London based menswear label Agi & Sam have extended their designs to women for the first time in an exciting collaboration with legendary retail mecca Harvey Nichols. Agi & Sam have become best known for their fun, bright and inventive prints for their menswear collections, with their most recent spring 2013 collection digitally replicating and updating traditional english embroidery amongst other influences.
The debut womenswear range consists of seven patterned shirts, each printed and woven and made in silk twill and 40s cotton mixes. Highlights include oversized statement check, painterly sixties micro geos to the fun tongue-in-cheek cockerel and duck motif’s.
The duo have always wanted to create a womenswear line, but were always reticent until now. The duo said “We have always hoped we could translate quite easily from mens to womenswear, but we wanted to hold out until we felt ready enough to start working with the right partner in the right way. Harvey Nichols is exactly the right store for us to begin the growth of Agi & Sam’s womenswear collections”.
The collection will build on Agi & Sam distinctive print and design aesthetic, with the range taking direct inspiration from the label’s menswear autumn/winter 2012-13 collection, which was inspired by time-travel.
