AMI, founded in 2011 by Alexandre Mattiussi who previously trained at Givenchy, Dior and Marc Jacobs, offers ready-to-wear menswear that is distinctly Parisian, chic and effortless in style. The brand currently has three stores in Paris and will open its first ever UK store in Autumn this year as part of its expansion plans in Europe, America and Asia.
Craig McWilliam, Executive Director, London estate at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland said: “Duke Street is fast becoming one of the most exciting retail destinations in London’s West End, welcoming seven new retailers in the last 18 months. AMI is a fitting new addition and will play a significant part in ensuring this part of our estate is a great place to visit, to work and to live.”
AMI joins a host of brands that have opened on Duke Street in recent months as part of Grosvenor’s transformation of North Mayfair. Grosvenor completed the refurbishment of the award-winning Brown Hart Gardens in 2013 and The Beaumont hotel in October 2014, operated by Corbin & King and featuring ‘ROOM’, a habitable sculpture by leading British artist Antony Gormley.
