Sì Passione Éclat to be launched in 2022

Hi, everyone!

A new variant of Sì perfume — Sì Passione Éclat is planned to be released this year. Also, the screenplay for Don’t Look Up is now online.

Eau de parfum Sì Passione Éclat de Parfum by Giorgio Armani – a bright new interpretation of the legendary Sì flavor. It personifies bold and modern femininity, reminds of the power of passion that illuminates life, filling it with meaning. This luminous rose-floral composition with a sensual heart of roses inspires women to reveal their strengths, to conquer the world with confidence and grace.

Sì Passione Éclat de Parfum opens with a sparkling citrus note of bergamot and a bright accord of black currant, demonstrating the lightness and new green freshness of the fruity notes characteristic of Sì aromas. At the heart of the composition is an attractive feminine duet of roses: gentle pastel-powdery centifolia and sweet, enveloping damascene. The base is composed of white musk, which gives the fragrance a clean and soft sensuality, while vanilla extract gives it a warm, captivating sound. The sillage is light, fresh and at the same time delicate and enveloping.

The iconic Si bottle, with a luminous ruby ??lacquer finish, reflects the radiant character of the fragrance, sparkling like a jewel.

The perfume is currently showing on the Russian version of Armani Beauty website.

Cate Blanchett at The Fashion Awards 2019

Hi blanchetters!

Last Monday, actress Cate Blanchett was at The British Fashion Awards 2019 in London. She and Julia Roberts, among other famous guests like Tom Cruise, Naomi Campbell, attended the event where Giorgio Armani was honored with the Outstanding Achievement Award.

Looking stunning in an Armani Privé dress from the Fall 2019 Collection, Cate, who is the first global beauty ambassador for the Italian brand, took the stage to celebrate the relationship with the 85-year-old designer alongside Roberts.

The award is a recognition of Mr. Armani 45 remarkable years in fashion, with many iconic tailored suits and gowns for Hollywood.

Cate has a long partnership with Mr. Armani, in fact, according to some interviews, her first paycheck went to a suit she still has! Over the years Cate has been seen in many fashion pieces from the designer, they also collaborated in film, during the Sydney Theatre Company years, and, since 2013, Cate became the face of the successful fragrance Sì.

Mr. Armani also designed the gown Cate was wearing when she became a two-time Oscar winner in 2014.

Cate Blanchett covers Mujer Hoy Spain + Ellen von Unwerth’s VON magazine

Hey Blanchetters!

Two more covers to be added to our 2019 collection! Cate Blanchett is featured in two new magazines. First, we have the latest issue of Mujer Hoy in which there is a promotional interview for Sì Fiori and Armani Beauty. Then the long waited photoshoot by Ellen von Unwerth made last year during Cannes Film Festival that will be featured on the n°2-2 of Ellen von Unwerth’s VON magazine, the cinema issue, available in May. Take a look!

Cate Blanchett: “Este es un momento decisivo y fascinante para todas”

Las mujeres no pueden dejar de mirarla. Lo tenemos comprobado. El famoso vídeo viral en el que la actriz Kathryn Hahn observa embelesada a Rachel Weisz se queda corto ante el efecto Cate Blanchett. La primera vez que observamos el fenómeno en Mujerhoy fue hace casi una década. A las puertas de una fiesta de gala en Ginebra, Cate conversaba con unos amigos, magnífica y etérea. Todas las mujeres que pasaban a su lado la recorrían de arriba abajo con la mirada. No eran celos, era admiración en estado puro. Los hombres, sin embargo, no se sentían impelidos a mirar.

