A collection under the highlights of gentleness… anachronistic? ”Certainly… but I don’t care! Long live gentleness! Those of materials, of light or deep studied colors. A collection aimed at young girls, and at women who know how to keep their style personal and Parisian at the same time…” Agnès B.
Each season, for a few years now, Agnès B. has invited a young designer to present their work during the Agnès B. fashion show. These designs always bear the name of the young designer on a special label. For winter 2018, a young stylist illustrator, Laure-Hélène Vaudier, who presents 6 silhouettes, which pale colors, fluid materials and light forms evoke certain romanticism. First misleading impression… native of St Etienne, rough mining city, the work and the independence are values dear to Laure-Hélène and her models are all appropriated to an active mode life !
Inspirations are diverse: À une Passante, Baudelaire’s poem… a dress floating in the wind while walking … L’amant, Marguerite Duras’s book… the girl with man hat and ball shoes… and l’heure du café.
A nice beginning to the story… the rapper Nekfeu and the designer met, first around music, a common passion, then for a good cause – the Abbé Pierre Foundation and his “Abbé Road” project. For Winter 2018, the artistic dialogue between Agnès B. and Nekfeu continues through a collaboration on clothing… silhouettes inspired by their two worlds and presented during Paris Fashion Week at the Agnès B. Winter 2018 fashion show.
