French fashion label agnès b. will be opening a fall residency at The Shop at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, NY on September 14 during New York Fashion Week. The residency, set to last until December 19, will feature items from the designer’s fall 2016 men’s, women’s, accessories and Voyage collections. A special collection of items from textile designer Electra Eggleston for agnès b. will also debut during the fall residency.

In honor of the fall residency, agnès b. was asked to curate the hotel’s ongoing art wall installation. For the project, she chose Pablo Jomaron, a fifth-year art student at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, to create the installation. Featuring images from Jomaron’s daily life, the project for the Wythe Hotel is titled Ensemble 7 and a limited-edition zine of the same name will be published exclusively for the occasion.

“We’re excited to welcome agnès b. to The Shop for this fall,” said Peter Lawrence, GM of the Wythe Hotel. “In addition to the store, agnès b. will curate a special piece for our lobby wall with the independent publishing house, Red Lebanese. Agnès has a history of interest in, and support of emerging artists, Wythe Hotel’s much more recent efforts in the same vein made this collaboration a really appealing one for us.”
