After international success over the last 7 years with menswear brand Agi & Sam, Sam Cotton showcases his first independent collection, ‘& Sam.’
‘& Sam’ is a brand that is primarily fascinated by the anthropological tendencies of humanity and the evaluation, deconstruction and reconstruction of functional menswear.
Influenced by the work of Yuval Noah Harari and the idea of progressivism, ‘& Sam’ focuses on the improvement of traditional design through scientific, cultural and political development.
Sam Cotton is a Fashion Designer based in London with 10 years of experience, running menswear brand Agi & Sam, consulting and collaborating with brands such as Nike, Lacoste, Topman, Jaeger, Fred Perry and Converse, and working for luxury brands J.W. Anderson, Alexander McQueen and Karl Lagerfeld.
