Ami Alexandre Mattiussi SS12

Ami Alexandre Mattiussi SS12 presented a timeless selection of tailored Summer staples that focused on immaculate cuts and precision evoking inherently preparatory looks. Purl knit jumpers were layered over shirts and paired with chinos in dusted pink, blue and stone variants. Outerwear was a mix of utility, Saville row and leisurewear influences. A burnt orange double front pocket collared jacket was followed by a utility mac and sports coat. Nautical references were alluded to via a navy double breasted blazer.

A slimline sliken tuxedo suit was perfectly placed for evening attire while a check rolled up suit with a lemon shirt spelled a 70′s era vacation. Cowl and round neck knits displayed a subtly evolving colour gradient as each stripe marked a new shade. Neckerchiefs, an accessory quickly growing in popularity which we spotlighted in our Trend Watch brought a touch of Riviera flair. A beat up duffel doctor’s carrier was the prescription for bags. Woven belts and moccasins brought handcraft style detail and suggested travel.
