  • Video by Mr Antony Crook

In the latest episode of our video series, A Saturday With..., the designer and founder of Ami, Mr Alexandre Mattiussi, takes us through how he spends Saturdays in his native Paris. This year's winner of the prestigious Andam Fashion Award, Mr Mattiussi spends a portion of his weekend attending to business matters: since its inception in 2011, Ami has enjoyed an almost unprecedented degree of success (and has become one of our favourite brands at MR PORTER) in such a short space of time, so it's easy to see why Mr Mattiussi is constantly working. "I like to go to the office on Saturdays because it's much quieter," he says. "I go there to work in the calm, and think about the collection." Of course Mr Mattiussi still finds time to zip off on his moped and unwind with friends, with those two most French of essentials in tow: a good wine and some fromage. Watch the video, above, to find out more.
