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