Ragyard x agnès b. and Electric Retro Spectrum's concert!
It was during a trip to London few months ago that agnès b. discovered this small family brand located in Brick Lane. Ragyard’s creators love to create, travel, discover, explore new cultures through designs and textiles, find inspiration in the people around them. They buy the best vintage pieces that they bring back to life... a unique way to reduce waste and express their creativity! ... so many common points with agnès b. who very quickly decided to offer this small English and family brand its Street shop on 4 rue du Jour!
And on June 21st, from 7 to 9pm, concert of Electric Retro Spectrum (band signed by Born Bad Records and playing on July 6 at the Astral Festival)… for the music festival!

The schooner Tara is in London, focusing on microplastics on the Thames
10 rivers will be studied by the Tara Ocean Foundation to understand the origins on land of plastic pollution in the oceans. Objectives? Where does plastic waste originate? How does it arrive in the Ocean? Where should we concentrate our efforts to stop the flow of this waste? What impacts do plastics have on marine biodiversity? Recent estimates find that 80% of plastic waste found at sea originates on land. The Tara Ocean Foundation has been involved in this research since 2010. Now it is urgent to explore and identify the flux of plastic waste from land to sea in order to stop it. The upcoming Mission Microplastics 2019 — with the CNRS in charge of scientific coordination — will take the schooner Tara through several regions in Europe for 6 months, exploring 10 major European rivers. The Thames is the first river studied by the scientists. Tara will be docked in Sint Katharin’s Marina from the 11th to the 13rd of June 2019.
Flowers, Martin Parr
On the occasion of the Parcours Saint-Germain whose theme for the 2019 edition is La Fleur de l’Art, agnès b. has the pleasure to show works by Martin Parr, an artist she was one of the first to show in her gallery, the galerie du Jour and which photographs are also in her collection.
Among the themes dear to the British photographer are food, tourism, couples scenes… but also flowers…
In 2001, agnès wrote: “It was during 2 to 3 years that Martin Parr showed me this work on flowers. The flowers in life, the “consolation” flowers to make it perhaps more cheerful?” At the time, agnès had even made a small book that will be available in the exhibition!
