Menswear Designer for Dior + Givenchy Goes Indie

The French menswear brand Ami has just set up its first shop in the Marais, just a few doors up from the concept store Merci, on Boulevard Beaumarchais. The young ready-to-wear label – launched in 2011 by Parisian designer Alexandre Mattiussi (who previously worked for Dior, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy) – is wearable, affordable clothes for the modern metropolitan man. Think leather brogues, chambray shirts, knit cardigans and faded jeans, in a neutral palette of navy, black, beige and bordeaux. The warm and welcoming 75-square-meter boutique is part Parisian apartment, part tailor’s atelier, with leather-topped oak tables and minimal chrome lights.
