Alexandre Mattiussi, formerly of Dior, Givenchy, and Marc Jacobs, has reinterpreted the classic (and often gauche) luau print with this intricate yet muted tangle of leaves, fronds, and flora. The highly cultivated pattern graces everything from laptop cases to ties to pants in his Ami line this season—including the backside of this bewitching deck.