Las pruebas irrefutables nos las ofreció la prensa internacional en Londres hace apenas unas semanas. Fue en la cena de presentación oficial de Sì Fiori, el nuevo perfume de Giorgio Armani del que, por supuesto, es musa. A los postres, la actriz se sentó unos minutos en cada una de las mesas para charlar con los invitados, una mayoría abrumadora de mujeres. A su alrededor se formaba un corro de rostros absortos, miradas de fascinación, algunas bocas abiertas y gestos de asentimiento absoluto. “Todavía tengo dos horas de coche hasta mi casa en el campo. Estoy encantada con mi jardín, está inspirado en el trabajo de Darwin”, era el tipo de cosas mundanas que relataba Cate. Y la audiencia asentía entregada, como si le escucharan recitar Shakespeare solo para ellas.

Cálida y cercana
Nadie es inmune al hechizo de Blanchett. En las distancias cortas es imposible no dejarte llevar por ese timbre cadencioso, por esa presencia imponente y serena. De sus respuestas educadas se puede inferir que su familia está por encima de todo; que su concepto de la belleza va más allá de aplicarse cremas; que el cuidado del interior es lo que se muestra en el exterior (un mantra que lleva a rajatabla); que, como a los hobbits de la Comarca, un paseo por los alrededores de su casa en la compañía adecuada es una experiencia tan plena como cualquier viaje a un destino lejano. “Es mi idea de un día perfecto: salir al campo con los niños y los perros, y que la jornada termine de una forma inesperada y sorprendente que no habrías imaginado al despertar”, asegura. La normalidad hecha perfección rural.

Cate y su marido, el dramaturgo Andrew Upton, se trasladaron a vivir a la campiña inglesa de Sussex hace un par de años. Con ellos vinieron sus tres hijos adolescentes (Dashiell, 17; Roman, 15; e Ignatius, 11) y su hija adoptada de cuatro años, Edith. Un cambio de registro tras casi una década asentados en Sidney que le ha permitido volver al West End de Londres con obras como When we have sufficiently tortured each other, de Martin Crimp. Un contrapunto crudo y transgresor al extensísimo repertorio de una actriz que, como le dijo una vez su hermana Genevieve, se funde con cada personaje hasta que ella misma desaparece completamente de la escena. Y solo quedan reinas legendarias, elfas mitológicas, diosas escandinavas, amas de casa en crisis moral, sexual y social, damas de alta sociedad venidas a menos…

Mujeres al poder
Ella, que las ha interpretado a todas (y se ha hecho con dos premios Óscar por el camino), entiende que las mujeres están ahora en una encrucijada. “Es un momento decisivo y potencialmente fascinante para todas. Estamos en el proceso de convertirnos en algo. Pero no solo nosotras, creo que tenemos que llevar a los hombres a nuestro lado. Lo realmente apasionante de este preciso momento de la historia es que se ha escuchado a las mujeres. Pero no como individuos concretos, sino como grupo. Lo que estamos aceptando es que somos seres humanos increíbles”. Lo dice con la sabiduría de los 50 años que cumple el 14 de mayo.

Justo ahora, Cate se convierte en la nueva imagen global de Giorgio Armani Beauty. Eso significa que, además de encarnar a la heroína optimista, elegante y todopoderosa de la familia de fragancias Sì, también va a ser embajadora del maquillaje y del tratamiento de la firma que pilota el creador italiano. “El último de los grandes de la moda, ahora que hemos perdido a Karl Lagerfeld”, apunta

Sabe que el cine del que es estrella indiscutible ha ayudado al genio a definir un nuevo tipo de feminidad. “Su estética me influyó mucho antes de conocerlo”. Lo dice porque el diseñador fue la piedra angular de su armario con un traje de chaqueta gris que se compró con su primer sueldo cienematográfico. Todavía lo conserva. “Trabajar con el señor Armani ha sido uno de los grandes privilegios de mi vida”, afirma. “Lo que adoro de cómo ve el mundo es que no pierde jamás la curiosidad. No es una presencia creativa estática”, añade.

