At no point in time have streetwear labels and relatively unknown labels with owners that hardly have any design talent been more popular. Kanye West, Rihanna and the likes only need to wear a label and like flash they are flying off shelves. My main point in all of these rant is that it seems like if you join the elite 'designer' club you lose that street appeal that sells loads of clothes.
Agi & Sam whilst never been a streetwear label have morphed into a British powerhouse and arguably the face of British fashion thanks to hard-work from the lads Agape & Sam not forgetting to mention BFC funding and mentor-ship from the likes of Paul Smith. With all of this support fused with talent its hard to not produce something stellar. The Agi & Sam collection was my fav from the London Shows and the designer once again showed versality and skewed away from the repeating silhouette trend being carried on by more established brands like Givenchy in Paris.
I picked my 5 fav looks... the rest can be seen on style.com so there's no point duplicating.

We cross over to Paris temporarily for one of my fav labels 3.1 Philip Lim.Don't get confused by my choice of words as even though i use 'fav' i do not own any piece of clothing or accessories from 3.1 Philip Lim but i adore and respect the brands aesthetic.In an era where print rules Philip Lim has managed to show that silhoutte still counts.

I'd buy a lot from Astrid Anderson only if the pricing was friendlier. Been hooked on the labels sports aesthetic from day 1 and would love to see it try maybe baseball or some other sport for inspiration in a future collection.

Quintessentially British brand Burberry Prorsum showed class without any prints or silhouette gimmicks. Here the design team focused on cuts, cloth and color. Call it the 3 c's if you will.
