After breaking down the streetwear scenes in LA and New York in our exclusive interview, Mike Amiri now turns to the cinematic and musical experiences of his youth for FW18, his first fashion presentation held within the École des Beaux Arts in Paris.
With 1987 horror comedy thriller The Lost Boys particularly noted, the film helped define not only an aesthetic with distressed leather, repaired denim and fine chain detailing, but also integrating a sense of nostalgia throughout the collection.
A mixture of underground, dark energies of Hollywood’s glam rock, alongside skate/street influences are prevalent throughout as well, while metallic finishes, iridescent touches, Swarovski detailing, striped glitter appliqués and micro studded leather punctuate the range, to also acknowledge the classicism of rock and roll that has been infused with a modern twist.
