The Scared to Be Lonely producer - voted the world's number one DJ by readers of DJ Mag - will join model and actress Cara Delevingne and Chinese actor/singer Li Yifeng among Giorgio Armani's picks for his latest project.

The Dutchman revealed the big fashion news in an emailed statement to Billboard on Monday (17Jul17).

Explaining he is "very thankful and very happy with how everything turned out", he writes: "To me, Armani Exchange is elegant, but its (sic) also ahead of the curve. The clothing I was wearing for the campaign shoot, I would wear all of the time, because it's comfy, super refreshing, unique, but still elegant and classic."

He also announced the news in a Twitter post, captioning a shot of himself wearing an A/X eye patch and black leather jacket: "It's official! @armaniexchange #axchange," he wrote.

Announcing the faces for his upcoming campaign, Armani said, "For this campaign, I wanted three faces capable of recounting the individualist A|X spirit in a novel, unconventional way, three different and surprising individuals, all creative and free in their expression and whom I wanted to envelop in Armani style.

"Cara Delevingne is an irreverent, chameleon-like character interpreting different aesthetics and philosophies; Martin Garrix, who is capable of making magic with music; and Li Yifeng, a multi-faceted talent who speaks to a vast audience. A|X is Armani style in its most metropolitan, free self just like my three testimonials."

Meanwhile, Garrix has also announced he'll be joining Justin Bieber on the upcoming North American leg of the pop star's Purpose Tour, which kicks off on 29 July (17) in Arlington, Texas.
