“I’m still somewhat in awe and inspired by the level of perfection that’s involved,” Tim Quinn acknowledged, regarding the work involved at a real-life Armani show. “It’s a different sense backstage. It’s not a frenetic, mixed up, crazy world. It’s very structured and tailored, yet fun, but there’s also almost a reverence about it. At this point, Armani is truly an icon.” Hard to disagree with that. But what’s exciting is seeing that kind of structured, intimate, but exciting atmosphere come to life within our New York flagship’s doors.

But when one thinks of beauty, one hardly thinks just cheekbones, or just the lips, but fall 2014 is without question the season of the eye. That’s where the Eye & Brow Maestro, created by Giorgio Armani beauty’s creative director, Linda Cantello, comes into play. “When you go to the hair salon,” explains Tim, “some people are very uncomfortable staring at the mirror the whole time. It allows the hair artist to actually understand the shape and the flow. The same idea works with makeup, especially with the eyes. When you can take a step back and look and see, specially with these brows that have become such a big focus after the arrival of Cara Delevingne, it could very easily go awry. Taking that moment to take a look from a few feet away, or stepping back to check the balance, is very important.”

“In the past, for me, it’s mostly been complexion, complexion, complexion. But this season it’s about playing up the eyes. It’s the one moment when women take it up a notch with “the smoky eye” or “the cat eye”, or what have you. At holidays, if you’ve been at work all day, playing up the eye is the easiest way to seduce the evening.”
