AMI means “friend” in french but now on his second runway show Alexandre Mattiussi is positioning himself to be other designers enemy with his breakout standout collections. What make AMI awesome every season is that he make fashion for a “man” that merely like to look nice. Nothing risque but nothing boring. If you haven’t noticed I’m always looking for a collection/designer that is representative of the decade.
The full-length coat is a staple with all men right now, tapered/cropped denim is a favorite winter & spring and boots will never go away. The pants are cool with the relaxed but thoughtful cuts, nothing too tight but room enough for practicality while still being dope. I enjoying dressing to the nines like any other fashion enthusiast I have a closet full of suits and slacks to prove it but I always go for what effortless and straightforward.
The mix of athletic-wear of sweats and sneaker with dress coats and turtlenecks are ideal for me and easy to do. Here you can see Mattiussi made an easy collection but definitely military inspired with the aviator coat, the hunter green hue infused throughout and obviously the shearling collars. I want all the pants even the acid wash cropped denim and culottes, the tops are a wearable balance between street-chic and dressy. This collection have so many keen elements that is great for winter, men and fashion. This period in fashion is all about effortless dressy and here is another collection that not only thinspire my personal aesthetic and future shopping purchases but will be a great reference for the decade.
AMI has everything a guy into fashion or not will gush over, nothing that has to grow on you or requires restyling just a well curated collection. I wish getting through my crunches were as weasy.
