London: The London duo collection began with a visit to Agi’s family home in Yorkshire where his mother had some drawings from a clothing range he had designed at the age of four. Its name was ‘The Coolman Collection’. The designers tore apart coats and jackets. They were given to schoolchildren who were asked to put the pieces back together – just like a jigsaw.  The exploded coats and jackets came in different styles and shapes – Crombie coats, flight parkas, ski jackets and denim truckers. “We always wanted to have fun with clothes, we wanted to look at how children see clothes, and how they possibly could change our perceptions of why clothes are made the way they are” said the designers before the show. Prints came in bright primary colors on relaxed trousers and outerwear. The knitwear – a collaboration with JAEGER – were made of coloured panels of fine wool patched over each other. Bright patches were found on tailored coats, trousers and blazers. I am sure they had as much fun as we did. – Diego Sanchez
