Photographs Agi and Sam
Guess who’s back? Yeah I know it’s been a while. I’ve been so busy, with moving house, having an operation, finishing final exams...preparing to go ‘off’ to uni...bore bore bore.
This year has been jammed packed full of all things British from the Diamond Jubilee to (the greatest ever) Olympics. This summer has been one I’ll never forget. I recently went holidaying in the Rivera....erm thats the English Riviera by the way...(Google it).This holiday was a memorable one, well I shan't call it a holiday it was more of a ‘Natural Vacation’ in those terms I went camping. Me staying in a tent? I’m not sure how I survived. It wasn’t as bad as i’m making it out to sound (i’m lying it was) the sea was so relaxing! It was one of the funniest trips I’ve had since last going camping FOUR years ago and getting chased by a wild horse...yeah I’ll leave it there.
On a brighter note one of the nominees for the emerging talent in menswear Agi and Sam have taken the British fashion scene by storm in recent months, creating cool and innovative designs. The brand known for their ‘print on print’ action have taken risk after risk in producing something very strong and captivating.
For me these designs are something that immediately grip your attention ....(trust me i do get very excited by clothes...). The loud prints and sharp tailoring allow pieces to become both timeless and youthful their something both me and my Granddad could wear. The cuts in some of the garments, especially the jackets I thought veered almost to hoodism reflecting a strong street element but the chalky colours balance out the edge which make all the pieces very wearable.
