Even to the most color intolerant men, y’all gotta admit that these prints from Alexander McQueen protegees Agape Mdumulla and Sam Cotton manage to attain formality even though they are eye catching. This collection from the duo for their label Agi & Sam once more prove that color which used to be the exclusive provenance of women is not anymore. The collection depicts the tale of the Native American colonisation of European states and you can see the fusion of European and American sensibilities in most of the pieces.
Agi & Sam are Agape Mdumulla (b. 1985) and Sam Cotton (b. 1986). The duo met whilst working at Alexander McQueen and founded the label in January 2010.
Agape Mdumulla was born in Tanzania and brought up in North Yorkshire. He studied Fashion Design and went on to present his first collection at London Graduate Fashion Week in July 2008. Following an enthusiastic response Agape went on to show at Iceland Fashion Week in 2009.
Sam Cotton was born in Stratford-upon-Avon and studied Illustration. He has worked as a Fashion Illustrator and Print
Designer at Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, Armand Basi, Carolyn Massey, Blaak Homme and J.W. Anderson.
