LFW: Agi & Sam AW12

6 March 2019

As we entered the backstage at the MAN shows, we were greeted by the queue of boys covered in sweat-dribs and ruddy cheeks standing tall in line ready for their run-throughs at Agi & Sam. One could only begin to wonder what on earth was going on, but then as we discovered further about the collection it became all too clear that this was a deliberate attempt to recreate a modern-day survivor, fighting for his existence.

Whilst the unkempt hair and flushed complexion insinuated ‘sleeping rough’, the multiple layers of recycled fabrics and brightly-coloured tweed provided these men with protection under all conditions. The colourful prints and exquisite tailoring took a sophisticated twist on the designers’ idea of the last man on Earth, whilst each layer showed expensive fabrications from Linton tweeds to fine traditional knits. An explosion of colour, and collection we can't wait to get our hands on.

In collaboration with Elite Model Management London, we caught up with a few of the boys. Check out extracts from their interviews below.

Dan Felton, Elite Models (below):

What is your favourite part of the Fashion Week?
Catching up with friends I really only get to see during the Fashion Week, and finding out what they’ve been up to.

Rokas Zilionis, Elite Models (above and below):

Can you describe what you’re wearing, talk through your swag?
The swag… I am wearing an orange blazer, t-shirt and trousers with white shoes! Basically, everything orange!

What’s going on with the sweat on your forehead?
So there is a theme and it is the end of the world, hence why I am covered in sweat, red flushes and bruises all over my face.

If you could walk to any song, what would it be?
Probably Wiley, the track is called “Boom Blast”.
