The images of Les Drolesses explore iconic pieces by agnès b. that helped make the brand the well-known label it is today.

In 2016, I purchased these two portraits,
overwhelmed by their presence and their famous

Agnès’ childhood is explored in the displayed images along with her over 40 years of love for photography and her relationship to art.

“My father Ado Troublé who had three daughters in four
years, would sometimes say to us ‘come my drolesses’.
That’s why my two ‘models’, my two friends from the
lockdown of Spring 2020 are called that…..
they kept me company, inspired me, and made me happy.”
