Giorgio Armani finds out how to be Immortal with Second Life – itsReal

MILAN (Reuters) – Fashion designer Giorgio Armani has opened up shop in virtual world Second Life, with a store modeled on his flagship location in Milan, his company said in a statement on Wednesday.

The silver-haired Armani will send an avatar of himself to the celebrate the opening of the store.

“Finally, I can really be in two places at once,” the ever-busy stylist who launched a mobile phone on Monday, said in the statement.

Second Life residents will be able to buy items virtually with Linden Dollars — the currency of the virtual world — or they can connect directly from there to his recently-launched online store at www.emporioarmani.com for non-virtual vestments.

Armani, known worldwide for his elegant fashions for women, has already diversified into a range of other sectors, including home furnishings and hotels.

He announced on Sunday a joint venture with Samsung Electronics for a sleek, black mobile phone and eventually other home electronics, including a liquid crystal display television designed with the South Korean firm.

JCPenney opens in Singapore…but only ONLINE – itsReal

That’s right, courtesy of the two directors directors, Kristoff Tan and David Hia who have retail experiences in Singapore and S.E.A.(Southeast Asia), JCPenney has arrived.

Not much makes me sit up and take notice, however the ad calmly displayed on the front page 0f the TODAY newspaper announcing JCPenny was open, did just that ! How quietly they made this happen, with a BIG brand from America is astonishing… So, JCPenny is here minus the Bricks & Mortar, sorry commercial property market consultants, lets observe and wish them well, Singapore’s hi-tech landscape should sustain the ventures mission.

To provide a destination, lifestyle quality experience to our community and to bring online shopping in Singapore to a new level.
