Profile

An airy backdrop and natural light create a clean palette for clothing that is chic, simple and sensible. Supremely French in design and spirit, venerable label agnès b. carries mix-and-match pieces of crisp, white button-downs, basic black tees, stiffly pleated skirts and jacket-style cardigans. The classic nature of the pieces makes it easy to pair different looks together, while the few bursts of bright paisley or striped prints make a statement when worn with staples like the tailored skinny black pants. As loud music blares from the speakers above, it’s hard not to get into the French spirit while perusing the displays of literature, art and music that line the walls, each an example of the designer’s love and support of the arts. It’s not unusual to see such items—or special T-shirts screen-printed by up-and-coming designers and artists—go on sale to support a good cause; Citymeals on Wheels and AIDS research are particularly important to Madame B.

Formalwear

Grooms hit up Agnès B. for subtle formalwear. Popular styles for weddings include the two-button Matt jacket ($785) and the Peter pants ($365).
