AMI – ALEXANDRE MATTIUSSI
After working at Dior, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs, in 2011 Alexandre Mattiussi launched AMI, (formed from his initials plus the last letter of his name), with a line of timeless clothing in luxury materials at affordable prices. In 2013 AMI was the first men’s ready-to-wear brand to earn the prestigious ANDAM prize awarded by the National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts). Designed by Studio Ko (Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty) the aim was to resemble a fashionable Paris apartment, warm and welcoming. The same pair were responsible for Leather Plastic Bag and Cyril Lignac’s pastry shop in Paris, as well as a branch of Aesop in London.
