While I was living the dream in Florence I missed all of LCM, and I’m still catching up on what I missed. Agi & Sam isn’t a label that I’ve had the privilege to see on the runway before so I was pretty gutted when I saw the shots of their new collection – it’s right up my street. Agi Mdumulla and Sam Cotton both trained with the late, great, Alexander McQueen and as pedigrees go it doesn’t get much better than that. Their audacious use of prints is a testament to McQueen’s influence. Of course the clothes conveys this sentiment more eloquently than I can, so let’s look at those instead…
The all-over print was a key trend for this season (obvz I love it) but it wasn’t as exciting anywhere as it was at Agi & Sam. For some people even a head to toe print is too subtle (this is about me) you still need accessories. Sometimes a Magnum PI moustache just isn’t enough. That’s where Oliver Peoples come in. What kind of homage to Miami Vice comes without a decent aviator shade? A rubbish one, that’s what. That’s why Agi & Sam chose the Oliver Peoples ‘Benedict’. It’s a classic for a reason. Now, let’s have some more hot ‘tache action.
Traduction – Pendant que j’étais occupé à me la couler douce à Florence, j’ai raté les défilés pour hommes à Londres, dont celui de Agi & Sam. Agi Mdumulla et Sam Cotton sont tous deux des disciples du génial Alexander McQueen (RIP).
