Amiri’s year of meditation on womenswear resulted in a collection with what he called a “direct and narrow focus.”
It’s not revolutionary, with its button-up trucker jackets tucked into slouchy blue jeans, but reliance on All American style—and specifically Los Angeles art gallery minimalism—gives Amiri enough of a niche in the market. Leather yoked jeans and a gorgeous chocolate double-breasted suit are instantly wantable.
Still, for all the polish Amiri’s new woman has, you can’t help but wish she had a little grit. Beautiful, austere clothing feels like something we’d all willingly leave in the Before Times in favor of garments that reflect the lives lived within them.
His menswear has that mojo, carrying memories of a life well-lived. Amiri is a powerful creative director; chances are his womenswear will have its own mojo soon.
