JUST B: Having been ingratiated in the New York art scene for decades, Agnès Troublé (better known as agnès b.) will make room for a gallery in her new Howard Street boutique. For the April 1 opening night party, the designer will showcase one piece of work from such artists as Ryan McGinness, Rostarr, Dan Colen, Ryan McGinley, Harmony Korine, José Parlá, Bast and Jonas Mekas. While their art will hang in the 500-square-foot gallery, their customized or one-of-a-kind T-shirts will be sold in the 2,500-square-foot store. (Korine seems to be getting closer to the fashion world, having just had his work featured in Urban Outfitters’ look book.)
Agnès b., who first opened a SoHo store in 1980, is eager to return to the neighborhood. To welcome the locals, underground art films will be screened in the store from time to time. Although the designer owns Galerie du Jour in Paris, the downtown shop will be the only one of her 200-plus stores that will also house a gallery.
