LCM: Agi & Sam AW16

10 January 2016

It's all about community and roots for Agi & Sam's Autumn/Winter '16 collection. As two British boys, the designer duo have always reached towards personal, intimate connections and experiences for a concept to build their designs around - but what we love most is seeing the progression that these guys make season after season.

"London is like no other - it's so culturally diverse, which breeds creativity, gives so much room for freedom and sets the pace for the rest of the design world."

Sometimes you don't have to venture too far to find inspiration. Sometimes there is more in front of you than if you were to hop on a plane to somewhere you have never been before. It's about opening your eyes and being aware, taking in your surroundings - which is exactly what Agi & Sam do best.

A cool mix of military details, mod hair dos and muted dark tones flooded the catwalk. The focus was on the oversized shape and structure of each piece. Outerwear was functional and fashionable - cropped, layered and constructed immaculately. Army green and navy blue took over the collection, with a few checkered full looks standing out from the crowd. Hats by Yashka Moore added an extra twist to the looks.

Our eyes were opened to a new light as for the first season ever, Agi and Sam designed for women. Following the same structural shapes and tones, the girls added diversity and freedom, proving that fashion has no barriers. Our cover boy Sang Woo Kim at Select Models rocked the catwalk as he often does, as well as familiar faces Jos (AMCK), Ben Rees (AMCK), Lorenzo Sutto (Elite) and Charlie James (Next) also making an appearance.
