After learning about the inspiration behind the Agi and Sam AW 2011 collection, I am hit by nostalgia for 90s television.
The Agi and Sam AW 2011 collection consists of vibrant clothing that can be flashy, but subtle. The brand draws inspiration from popular 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and it certainly shows. The clothing shows perfect reflections of Will's eccentric outfits frequently worn in the earlier seasons of the show--the Agi and Sam AW 2011 collection even has a shirt with his face on it. The colorfully vivid jackets, sweaters, pants and shirts are a nice change from the more refined outfits most are use to.
It's always nice to see designers remembering the classics and taking them as the focal point for inspiration. Retro themes are dominating, but rather than simply replicating the past, the Agi and Sam AW 2011 collection adds a modern twist for a more intriguing, updated look.
