Agisam 2011 - Fall/Winter Collection

"With the strong emphasis on entirely bespoke and humor, [AgiaandSam] believe that Fashion should never be taken too seriously"

AgiaandSam, or Agia & Sam, is the brainchild of two designers that met while working for Alexander McQueen - and they are definitely bringing an interesting approach to menswear. Their work consists of inspiration from the early 90's, mixed with a side of high fashion, and topped with modern fits and silouhettes. You can check out the complete lookbook over at their site, and while you are there, read about more of Agape Mdumulla and Sam Cotton's adventures in fashion. While their current offerings are bold, bright, and upfront, the particular collection drew inspiration from the "effects of gentrification and boganistion through society and culture over the last 25 years.”

*Disclaimer* - While I for one would not rock 95% of the items in their collection - I can appreciate it from a "fashion is art" perspective.
