#LCM SS14 Backstage: Agi & Sam

There’s something supremely endearing about Agi & Sam. The two designers have steadily built up a really strong reputation on the back of brilliantly-cut design and playful prints that have become their signature aesthetic, most recently picked up for an establishment-cementing Topman collab. Now showing outside the MAN nursery slopes, the boys showed a new confidence that involved subverted bus-seat fabric prints and a bold new playing with lengths of garments – sleeves, hems, shorts, trousers, all were presented a few inches from where they might have been expected. Blocky, longer coats jostled with close-tailored jackets, super-short shorts were shown alongside cropped trousers, voluminous oversize Ts alongside kilt-like pleated shorts. To be honest, some of it I didn’t like, but what I appreciated was the breadth – it reflected the breadth of colour and also threw the theme of LCM over to the consumer; in showing a rainbow of colours (as many designers chose to this season), Agi and Sam communicated the construction of the show and the idea of striking out on their own as much as the construction of the garments and their striking patterns. Not only was it a brilliant show, it demonstrated that this duo have the potential to become one of the biggest, most important brands in Britain, and we’re thrilled to see where they go next.
