For Winter 2018, agnès b. urges men to dare: “dare Sirs!” does she write happily… dare to be yourself, dare to wear what you want and mix very simple, slightly raw garments, with more “sophisticated” ones… dare to be authentic and faithful to your values, as she is herself since her beginnings. Faithful to the simplicity which she praises and which is present in this collection, simplicity at first sight only because, as usual, it is details, perfection of the shape and the very careful choice of fabrics which make the designs drawn by agnès b. timeless!
… assert yourselves and pick a full jersey outfit: coat, jacket, pants, shirt or T-shirt, with no sacrifice to style: clothes are flexible and easy to wear, keeping a couture style.
agnès b. continues to work with fabrics that are made in France. Fabrics that she likes so much, such as the kabik that retains warmth, windbreakers and also warm overcoats! High- waisted and wide-leg cotton trousers, combine perfectly with cable stitch or wool pullovers with cotton elbow pads from Royal Mer. Caps, berets and pullovers tucked in pants to finish the stylish sailor look.
In May ’68, agnès b. did not content herself with just listening to the radio, instead she took to the streets and participated in the student revolutions. Inspired by this very stimulating atmosphere and by intellectual movements of the time, she associates wide tweed patch pockets jackets with wide collar shirts, for slightly unstructured silhouettes, in a Godard way. Geometrical fabric coats and woolly aspect jackets are mixed with a delicate color-range of corduroy pants in blue, green and burnt orange.
Looks inspired by The Last Waltz from Martin Scorsese or Bob Dylan and total 70s looks, with bell-bottom trousers, tie-print pattern on short velvet jacket and wide collar shirt inspired finish off the 70s theme. High buttoned 4 button jackets, with patch pockets are a nod to The Animals, a group that agnès likes very much.
The smart Parisian dandy is not forgotten and will find perfect work suits, high-waisted pants, short flight jackets and exclusive print pattern shirts, to stand out!
