The eponymously designed agnès b. hit the Paris runway with a blend of suits and loungy sportswear, inflected with bold patterns and executed in a range of relaxed, yet sharp, cuts.
Kicking off the show, a range of tailoring staples — dress trousers, double-breasted overcoats — were juxtaposed with youthful hoodies, bomber jackets and baseball caps, all bearing bright prints and patterns. Cornerstones of French crept into later looks, like berets, slim scarves and turtlenecks as the collection shifted from street gear to full-on tailoring, subverted with contemporary items like graphic T-shirts and leather pants. Muted tones prevailed throughout, offset by splashes of saturated blues and the occasional orange, as the collection shifted again, adding in studded leather jackets, collarless overshirts, bolo ties and even a Japanese yukata.
