Having been aware of Agi & Sam’s work for a few years now it’s fantastic to see they’ve not lost their edge and continue to out do themselves. Agi Mdumulla and Sam Cotton’s AW14 collection is one of their most successful to date showing real growth and maturity, yet still retaining the pair’s playful spirit.
With signature print on print clashes, it’s a monochromatic affair inspired by Agi’s recent travels through the Masai territory. It’s a brilliant pared-back exploration of African clothing and prints, scattered with more familiar, Western influences. The shapes and silhouettes are wonderful with long, lightweight layers hanging loosely with ankles exposed throughout – a mischievous touch for an Autumn/Winter collection.
