Spring 2015 will be presented by Agi&Sam at London Collections: Men

28 May 2014 | + Boyana Dimova

There's no denying that Agi & Sam is one of the biggest success stories of the London menswear scene in recent years. Founded by Agi Mdumulla & Sam Cotton and Sam Cotton in 2010, in only three years the duo have secured MAN sponsorship, launched a successful Topman capsule collection and taken home the gong for Best Emerging Menswear Talent at the most recent British Fashion Awards. All the more surprising when you consider that their autumn winter 2014 collection is only their second solo show.

Having moved to London only five years ago, their success has been just as sudden. After meeting as interns at Alexander McQueen, the two decided if they were going to work for free, they'd rather work for themselves. Following the quiet fashion week debut of their first collection in 2010, their colorful lookbook went verifiably viral online. Fashion East, an English non-profit meant to support young design talent, sponsored their next show, and shortly thereafter their line was picked up by Topman's MAN show for three consecutive seasons.

In their show notes, Mdumulla and Sam Cotton riffed on the first world versus the third world, exploitation and appropriation. They imagined traditional Western garments-double-breasted coats and tailored suit jackets, for example-transformed by the addition of long, flowing layers, like those worn by African tribesmen.
