosted in front of the Olympia Stadium, just minutes from the city, where the 1928 and '48 Winter Olympic Games took place. The stadium’s design—classic wooden bleacher seating, mirrored pillars, and brass details—offered a well-matched setting for Armani, given the blend of luxurious textures at play.

With a focus on outerwear, Giorgio Armani Neve bridges Armani’s elegant heritage with a modern approach to the classic ski-lodge aesthetic. Neve, which launched in the '90s, is characterized by a reference to the minimalist design that dominated that decade; this collection celebrates refined materials, a clean palette, and simple, structured details.

The collection featured several of-the-moment trends, such as fur, statement belting, suede accessories, and leg warmers.

The events held in correspondence with the Giorgio Armani Neve collection were designed in collaboration with the Swiss Tourist Board, working in line with the ISO 20121 Sustainable Events Standard to minimize The Armani Group’s environmental footprint. At all events, Armani worked to avoid single-use plastics and food waste, and they will be offsetting all event-related emissions through a variety of nature-based solutions. Additionally, The Armani Group has made a donation to “MortAlive,” a Swiss organization that works toward the long-term protection of glaciers worldwide.
