Alexandre says ‘‘The ‘Matches’ guy is someone very aware of style, of quality and of ‘cool'. I wanted to create a capsule that would embody these three things so that it represented both MATCHESFASHION.COM and AMI”, and describes the collection as “casual, effortless, spontaneous”. The exclusive collection, available now, is priced between £85 to £685. Words by Peter Bevan
