A moment of restrained escapism at AMI, with founder designer Alexandre Mattiussi creating a collection for a world finally emerging from Covid tentatively. Nothing tentative, however, about the brand's explosive growth.
Paris fashion house AMI has revealed plans to stage a physical runway show in Paris in the upcoming season, the latest independent fashion brand to confirm it will stage a live catwalk event in the next Paris season.
Few French designers are in better shape today than Alexandre Mattiussi, whose AMI show Tuesday evening in Paris was a brilliant statement of how less can be – in the hands of a skilled practitioner – infinitely more.
Just when you thought that the dark mood over Paris caused by 'yellow vest' protests would cast a shadow over the menswear season when along comes a brilliant celebration of the beauty and élan of the capital city.
