Pioneering international luxury fashion brand Amiri opened its first store in South Africa in Sandton City on Monday. The store is located in the mall’s prestigious Diamond Walk.
Amiri has partnered with Grammy award winner Nkosinathi ‘Black Coffee’ Maphumulo for its South African chapter.
The global fashion brand has grown to prominence in the United States’ luxury fashion market. It was founded by American fashion designer Mike Amiri in 2014.
The brand continues to expand its global influence with an unwavering commitment to integrity, authenticity and a dedication to quality that defines every facet of its operations.
The brand also has a special formal partnership with retail pioneer Arie Fabian, Grammy award winner Black Coffee as well as DJ and entrepreneur Themba “Euphonik” Nkosi.
A proud moment
The luxury store promises to be an immersive and lavish shopping environment that encapsulates Amiri’s distinctive aesthetics.
Black Coffee has an immense passion for music, fashion and art. He wore the Amiri crème tailored suits with his son when he collected his first Grammy. He wore a hand-embroidered Amiri shirt when he performed in Madison Square Gardens.
Speaking at the opening on Monday night, Arie Fabian said: “We are very proud about the grand opening of global luxury brand Amiri’s first store in the Diamond Walk. This marks a bold synergy where style meets innovation, embodying a fusion of cultures, and bringing forth a unique narrative in a fashion that resonates with the spirit of the African landscape while redefining global trends. The Amiri store experience is immersive, harmonious and captures their distinctive aesthetic.”
Beats harmonise, style resonates
Black Coffee said in music, beats harmonise and in fashion, style resonates.
“Collaborating with Amiri brings rhythm to couture, merging the pulse of sound with the allure of design, creating a symphony of style and substance. The opening of the store in South Africa is massive for the team and we are honoured to share it with everyone today,” said Black Coffee.
