Amiri’s latest collection has once again been one of the undisputed highlights of our SS22 showcase. It’s an eclectic mix of classic silhouettes updated with seasonal themes and entirely new conceptual designs that sings of a designer that has found his groove and is now allowing himself to freely explore the furthest recesses of his creative psyche.
For this latest feature, we’ve put together a hotlist of our most cherished styles from the season, breaking down and exploring all the individual elements that make them the showpieces that they are.
Amiri Bone Runner Alabaster White Trainers
Amiri’s beloved Bone Runner trainer has gone from a one-off, statement piece to an essential collection mainstay in a remarkably short amount of time, reinforcing the strength of its commercial and critical appeal. What’s even more impressive is how every subsequent colourway and variant has managed to affect the same kind of emotional response from Amiri superfans as the original Bone Runner and thankfully, this ‘Alabaster’ white variant from the label’s SS22 showcase does little to buck the trend. The smooth, ivory-like colour palette not only looks great but is unassuming enough to direct just the right amount of attention to the rest of your accompanying outfit.
Amiri Splatter Down Gilet
Undoubtedly one of the crowning jewels of Amiri’s SS22 menswear collection, the Splatter Down Gilet represents the very best of Mike’s creative propensity and perhaps one of the most unconventional designs he’s produced in a while. His creative process often tends to be centred more around meticulous craftsmanship and pop culture referencing than it is inspired by abstract thought or the avant-garde, but this featured gilet is a proud outlier. A bold, expressive print dominates the design and demands attention as the focal point of your off-duty outfit. And we suggest letting it do just that, combining it with some slightly less explosive colours; lest you run the risk of oversaturating your look.
Amiri Vintage Bandana Artpatch Clay Indigo Jeans
By now it’s no secret that Mike’s got a special place in his heart for 80s rock music iconography with the classic bandana motif becoming a regular feature of his ready-to-wear collections. It’s the central attraction in these featured Vintage Bandana Artpatch jeans, bringing the design to life with large vintage bandana appliques in a spritely orange colourway that immediately draws the gaze. It’s a design that represents all the very best tendencies and proclivities of Mike Amiri and the perfect representation of the quintessential aesthetic that’s made the label so successful in such a short space of time.
Amiri Blue Paint Drip Core Logo Hoodie
The new ‘Paint Drip’ story introduced for the SS22 campaign is the latest adaptation of the classic ‘Amiri’ signature, riffing on the original design with an injection of colour and an air of Daliesque surrealism. Mike’s experimentation with the abstract has been a bit of a theme for his latest menswear showcase and is evident once more with this Drip Core Logo Hoodie that catches the eye with an energetic, electric blue base colour. Why not double down and pair yours with either the Paint Drip Logo Aged Black Jeans or the Paint Drip Core Logo Sweat Pants to complete Mike’s vision for the story?
Amiri Black & Blue Bones Varsity Jacket
Having featured previously in our past Amiri showcases, the Bones Varsity Jacket has the spirit of a somewhat timeless classic at this point. Mike tampers with the formula this time around with contrasting blue sleeves that align the aesthetic with the colourful twist that characterises the label’s SS22 collection. But the devil remains in the detail for this staple silhouette, with sharp embroidery, striking graphics and premium leather trimmings all still very much present and accounted for. Run this with a silk shirt and tailored trousers for an off-kilter, smart-casual look with a touch of Amiri flair.
