Giorgio Armani is adding a new fragrance to its Sì franchise.
The luxury fashion and beauty house is rolling out a Sì Fiori eau de parfum, reports WWD, as well as a franchise-wide campaign starring Cate Blanchett, Sara Sampaio, Adwoa Aboah and Zhong Chuxi.
Blanchett stars in a new campaign film directed by Fleur Fortuné for the fifth and latest addition to the franchise. The film, whose tagline is “What if you said Sì?” sees the Hollywood star push herself with activities such as skydiving and wearing an evening gown to the supermarket.
A further series of films featuring Giorgio Armani beauty representatives Sampaio, Aboah and Chuxi, is scheduled for release in March.
“With this new campaign, we aim to consolidate the role of Sì as the brand’s women’s pillar, as well as further develop its leadership in the market,” Véronique Gautier, global president of Giorgio Armani fragrances and beauty at L’Oréal, told WWD.
The Si franchise has become one of the Italian house’s signature scent families, also comprising Si Passione and Si Intense offshoots.
Academy Award-winning actress Blanchett has fronted Si since 2013, with British model Aboah being snapped up to join the crew last spring, and Portuguese beauty Sampaio getting on board last September. JB
