Page added: “My role for Armani Code is an absolute privilege. It allows me to embody the effortless style of a brand that has defined what the peak of iconic, cinematic style looks like, and continues to inspire a progressive outlook on how we will all shape our future. “
Speaking to WWD about the partnership, Page explained how he was hesistant at first to become the face of a fragrance.
“But they spoke so passionately and so creatively about how they wanted to deconstruct the fragrance and reimagine it,” he said of his initial meetings with the Armani team.
“They wanted to explore the themes of masculinity and progress, what Code and rewriting a code meant to them, how they could tie that into their own view of progression.
“I’d never spoken so in-depth about a fragrance before, but suddenly all this came to life because I had the privilege of speaking to people who felt very passionately about this.”
Page added: “There’s a whole world to explore here, and I had no idea it had existed before. So, I was very keen to get involved after that.”
The actor will join Armani beauty’s lineup of famous faces, including Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Zhong Chuxi, Adria Arjona, Alice Pagani, and Greta Ferro.
