Established in 2014 by Mike Amiri, the luxury menswear and womenswear brand, AMIRI, marries refined craftsmanship with the glamor of LA’s authentic skate and street culture. An LA native, founder Mike Amiri began his career in fashion by handcrafting unique stage pieces for iconic hard rockers such as Axl Rose and Steven Tyler. Eternally intrigued by such dark, heroic figures, his flair for tapping into this rock ‘n’ rock ethos led him to design an exclusive capsule collection for the LA-concept store, Maxfield. Since this debut collection, he established a distinct design signature with his deconstructed, hand-embellished denim jeans, leather jackets, grungy flannel shirting and graphic tee-shirts — all grounded in the nostalgic touchstones of his Californian youth. Today, AMIRI presents a collection bi-annually at Paris Fashion Week and is available from some of the most renowned retailers worldwide.
