MAN: Astrid Andersen | Agi & Sam (S/S 13)

A joint initiative between TOPMAN and Fashion East returned to the runway yesterday for the 15th consecutive season as part of the inaugural London Collections: MEN. Having championed the best and brightest new menswear talent on the catwalk since 2005, the MAN team are delighted that British menswear has finally been awarded its own fashion week.

Following Autumn/Winter 2012’s line up of Agi & Sam, Astrid Andersen and Shaun Samson, the panel and Lulu Kennedy  have invited the trio to return and show their S/S 13 collections. Shaun Samson shows on the MAN catwalk for a third time, while Agi & Sam and Astrid Andersen return following a highly successful debut and having previously proved themselves at the Fashion East Menswear Installation.

Designers are selected by a panel of industry experts including Mr Porter’s Sam Lobban, Arena’s Andrew Davis and GQ Style’s Ben Reardon. Mentoring the designers, the panel play a crucial role in fast tracking their brands, helping them onto such schemes as the British Fashion Council’s LONDON show ROOMS in Paris and New York.
