It’s summer in the city. The sea glistens with cartoon knock-out stars and heatwaves are summoned from the tarmac. Gold and purple banners fly proud and palm trees splinter an Yves Klein sky. Los Angeles is back where it thrives, riding a wave of fresh energy and bold adventure. From his DTLA studio, Mike Amiri channels this feeling better than most, embracing his native city as a perennial muse.

Cue Amiri‘s SS21 collection, an ode to his native LA, its streets and the multitude of lifestyles and personalities who call it home. Encouraging a renewed mindset of leisure and wellbeing that is quintessentially Californian, Amiri’s signature relaxed tailoring draws influences from LA’s vibrant culture; from its recent sport victories (congrats to the Lakers and Dodgers) through its thriving Art district and eternally-evolving music scene. 70s-inspired sportswear crafted in silk trim offers the formal touch of fine eveningwear as jumpsuits nod towards DIY craft and cannabis prints interpret Cali’s wellness lifestyle and retreats. Experience the collection via our HERO 25 imagery below.