En la moda y también en los aromas: “A través del perfume que llevas estás invitando a los demás a descubrir tu particular mundo emocional. Es algo muy privado”, postula. Y esas sensaciones la devuelven a la infancia. “De niña me escondía en el armario de mi madre para pensar a oscuras. Su ropa emanaba esa fragancia tan suya. Era peculiar y muy glamourosa. Porque, por supuesto, cuando somos niñas, nuestras madres son siempre las mujeres más elegantes de nuestra existencia”. Una distinción que siempre ha marcado con unos labios rojos. Hasta ahora. “Es curioso, porque solía ser mi esencial de todos los días. Es un tono que claramente te sitúa en el mundo y que dice: “Aquí estoy yo”. Pero ahora apenas lo uso. Quizá en una alfombra roja. Pero soy mucho más de nudes rosas”, concluye.

New interviews and magazine articles featuring Cate Blanchett

Hello Blanchetters!!

A couple of promotional interviews with Cate Blanchett on Sì Fiori, the new version of perfume Sì by Giorgio Armani, and new articles have been added to the gallery. Enjoy the reading!

Cate Blanchett : “On peut se tromper, mal faire les choses et les réparer”

Actrice phénoménale, féministe engagée … A peine sortie d’une pièce de théâtre sulfureuse à Londres jouée à guichets fermés, l’égérie du parfum Sì de Giorgio Armani nous parle risques, aventures et éducation.

Identité – “La pièce que je viens de jouer à Londres, When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other , évoquait les jeux de rôles, le genre, l’identité, l’idée de consentement et de pouvoir, des thèmes qui m’interpellent ces derniers temps. Katie Mitchell, qui l’a mise en scène et avec qui je rêvais de travailler depuis longtemps, s’attache à présenter des points de vue féminins dans des domaines où ceux des hommes prévalent traditionnellement. C’était physique et passionnant.”

Égalité – “J’élève ma fille exactement comme mes trois fils. Je leur apprends qu’il ne faut jamais identifier quelqu’un à son genre, que tout commence par le respect de soi et des autres. Cette génération ne se définit plus selon la perception des autres. Dans l’éducation, on dit très tôt aux enfants qui ils sont et ce qu’ils vont être, et cela peut les empêcher de s’épanouir librement. L’un de mes fils adorait les jeux traditionnels de filles, je ne l’ai pas empêché.”

Féminité – “J’ai aimé que le film publicitaire du nouveau parfum Sì Fiori de Giorgio Armani soit réalisé par une femme (Fleur Fortuné, ndlr). Il véhicule des valeurs fortes à mes yeux qui redéfinissent la féminité : la confiance en soi, la soif d’aventure, la prise de risques et le fait de ne pas avoir peur de l’échec.”

Matriarcat – “Mon père est mort quand j’étais jeune. J’ai donc été élevée par ma mère et ma grand-mère, dans une maison pleine de femmes fortes. J’ai vu ma mère reprendre le boulot, cela m’a donné un grand sens des responsabilités personnelles et du travail. On peut se tromper, mal faire les choses et les réparer. C’est ce qui m’a permis de me construire en tant que femme.”

Langage – “Les mots qui ont été associés à celui d'”actrice” depuis une dizaine d’années sont ceux de “célébrité”, “visage” ou “figure de proue”, qui ne sont que des descriptions superficielles. Ils ont depuis été remplacés par “militante” ou “activiste”, et c’est bien plus intéressant. En revanche, les rôles sont distincts. Je ne vois pas mon rôle d’actrice comme politique, plutôt comme provocateur. Les gens oublient que vous êtes aussi un être humain. (Rires.) Un parent, un partenaire, un citoyen, et c’est avec ces nombreuses casquettes que l’on s’engage sur d’autres questions.”

New Interview | On Beauty: Cate Blanchett

Hello everyone!

Let’s start the week with this new interview for British Vogue, a couple of photos added to our gallery!
Enjoy!

Cate Blanchett has long been a female force to be reckoned with. Having starred in several big-hit movies – such as the Lord of the Rings franchise, Blue Jasmine and The Aviator – she’s not only a great talent, but her beauty and style musings are certainly notable, too. To mark the launch of Armani Si Fiori fragrance – she’s been the face of the beauty brand since 2014 – Blanchett talks to Vogue about fashion, feminism and fragrance.

