A couple of years after Coco Chanel passed away in 1971, Agnès Troublé launched her agnes b. label of smart/casual daywear in Paris. Since then, the designer has quietly grown her chic, everyday creations into an international brand—despite the label’s lack of advertising. Now 73, Troublé still designs every piece in her 8 annual collections. The designer is also an active cultural broker, using her many boutiques worldwide as a platform to share her artistic inspirations.
Neatly cut from sturdy leather, this agnes b. tote showcases the label's signature clean lines and minimal aesthetic. Fill the ample interior with your daily essentials and even larger items like your tablet/documents. Ideal for the office or in the city, and perfect with everything from tailoring to denim.
Agnes b. is especially popular in Japan. Much of what the young Japanese feel about French brands was in fact shaped by the brand, which made its debut in Japan in 1983 and became an immediate sensation. Today there are some 150 agnes b. outlets throughout Japan, and it is said that 1 out of every 3 Japanese women under 25 owned at least one agnes b. item.
