When it comes to one colour confidence, I'm often inclined to shadow myself in black. Colour doesn't blind me; if anything, I'm a rainbow addict at heart, so would feel an itch to paint myself in every colour at once, rather than dedicating an outfit diction to a pure green palette for example. But ever since Agi & Sam's real arrival at London Fashion Week in February, I was never quite able to get their wacky world out of the inspiration bracket in my head. Their collection was a carnival of intense crayon colour, pupetting the models with playground joking humor to amazing effect. A burnt orange lumberjack pretty much hijacks an entire outfit, what looks like hundreds and thousands of sweets explode onto the canvas of a dramatic caped blazer gent, and different tones of blue swirls together in an intricately layered casual/suave mash up. For some reason this collection strikes the scientific puzzle of 'the chicken and the egg' to me, in this case asking whether colour or layering should be the first element of importance and dictatorship in a striking look. But what Agi & Sam have mastered is the marriage of these two, teasing colour into all fabrics that makes the model look like an hypnotic and intriguing work of art.
So I couldn't resist going for bullying blue in my outfit below. One of my recent purchases that's involved in the mix is the pastel blue trilby by Kangol; a perfect slice of stylish seaside that I'm no doubt going to abide by this summer. On a final note, make sure you check out Glossybox for men, which has recently become my beauty survival kit after those nights that aren't too accomodating to you the next day...! The boxes include a teaser of essentials to groom us into suave ones at once!
