Born in 1980, Alexandre Mattiussi studied at Duperré fashion design school in Paris.
After formative experiences in several fashion houses - travelling between Paris, Milan and New York - the designer decided in 2011 to launch his own brand: AMI.
Created in Paris and inspired by this city ever since, AMI offers stylish and comprehensive wardrobes for men and women, blurring the boundaries between casual and chic.
The name AMI, the French word for friend, plays with the initials of Alexandre Mattiussi.
AMI captures a particular type of the French capital's nonchalance, one that is relaxed, authentic and friendly.

AMI and Magnum Photos collaborate to create
a photographic project on the subject of family.
The house teamed up with Magnum Photos for an extraordinary collaboration, and commissioned thirteen members of the renowned photography agency,
along with two guest video artists, to interpret the theme of family. This partnership, FAMILY, culminates in a traveling exhibition that will be held in four cities around the globe and a book published by Flammarion.
“Photography is one of my favorite art forms—I love the stories it tells; I love the lives, the moments, the places that it features; I love the reflection that it inevitably evokes. That’s why FAMILY is a project that I care about deeply. Collaborating with the iconic Magnum Photos agency and its talented artists was an extraordinary experience. It was also a unique opportunity to be able to put into images the theme of family in the broadest sense—which is so essential to the genesis and the quotidian of AMI—and to be able to promote the authentic values that characterize our brand since its inception.”
