Denim, meticulously designed and constructed through bespoke, in-house fabrication processes, takes center stage in Amiri’s collections. Tonal gradients, patchwork, and repair techniques evoke a homespun charm, with standout examples like the AMIRI Jacquard—a custom-woven textile milled in Italy. Men’s and women’s jean silhouettes, ranging from extra-wide to kick-flare, showcase Amiri’s innovative approach to denim wear. The deliberate limitation of denim styles production ensures each piece meets the highest quality standards, maintaining Amiri’s superior standard through collaborations with skilled craftspeople in the L.A. Arts District and Italy.

Collaborating with Amiri brings rhythm to couture, merging the pulse of sound with the allure of design, creating a symphony of style and substance.
