Armani's stores impacted by the coronavirus. The Italian company has decided to close its production centers in Lombardy, Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Trentino and Piedmont for a week.


The company will also close its headquarters located in Milan, one of the capitals of the industry. For now, workers will not attend their jobs for seven days as a precautionary measure.  


The Government of Italy has taken precautions in the north of the country due to fear of the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. Schools and universities of Piedmont and Emilia Romagna have been closed. La Scala in Milan has also canceled its performances, as well as events with a forecast of crowds such as the Carnival of Venice or football matches.


Milan fashion week has also been affected by the coronavirus. Armani presented his collection in fashion week in a closed-door fashion show, without journalists or buyers. The company recorded the presentation and shared it on its website and social networks.


On the other hand, Laura Biagiotti has also followed the Armani line, celebrating its parade behind closed doors. Michael Kors, meanwhile, canceled its launch of the capsule collection with the 007 James Bond franchise. Tod’s has decided to restrict access to workplaces and planned trips on these dates.


Mido, the eyewear show in Milan, has also postponed the celebration of its next edition. The organizers have assured that it may end up being celebrated between the end of May and the beginning of June. The planned dates for the event were from February 29 to March 2.
