A true lover of people rather than fashion, she neither shops nor attends catwalk shows, choosing instead to find inspiration in ‘people watching’, a trait she describes as very French. From her popular snap cardigan to her press-studded cotton jackets there’s something resolutely personal in agnes b. designs. She’ll remake a piece from a past season if a customer requests it, reiterating her belief that people are more important than the clothes.
With over 118 boutiques around the world, agnes b.’s business has grown without advertising. Her collections include clothes and accessories for all – maternity, babies and teenagers included. She is also a photographer, film producer and avid art collector. With two art galleries, a modern art magazine and a cinema production company of her own, agnes b. has got her finger on the pulse of the creative world.
