In support of (PRODUCT) RED, Giorgio Armani unveiled his men's and women's Emporio Armani (PRODUCT) RED capsule collection on September 21, 2006 during London Fashion Week at a unique televised fashion and music event called (Emporio Armani) RED - ONE NIGHT ONLY. In developing his collection, Giorgio Armani collaborated with Ghanaian contemporary artist Owusu-Ankomah, whose art is featured on clothing, accessories and packaging in the Emporio Armani (PRODUCT) RED collection. The range of products expanded further with the launch of Emporio Armani (PRODUCT) RED women's and men's fragrance and jewelry in Spring 2007. For the Emporio Armani (PRODUCT) RED WHITE fragrances, Owusu-Ankomah interprets a pictogram with positive, symbolic charms. On a pure matte background, his striking, ultra-graphic representation of "The Wild Child" is printed in brilliant red.
