Mon 17th June: LCM SS14 - Agi & Sam

It's no news to this blog that I'm a signed up and dedicated follower of the fashions from duo Agi & Sam, so this season was exceptionally exciting as they had their first stand alone show.  Here are my snaps of some of the new SS14 garms on the rails backstage illustrating the latest print concept lifted from the patterned upholstery fabric of London's public transport seating.  This graphic velvety thick pile fabric has been replicated as panels on leather luggage thru to the weave of suiting and shirts.  Their instinctive sensitivity and feel for colour took place in the collection as SS warm monochrome looks in burnt sunset oranges, sky blues and azure sea aquas........... tying into the turquoise diffusion they have just launched in collaboration with Topman.  This project had a presence at the event via two models sat front row in the owl feather print suits and owl head masks.  Apparently the eyes don't move but I'm not so sure as they seemed perfectly fixed on all the action infront of them........ which cracked me up and served as a relief that Agi & Sam haven't lost their refreshing sense of humour whilst the clothes have matured.  Its fitting then that Paul Smith has come on board as mentor - an archetypal Brit success who has pioneered an empire founded on a classic look with an identifiable particular tongue-n-cheek covetable charisma. The baton has been passed down and the boys are running for stripes ..........
