Agnès B

SOFT ROCK
Paris:
If Agnès Troublé’s recent Men’s collection was a touch unfocused, at least it offered something for everyone. Her strongest pieces were rockabilly style velvet blazers and Man-in-Black suits paired with western bow ties, while a full complement of suits looked solid. A couple of schoolboy ensembles – complete with knee socks – kicked off the show, and vied for attention with a few soft, easy Beatnik looks in earth tones. Her most innovative moments came courtesy of prints, like ultra bright Pop Art digital camo prints or oversized florals on a techno-grid background. A number of cheeky, punk-schoolboy accessories, like an Alfred E. Newman safety pin earring, added humor and depth to otherwise basic looks. Overall, the show was a solid, if unspectacular parade of the well-tailored hep cat pieces Ms. Troublé has staked her long career on.  —Andrew Luecke
