Sprinkled with stars amongst a sea of blue, Agi & Sam ticked all the texture boxes with their casually smart SS16 collection.
Stars and Stripes
With navy, sky blue and white pyjama stripes, the more colourful half of the collection pieced together a classic print at awkward angles. On trousers with the thinnest lines, the pattern was like a watery optical illusion (much like their UV ink invitations complete with torch) and under-layers adorned with the same hues of blue dripped out from beneath coats. The stars came to life as each model’s make-up look. As if they’d been flying too close to the sun, each was splashed with a slick of charcoal black masking their eyes with star imprints left clear. We’ll be trying that one with our own DIY stencils at some point.
Next time you’re invited to a party with the eternally confusing ‘smart casual’ dress code, pick Agi and Sam. A mash up of street trends and timeless styles, the duo stripped everything back into a single format coloured in soft camel and fresh white and blue. Caps without peaks, clean cut zipped hoodies, loose lightweight jackets like cropped lab coats and thick outerwear came together seamlessly and could be worn interchangeably like the capsule wardrobe of your dreams.
Shearling for Spring
It was everyone’s fuzz of choice for Autumn Winter, now Agi and Sam have extended shearling’s shelf life with pure white fluff collars as a contrasting texture to their sheer fabrics. Smooth leather-shine shorts and heavy duty plastic rain coats ticked plenty more texture boxes. Even better, with all their hoods are waterproofs in summer colours, you can dress in Agi and Sam in any weather. An intentional plan for fashion domination? We hope so.
