If the number of views this post has received is any indication, quite a lot of you love AMI. If you’re indeed an AMI lover but weren’t quick enough to grab those handsome sneakers, then you’re in for a treat today.
AMI has been garnering presses left and right lately, first on the NYTimes and more recently on Businessweek. I’m not sure whether the name of the label (means “friend” in English) is intended as an emotional trigger or not, but even though I don’t know Alexandre Mattiussi personally and haven’t owned anything AMI yet, I’m feeling incredibly happy that they’re getting recognized. (I have made a vow to myself that next time I’m in Paris, I’ll be the proud owner of something AMI.)
If you look through their collections from the beginning, you’ll see that all the good presses are not paying lip service. Alexandre truly outshines himself season after season without ever losing the down-to-earth-ness in the way he designs clothes for men. Case in point: these exceptionally good-looking multicolored leather sneakers from SS14 collection. Alexandre certainly didn’t take the word multi-colored lightly here because as far as I can tell, there are 9 different colors on them. And in no way do they look absurd or ostentatious.
which is a fine and safe approach, but why not making it a whole lot more fun like Alexandre did in the runaway? Believe it or not, I have printed most of the looks from this collection to hang in my room for inspiration. You can grab these AMI Multicoloured leather trainers on Matchesfashion for $266.
