"I do this job for only one reason: to see my collection on people," says Mattiussi.
Its crazy to think its only been two years since the French designer Alexandre Mattiussi started his Ami fashion line. Before Ami he was working for Dior, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs. Alexandre has taken over and is becoming known for his fun, elegant, and well tailored sportswear.
The backdrop of the Ami 2014 spring runway show was a recreation of a 1950 retro chic French airport.
Mattiussi took the slogan flying with style literally. In the fifties men and women dressed up to fly. When you walked into the airport you would see a mix of businessmen in suits, young men hustling through the terminal with shirts tied around their waists, and men with bright tropical printed shirts on their way to holiday vacation.
This show wasn't necessarily about creating a new outlook on fashion. It was about having an entire collection of classics. What i love the most is that every look is sophisticated yet comfortable and put together!
