At Agnès B., No Need To Choose

-------


“It’s my relationship with New York that I am trying to show through the art,” Agnès Troublé said Friday night at her new Soho gallery-slash-boutique. “I wanted to give my friends here an homage for the pleasure we have together.”

Those friends include artists and filmmakers Harmony Korine, Ryan McGinness, Dan Colen, and the late Louise Bourgeois. A carefully curated collection of brightly colored paintings and photographs by Troublé’s friends, set to change monthly, now covers the exposed brick walls of her Howard Street store—the 246th one worldwide. Works of art by the likes of José Parlá, Rostarr, and McGinness are also available in the more wearable form of limited-edition T-shirts, sold exclusively at the boutique.

Troublé, a major collector herself, has had a longstanding love affair with both art (“since 1983 in Paris, we have [had] a little gallery in Marseille”) and fashion. On Friday, the Paris-based designer saw the marriage of her two greatest passions. “It’s my life,” she said of art. “We have been doing this in a way for a long time, but not so visible as here. It’s normal̵2finally.”