On fragrance
I was given my first fragrance while I was at drama school, my friend gave me a Clinique perfume that she didn’t like. I had absolutely no money. But I think probably even earlier than that I wore perfume. I must have smelled like lavender or violets because that’s what my grandmother smelled of. For me, growing up with my mother and grandmother, and remembering their scents, I felt like one day I’m going to be allowed through the portal into womanhood and I, too, will wear a fragrance.

On hair colour
I changed from blonde to brunette [and then back to blonde] for a play [When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other]. I was on stage at The National. I think I looked like my mother and my sister. It felt like some kind of throwback. I just felt like it was right for the character and it was right for the look of the play. So, I did it for work. I could’ve worn a wig, but I don’t like wearing a wig on stage. So, I did it for work.

On ageing
I don’t think about ageing at all until someone brings it up. [When] I think of some of the most inspiring faces, it’s Louise Bourgeois and Georgia O’Keeffe. I’m looking into the spirit of the woman and that’s what I love. Like Mr Armani, who’s really wanted to capture the spirit of being alive as a woman [in his work]. You know, it can be sensual, but it can also be full of power, it can be fragile, but it can be wicked. It’s a whole lot of dualities.

On skincare
It depends on the season. I always use good quality products and products that have a natural base [to them]. What I’ve been using recently (because of the weather) is Giorgio Armani Crema Nera. I use a cream moisturiser and a recovery oil every day to give my skin an extra barrier from the weather. But even on days like this [winter weather] I put on something with an SPF, too. I think it’s just a process I’ve inherited from growing up.

I’ve recently realised the power of exfoliation, so I use an exfoliant every day. If I’m not going to go out, I might put on a face mask. I occasionally have an oxygen facial – they’re great. Being on stage you’re constantly taking make-up on and off, it does take its toll on my skin.

On make-up
At night I’m usually face-planted onto a surface so I don’t have a lot of make-up on. During the day, I’ll wear mascara and I love the Rouge d’Armani matt lipstick. It’s really smooth and it doesn’t dry out your lips.

On fashion
I love fashion. I see it all as costume. That’s where it springs from [for me], an interest in character and costume – but also when you get to work with great designers or people who are so good at tailoring or interested in forward-looking ideas. If you look at people like Roksanda Ilincic and her incredible collection where she smashes those extraordinary colours and patterns together, it is really inspiring. Recently I was unpacking stuff and I found an Armani suit that I’ve had since 1997. You hold onto these things; you don’t necessarily need to have the latest and the new. So, if you have something that’s beautifully made, you keep it and you re-wear it. Fashion always looks backwards to look forward, so why can’t we just recycle and re-wear?

On reading
I have started an astonishing read by a journalist called Behrouz Boochani, called A Letter From Manus Island, about an offshore detention centre for Australia. The book is a series of texts that he smuggled out on his mobile phone and it is absolutely heartbreaking and eye-opening.

Having not read a lot of her previous work, I read a lot of Rachel Cusk’s writings last year. And I read an astonishing book by Maggie Nelson called The Argonauts, she’s part memoirist, part theoretician, part poet, part prose writer, she defies description. She wrote the book while she was pregnant, and [at the time] her partner was transitioning from female to male. She describes that whole journey. It’s an astonishing read.

On feminism
I think there are now more women in the writer’s room. There are more women at the centre of narratives being optioned and there are more platforms on which to release stories. There are certain stories, from the Nineties, about really interesting female lives but they were basically used to tell the same story about a woman. A woman in a man’s world. Whereas I feel now that the complexity and interest of these characters are being placed in very interesting backdrops and the stories that are being told about them are more sophisticated and complex. It excites me, both as an actor but also as an audience member. You don’t have to be in them to consume them.
