Agi & Sam S/S 2014 by Krister Selin

I love Agi & Sam. A recent collaboration with Topman, ‘The Owls‘, featured a range of football-kit inspired clothing and gave a taster of things to come. I am hoping that ‘The Owls’ was a nod to Sheffield Wednesday. I couldn’t give two hoots (geddit?) about the team, but I love that city.

Two enormous owls sat amongst the crowds at their S/S 2014 show last Sunday. Yes, I know I’m behind. I was genuinely surprised when the show began with mostly all black looks. Agi & Sam are renowned for their glorious use of colour and so it seemed a bit curveball. A speckled black suit worn over a crisp white shirt appeared first, styled with visor shades. An oversized black shirt came next, featuring a discrete monochrome pattern.

It wasn’t before long that the design duo’s inimitable prints appeared, though. This season inspiration had come from public transport seating patterns, the bloody geniuses. If you want to look like the back seat of the number 8 bus, as I certainly do, then Agi & Sam are for you. Rich fabrics carried hallucinogenic patterns in vibrant colours, some discrete, some so obvious that even the models wore large black visors to protect their eyes. All trousers maintained a clean cut with a tapered leg, cropped at the ankle.

Box-shaped blazers, some with cropped sleeves and others full-length, appeared in block colours, from powder blue to acidic orange.

Accessories included black oxfords embellished with bright stripes (in collaboration with Oliver Spencer) and large black luggage that featured some of the transport soft furnishings patterns.
