Several weeks ago we featured news that design duo Agi & Sam would be launching a new collection for Topman. Today we are pleased to be able to actually show you their innovative designs, which are available to buy online now. But first, a little background information on the designers.
Agi & Sam have gained a loyal fanbase, following their unique use of digital prints and matching them with tailored cuts. Each subsequent mainline collection has shown a growing maturity and confidence and the designers say that their ideal man to wear their clothes (well the designer’s football kit at least) would be a young George Best in his hey day.
Known for their quirky choice in models for their catwalk shows, in their last show back in January, they featured models such as Great British Sewing Bee pinup and designer Patrick Grant, who was made up to look like a Gainsborough portrait subject in real life. They frequently use older men and tend to stay away from the industry standard pale white young male.
Their collection for Topshop focuses mainly on owls, and features suits with shirts in the same print, bright colour pop jackets, knee length shorts with longer length socks and delicately printed shirts and tees.
Their Topshop collection features 20 pieces at present, and Agi & Sam say that as a starting point for the collaboration they took the idea of an imaginary football team and not only designed the football kit for them, but a selection of everyday wear, all including the designers signature prints and tailoring.
Although their new collection may not appeal to mainstream customers, Agi & Sam’s followers will see this as an opportunity to pick up a few select pieces for less than the normal designer price. However, as their clothes reach a wider audience, we can see this design pair becoming a real staple for men’s wardrobes across the UK and beyond.
We’ve picked our favourites from their collection but you can see the entire collaboration at Topman.com
