The boutique – formerly a butcher shop – housed her debut fashion collection of restyled, cut and dyed workers’ uniforms and striped rugby shirts.

Nowadays, Agnès B produces simple and chic fashion collections that are shown privately off-schedule at the Paris ready-to-wear shows.

The Agnès B signature style is usually best captured in the precise Tailoring of a crisp white shirt and the lasting luxury of a black wool jumper.

In 1980 Agnès B opened her first US boutique in Soho, New York where she showed her fashion collections for women, men and children.

In 1987, she launched her own perfume,”Le B,” a skincare and cosmetics range and a maternity fashion collection.

She now also has shops in London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Tokyo and more locations opening worldwide.
