MAN Menswear S/S13: Inspiration From Grunge, Miami Vice and Spiritualism

“It was a strong showing for S/S13 from the three chosen Fashion East MAN designers, Astrid Andersen, Shaun Samson and Agi & Sam. A great and mixed combination of styles and aesthetics came through from each designer. Andersen’s take on sportswear silhouettes was accentuated with bright pops of colour and print, Samson came through with a 90s stoner rock vibe set against  Japanese ‘kawai’ style references and Agi & Sam’s nod to Magnum PI with 80s tailoring brought up to date and interjected with fantastic print techniques. Each have a very defined look and each have been gradually building over the last couple of seasons and this showing felt like a big leap forward for each of them.” MORE

“This season was about growing up. Season’s in the past have been about youth and running a muck on the streets but this time I wanted it to be more mature. The cuts are more fitted, I experimented with cutting on the body and then also with chrome embellishment”
