Agi & Sam use children’s patchworks for their fall 2015 collection

Agi Mdumulla and Sam Cotton, the minds behind Agi & Sam brand, presented some days ago their fall 2015 collection, injecting color and high energy to the London Menswear Fashion Week. The designer duo was inspired by Mdumulla’s first ever clothing range, called “The Coolman Collection”, which he conceived at the tender age of four. Mdumulla’s mother showed him the long forgotten drawings during one of his visits to his family home in Yorkshire. Mdumulla got so impressed that decided to base an entire collection on this early memory, interpreting the way children imagine fashion and staying true to their always inspiring perspective of reality.

The designers took it a step further and visited their old primary schools in order to interview the kids about their favorite clothes, asking them to reconstruct jackets that were torn apart at the seams, using Velcro. They also gave them vintage VHS covers and prescription drug packaging, urging them to create their own patchworks. Agi & Sam later used these creations in a series of coats and deconstructed jackets, translating the children’s vision of fashion to the adult world.

The collection also included a series of colorful leather suits and playful, Mondrian-inspired knitwear pieces, in collaboration with Jaeger brand. Many models were wearing some striking, Lego masks, invented by fellow make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench, which made the perfect match and stole the spotlight. “We always want to have fun with clothes,” said Agi & Sam after the show. “We wanted to look at how children see clothes, and how they possibly could change our perceptions of why clothes are made the way they are.” And judging by the results, they definitely did it!
