agnès b. Captures Paris for Spring/Summer 2018

By Erik Martiny

October 11, 2017

The spring/summer 2018 agnès b. line-up just kept flowing down the catwalk, amounting in the end to an impressive 47 different looks. The range and variety of outfits was equally eye-opening. There was a piece for every conceivable walk of life, every kind of woman, from the broad pierrot-de-la-lune collars of the dreamy-eyed girl to the elegant working woman’s suit. There were outfits for the discreetly beautiful demure girl, the extravagantly colorful Caribbean beauty, the spikey fishnet rebel, and the gold-swathed otherworldly fairy. And as always, there wasn’t a single set that wasn’t entirely wearable, despite some fine experimental touches.

A number of garments incorporated printed photographs the designer herself took in Paris. While the shots selected were mostly of standard tourist sites like the Eiffel Tower, the radically decentered framing lent the dresses an appealingly arresting edge. The tourist sites pictured tended to be low down the dress, offering vast tracts of poetic blue sky. For those with a taste for less figurative designs, there were also dresses that made you feel you were in an animated exhibition of wearable abstract paintings.

The show-stopper came when a blonde model appeared in an elf-like cape and hood interwoven with strands of the most delicate gold patterning.
