Front Row at Emporio Armani

Apart from actor Kellan Lutz, who has been attending a number of shows in Milan this season, guests at the show hailed from the Italian music world.

IT’S A RAP: Apart from actor Kellan Lutz, who has been attending a number of shows in Milan this season, guests at Emporio Armani hailed from the Italian music world. Taking in the show were rap group Club Dogo, rapper J-Ax, and Marco Mengoni, who won the third edition of Italian talent search “X Factor.”

Wearing his staple skullcap, J-Ax, whose real name is Alessandro Aleotti, said his relationship with Giorgio Armani goes back 15 years. “There’s mutual respect, and our jobs are artistic expressions,” he said. The designer has been to two of his concerts, Aleotti related, describing his music as “cross-over, with roots in rap and pop influences.”
