MATTHEW AMES / ENCENS n°26 – 2011

photo 1‘When one zooms in on his collection, one can only be stunned at Matthew Ames’s desire to establish a list of priorities and to make do with just that. His jackets stops within a millimetre of the pocket on the trousers : no creases, no feeling of an office shabbiness exposed at working lunch. Coats fits in everywhere, as a result of extensive refinement, and the asphalt grey matches perfectly with the camel and black leather tones of this neutral wardrobe’.
