Mike Amiri’s Los Angeles-based line is only four and a half years old, but he already considers brands such as Prada and Gucci his peers. And because of this, he thought it was important to debut his fall 2018 collection, which he calls his most comprehensive, fully realized effort so far, in Paris instead of the U.S.
“I believe there is new space for independent brands in the context of luxury to have a voice,” Amiri said. “Before there were so many different walls. But playing on that stage is important and it shows the collection in the context of brands who I consider peers. We only sell to shops where we are adjacent to these brands.”
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B.
