Agnes B SS12
For SS12 Agnes B offered an eclectic collection with a Parisian confidence and nonchalance. The show opened with a series of languid pieces that evoked the heat and dustiness of Ancient Rome. The models were swathed in light layers coloured in the hues of the earth; thin kaftans were layered over slouchy trousers or worn alone with leather gladiator sandals. The look was taken furthest on a model with a crown of vines and a statement multi-strand silver necklace.
As the show progressed a transition was made from Roman attire to Parisian street uniform. A new direction was introduced by way of a long-sleeved t-shirt with the print of a street where Shepard Fairey had made his mark with his Obey graphic. Suits strode out with purpose and individual style as a jacket was slung over the shoulder of one model whilst another was draped over its wearer. Trousers were tapered and cut to the ankle allowing a look at brogues in various colours and finishes. Prints featured geometric blocks of colour, swirls of tribal prints and the wavy lines of a Bridget Riley optical illusion. Attention to detail ensured no look was seen twice; from head to toe – the colour of the socks to the shape of the hat – each look had something different to offer.
