Despite only having been founded in 2010, Alexandre Mattiussi’s Ami brand has become a mainstay in wardrobes of some of the world’s most stylish men. Formerly a creative at high fashion houses Givenchy and Dior, Mattiussi brought his training to bear on his own label with his attention to detail, cuts and fabrics, but designed for the everyday man who wants to look and feel both comfortable and stylish.
This philosophy is felt throughout his collection, from the relaxed cut trousers to the crisp white shirts with playful embroidery, but is perhaps best embodied in Ami’s embrace of the humble sweatshirt. Formerly a staple of slouchy athletic wear, Mattiussi has incorporated the jersey sweatshirt into his collection from the beginning, updating it with a premium loopback fabric and Portuguese construction.
Detailing is suitably striking, with the tricolour AMI logo appearing as a textured terrycloth applique in both ‘big’ and ‘small’ versions depending on how bold you want to go. Other versions include the playing card-inspired ‘Ami de Coeur’ logo embroidered to the chest for a more subtle finish, but all are cut in a not-too-tight, not-too-loose fit for the perfect medium between smart and casual, resulting in a surprisingly versatile transitional garment.
