With more than 40 years of street fashion and with an estimated fortune of 7,000 million dollars (Forbes), designer Giorgio Armani is known worldwide for men’s clothing. The Italian designer was born in Piacenza on July 11, 1934 and at 83 years old is one of the most commercially successful designers in the history of fashion.
After studying medicine at the University of Milan, he realized that his true vocation was fashion. Thus began to work in The Rinascente (one of the most elegant shops of the continent), in which it was dedicated to decorate the windows. Years later, he began designing with Nino Cerruti. He had only been working for the firm for four years when he decided to open his own brand, Armani, along with his partner and couple Sergio Galeotti (who years later died of AIDS).
The society was captivated with the comfort of his clothes. Lines straight and sober but with a material of an excellent quality. While other designers throw themselves into colors that are more vivid, Giorgio Armani decides to take a more classic line. A sure hit. As for their line of women, the garments are intended to stylize women through a more androgynous style.
In addition to his undoubted talent, Giorgio Armani rose to fame with one of the most influential films of the 1980s: American Gigolo (Paul Schrader, 1980), a film in which the young Richard Gere wore signature clothing and that was a success. That’s how he revolutionized the world of fashion with a men’s suit that was loose, comfortable and with freer lines. It was called power suit and sowed elegance: in the 80’s appearance was everything.
His garments have appeared in over 400 films throughout his career. Other notable titles include The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan, 2008), Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino, 2009) and The Wolf of Wall Street (Martin Scorsese, 2009).
After the big boom in Hollywood, Armani knew to take care of all type of public and soon, his costumes began to be the uniform par excellence, essential in any closet. His designs made and sigh to the masses. For this reason, it has more than 350 stores spread all over the world and also several lines within the firm such as Armani Jeans or Armani Privé, not counting the different lines it has related to the world of cosmetics.
Undoubtedly, Giorgio Armani has reinforced the importance of the Made in Italy label that thanks to him we relate to luxury and good quality. Both men and women, clothes are lovely. For this reason, on our website you can find preloved Armani clothing that Luxury and Vintage Madrid team has selected exclusively for our customers.

In recent years, thrift stores have gained great importance in the market. However, those products that seemingly are inaccessible to most, are more accessible because of luxury thrift stores. Chanel handbags, the Birkin handbag by Hermès, Versace or Dior designer luxury dresses, Gucci’s latest by Tom Ford or luxury vintage clothing are some of the most sought-after items searched for consumers.
Many are those who think that buying luxury products in these types of stores takes away the prestige of whoever buys it. However, we can say that is the opposite. If an item is in perfect condition and I can also get it cheaper, why would not I buy it? Let’s say that buying cheaper second-hand luxury goods is a symbol of intelligence and not of smear.
Only a couple of years ago that online commerce began to be booming and there are still many people who distrust this type of service. It is logical that these are parts that can be obtained much cheaper, but still remain expensive. The ideal thing to take confidence in this type of purchase is to start with luxury accessories, since its cost is lower and it is not so afraid to “lose” that money in the event that the purchase was a scam.
The first thing to look for when buying in a second-hand online store of luxury products is social networks like Pinterest or Instagram: the user profile is real if you have many followers and publications. The second of the things to keep in mind is in the form of payment: the safest for this type of commerce is PayPal. Why? Check it out in this article and answer all your doubts. The third but not least, we must look at user ratings either on their website or on other platforms where they are selling their products such as Ebay.
Now comes the second question: how do I know if the article I’m interested in is authentic? It is one of the biggest fears when buying online. In our case, Luxury and Vintage Madrid has a team of professionals who analyze the product and confirm that it is 100% authentic before taking the photos of the product to put it on sale. The process is thorough, which analyzes the material and composition of the product, logos, engraving, serial numbers, invoices … ultimately, analyze the smallest detail to ensure the quality standard for to be able to sell the product.
When buying on the Internet is also very important to look at the pictures of the product and its description: the more photos in which we can see the details, the better. In addition, in the case of a product description that has a defect, it is important to see what it is, and if we can provide a photograph with that defect, perhaps when we see it does not seem such a big problem for not buying it.
In addition, this new type of web pages not only benefit people who want to purchase a product: also, for those who want to sell it. Normally, there is a “consign” section in which you send your product to the company and they upload it to their website after having passed the authenticity check. The objective? That you sell your product faster. When it comes to trusting this type of service, you should be aware of the type of percentage or commission that the company takes, as it can sometimes be quite high. In our case, if you want to know more about our procedure of consignment, we attach the section of our web page with the specifications to consign.
From Luxury and Vintage Madrid, we offer you the seriousness, the quality and the loyalty so that you trust in us to the 100%. We sell quality and authenticity at the best price.
