Agi & Sam are still pondering childhood. Last season they were revisiting a collection Agape Mdumulla designed when he was a small boy while musing on the way kids interact with clothes. For S/S 16 they were thinking about nightmares and the fears and worries of childhood. It's apt that they were feeling a bit on edge - they've had a tough few seasons struggling to find their niche and point of view. Is it jazzy printed tailoring? Sporty basics? Conceptual, reworked suiting?

Well the pair had nothing to be afraid of. This season they were back on track - so maybe that notion of 'growing out irrational child-like fears' made sense. It felt like they'd taken a deep breath, stepped back and actually thought about what men want to wear - more specifically what they want to wear. Both of the duo dress well, so this nod to their personal style made sense. It helped the collection feel effortless, natural, relevant rather than forced or overworked. It was almost textbook masculine dressing - blue stripes, nice denim, a good mac, corduroy. Their trousers were particularly excellent - just wide enough to feel current, slouchy enough to look like they could have walked straight off that runway into the 'real world'. From the comfy boxy shirts to the fluffy collars and great pyjama details, the collection read like an ode to lounging, slouching and chilling. When the pair get it right they make it look so easy.
