Paris, France – Agnes B. opens her latest outing with a nicely tight suit with trousers cut inches above the ankles and a blazer with no visible button. The trousers have a small split on the out seams. The look is finished with a white very strap and nearly feminine sandals. From these elements we would have the keys to appreciating the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Youth is what the house is looking for here. And they are finding it and giving it in full dosages.
Moments into the show we find 3 dancers with braids and shaven sides dancing in denim. Black soiled leather shoes with short-cropped simple jackets in denim and chinos take us into the next phase. From there we have a jumpsuit in blue indigo. This indigo goes on to pepper the collection in pieces such as pants and loose fitting button down shirts.
Prints are found inside of the trench coat. It is actually part of an ensemble thanks to the short-cropped trousers. Knits make their appearance into the collection with cardigans and t-shirts. Color is also featured with the windbreaker in multiple colors.
Yellow is a nice addition into the colors. In several tones, it composed a look of shorts, a t-shirt and a shirt. We find it again with a broken glass prints on the shirts. As the show heads to it end, we see black and red come into the collection. They look best in the short-cropped street jackets and the tight jeans with elastin.
