Fans will have another reason to visit the French fashion label's one-stop lifestyle concept store this October with the Asia Tour of agnès b. PUNK + Photo Exhibition. The exhibition toured London, Paris, Japan and Singapore as part of the designer's support for art, film and music.
Held at Rue de Marseille, the exhibition documents the zeitgeist of the '70s London punk movement through the lens of renowned photographer Sheila Rock. Agnès has worked closely with Sheila to curate 28 photos from her book PUNK +. Most of the incredible black and white and colour images selected have never been published. Each photograph is a rare moment with the movers, influencers and shakers of punk like The Sex Pistols, Generation X, The Clash, Billy Idol, Chrissie Hynde and many more.
Through this exhibition, you can visualise an era which transformed the world of fashion, music and art. So head on down to Rue de Marseille from 18 October to 15 November where you can enjoy the visually exciting, dramatic and outlandish 1970s punk movement and take a piece of punk home with you.
