Agyness Deyn's Fashion Evolution
2007 brought us Juno, Britney Spears's shaven head and the last ever Harry Potter book. Oh and a model named Agyness Deyn. The industry went wild for her angry androgynous look - but it wasn't just about the spiky blonde locks and strong jaw. Aggy also gives dead good style (read in the Aggy accent). She became a byword for all things cool in the mid-noughties.
After years of ear-marking pictures of Aggy's perfectly plaid looks, she has moved into womenswear with a contemporary collection called 'Title A' which is sold exclusively on Net-A-Porter. The vibe is exactly what we'd expect from Agyness, as it features white tees, menswear inspired pieces and fierce overcoats. In the lookbook the pieces are paired with a dishevelled top knot and brogues. Natch.
Agyness said to Grazia about the collection: "Other women were also craving the same simplicity, eclectic basics and something a bit more irreverent." Her favourite piece from the collection is the Pillar skirt. She told us: "It's kind of mid-calf, quite like an Orthodox Jew kind of look - I love the way different people, religions and countries dress - with that length and then split up really high st the back, it's also a little sexy, so there's balance."
It's a move that has been long coming - in 2012 the model went from the catwalk to the studio when she dipped her toes into the designing world with her collection for Dr. Martens. So does she get any designing tips from her pals? Last year Henry Holland (her BFF 4EVA) told us: 'No, I don’t give her any tips.' As for her Doc Martins collaboration he said: 'She’s worn Docs since I can remember, that’s her thing. It’s not like she’s just putting her name to something. She does genuinely work on it and design them. You can always tell when people who do those kind of collaborations are passionate.'
