Ami by Alexandre Mattiussi

Yesterday evening, I attended the launch of Ami by Alexandre Mattiussi at Barneys New York flagship store. After reading Alexandre's bio I was really looking forward in attending the launch of his debut collection. He's designed at Dior Homme's 30 Avenue Montaigne line, at Marc Jacobs, and at Givenchy prior to launching Ami, which means 'friend' in French.

Alexandre is not interested in designing fashion clothes with obnoxious bells and whistles that have you leaving the house looking like a proper fashion victim. Instead, Ami's first collection is smart, chic, and understated. Perfect staple pieces in rich colors, good fabrics, and good proportions is really all you need and is exactly what Ami is about. His flannels are perfection! There was a grey flannel that caught my attention and is on my wish list as we speak, as well as, a, ivory flannel front cardigan.  Ami's price points are mid-range starting at $90 for a belt and up to $1,200 for a classic leather jacket. 

Not only is Ami exclusive to Barneys in New York, but is also available at Mr Porter, The Webster.

Dear Elegants, chers “Amis”,

Wanna know my first impressions on this a new hot French label called “Ami” by Mattiussi? Here it is, after pleasing myself last week for the French Sales opening day at Le Bon Marché: I bought cable jumper and one sweater - trust me, this is superb:
