LABEL LOVER Brand Origin Paris
Designer’s Background Award-winning designer Alexandre Mattiussi (above) launched his own label, Ami, in 2011 after spending years working in the menswear departments at Dior, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs.
DESIGN SIGNATURES Mattiussi’s ethos fuses contemporary and streetwear elements without forgoing a sense of everyday wearability. Well-tailored sports jackets and casual-cut shirts are considered Mattiussi’s greatest strengths.
BRAND PHILOSOPHY First and foremost, Mattiussi designs for himself and his friends. “[This collection] is a proposition of real clothes for a real man,” he says.
