MILAN — Giorgio Armani’s collaboration with Hollywood is one of the most long-standing and fruitful in movie history since the designer’s first fashion smorgasbord for Richard Gere in “American Gigolo” in 1980. Now, for the first time, Armani is dressing a movie set — with a screen credit to boot.

Armani Casa designs will be featured in the tech-thriller flick “Paranoia,” directed by Robert Luketic and starring Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth, Gary Oldman and Amber Heard, to hit theaters in the U.S. on Aug. 8.

Armani worked with production designer David Brisbin to incorporate Armani Casa pieces, from sofas and lamps to tables and chairs, into key moments of the film, while also collaborating with costume designer Luca Mosca to create a two-button notch-lapel suit in midnight blue, as well as a two-button notch-lapel blazer in cement gray for the character played by Harrison Ford, Jock Goddard.

“Collaborating with David Brisbin on his vision for this movie provided me with the opportunity to showcase Armani Casa on film in a way that is absolutely believable and appropriate to the story,” said Armani. “Working with Luca Mosca and my longtime friend Harrison Ford to create a wardrobe for a villain was also fun."
