In 1994, French fashion label agns b.designed by Agns Troublpartnered with artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres for their now-iconic Nobody Owns Me graphic T-shirt. Since, the brand has collaborated with more than 60 artists over the yearsworking directly with the creator (or estate) to develop equally compelling apparel. Troubl’s interest in the arts extends well beyond this. The agns b. store in SoHo, NYC regularly plays host to gallery openings, as do the brand’s shops in Paris and Hong Kong. To celebrate their 40th anniversary this year and such a rich commitment to the arts, agns b. is re-issuing 24 limited edition artist T-shirts from their archiveand the results are certainly better than your average graphic tee. Varying across evocative visuals from the likes of Harmony Korine and Jean-Michel Basquiat to text collages from Dash Snow and even Gilbert & George, there’s a diversity to the soft, cotton jersey collection. Other favorites include work by Futura, A-One (both of whom were shown at Troubl’s Galerie du Jour in Paris, back in 1984) and even Kenneth Anger.
The limited edition agns b. artist T-shirts are available online for $95 each.
