French fashion designer Agnès b.

21 Mar

Agnes b is a French fashion designer. She was born in Versailles, few miles far from Paris, in 1941. She studied at “Écoles des Beaux Arts”, one of the most prestigious faculties of Art in France. Before being the owner of the chain of Agnes b. shops (all over the world) she worked as a young editor at the very famous magazine ELLE.

 

She opened her own boutique in Paris in 1975. She has been discovered by a lot of famous designer, because all her clothes were created in black and white. Nowadays, Agnes b. has boutiques all over the world, including London, Shanghai, New York City (Soho), Italy, and even Morocco.

 

Agnes b. (in her latest spring collection showed at the Paris Fashion Week) brings back the bright colours for women, and dark colours for men. A generous mix between old and new, what was the trend few years ago, and what is the new one. Agnes b. latest fall collection, is a mix between the old and the new, the strong black and the light white. “A simple black dress, with a printed bag”… “A grey skirt with a bright brown belt”… is enough for the new 2011 spring season.

 

However, Agnes b. is a quite expensive brand, so let’s find in our closet, and cheaper shops colours and tastes that matches what we’ve liked in this new Agnes b. collection.
