When I was little I would read everything I could find about Versailles: Saint Simon's Memoires, texts written by the curators. I dreamt of becoming a museum curator.

Since the very beginning, agnès b. has always designed clothes that never go out of fashion, compiling her own stylistic vocabulary from a combination of classic codes and street trends. The snap cardigan, overalls, dungarees, petticoat, striped t-shirt, perfecto, sweatshirt, pinafore dress… so many essential items that can be adapted to any style suit different generations. With the varied colour schemes, tone on tone, deep black, pinks that veer towards reds, motifs inspired by nature but also street art or references to period garments, the aestheticism of agnès b. is rich and diverse.
