Menswear design duo, Agi and Sam (Agape Mdumulla and Sam Cotton), are among the exclusive group of uber talented designers putting the UK at the forefront of the global fashion stage. Not to mention taking the industry by storm. Ahead of their next London Collections: Men show later this month, the pair are launching an exclusive collection in collaboration with high street giant Topman. Inspired by the football jerseys of yesteryear, the collection combines lux sportswear, quirky animal motif prints and unquestionably great tailoring.
Meeting as interns at McQueen, Agi and Sam joined forces a year laterto start their own label. Nowadays the young label is establishing itself as a brand synonymous with playful, punchy prints and well-crafted design (echoed in their high street collab range too). Their aim is simple: to come up with innovative ways to turn conventional menswear on its head. With just a few years in the fashion game under their belts, Agi and Sam have fast become a hugely anticipated fixture of the Fashion East MAN roster – the pioneering scheme, which helps emerging designers showcase their collections to an international audience.
