Since opening her first shop in Paris in 1975, agnes b. has been dedicated to creating timeless designs. Snap cardigans, striped T-shirts, strapless dresses, mini skirts, leather pants--her unforgettable pieces mix classical influences with street style.

Presenting design sketches, press clippings, photographs byagnes b., and the work of photographers such as Peter Lindbergh, Dominique Issermann, Ellen von Unwerth, Bruce Weber, Gilles Bensimon and Jean-Baptiste Mondino, agnes b.: l'histoire explores the far-reaching influence of the brand, celebrating the complexity and creativity of the agnes b. universe.
