Armani Gets the 'Shaft'

11/12/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

It's a busy time of year for Giorgio Armani, whose autumn-winter 2000/2001 men's collection closed Milan's fashion week on Wednesday. With awards season underway, expect to see Hollywood leading men dressed in his classic tuxes and women wearing his gowns and separates. Armani, who was introduced to America in 1980's "American Gigolo," is also about to return to the big screen. He designed Samuel L. Jackson's wardrobe for the new movie version of "Shaft." The remake of the '70s exploitation hit, directed by John Singleton, is set for release this summer.

With additional reporting by Donna Freydkin.
