AMI is a bit of an anomaly in Paris Fashion Week. While the French capital's biggest draws pride themselves on boundary-pushing aesthetics and/or opulent craftsmanship, AMI is much more concerned with making easy, stylish menswear for easy, stylish men.

AMI's trousers are baggy, its jackets long, its sneakers white. There's no fuss, pomp or drama, here - you suspect Alexandre Mattiussi's man isn't a figment of his imagination, rather it's any one of his sizable group of stylish friends, many of whom walk in his shows and appear in his campaigns every season ("ami" is French for friend, FYI).

For FW16, those aforementioned loose-legged trousers were produced with satin side stripes or plush camel fabrics. There were shearling field coats, high-sheen nylon pieces and checkboard-patterned garments of all sorts - trousers, bombers, topcoats and macs. Basically, tons and tons of clothes that'd slip into pretty much any wardrobe on the planet - and look really good while doing so.

AMI's aesthetic changes little season-on-season, and that's entirely the point. Maybe the few dazzling, sparkly looks at the end of the show are a bit uncharacteristically out-there, but you get the picture. Clearly Alexandre knows what he likes - and judging from his label's popularity (both inside and outside the industry), he knows what a lot of men like too.
