Scuderia Ferrari have announced that Giorgio Armani will be one of their main partners for their 2021 Formula One campaign.
A multi-year partnership has been agreed between the Italian companies, which will provide Ferrari all clothing by Giorgio Armani, for activities happening off the track.
Navy blue garments and accessories will be made for this year’s Ferrari Formula One driver line-up – Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz – and for the Scuderia management.
Armani will also supply travelwear for all team members on board to compete in the FIA Formula One Championship during the 2021 season.
Ferrari had previously signed an ongoing agreement with Armani back in 2019. Armani produces garments and accessories for Ferrari’s luxury car brand merchandise stores.
On the partnership, Giorgio Armani said: “Today, more than ever, we need to find a way to promote Italian excellence in a dialogue between different areas and disciplines. Ferrari is recognised around the world as a symbol of Italy and I am proud of this collaboration. I have come up with an elegant wardrobe for the drivers, which is suitable for their travels in the hope that we can all be on the move again soon and that, all together, we are ready for our country’s recovery.”
Ferrari President John Elkann added: “Armani is synonymous with Italian style and elegance: we share the same pride in representing our country around the world. As from today, Scuderia Ferrari and Giorgio Armani join forces to be strong together and not just on the race track.”
Last year, Armani also worked with Monegasque racing driver Charles Leclerc, who will be representing Ferrari for the third season in Formula One.
Leclerc was made the face of Armani’s Made-To-Measure line for the 2020 spring/summer collection.
