Graffiti Artist ‘JonOne’ Creates Candy Crush Collection for Fashion Designer Agnès b.

AGNÈS B’S SWEET ART: Agnès b.’s spring collection borrows from Candy Crush, but her label’s version features artwork by that name from the graffiti artist John “JonOne” Perello.
Unlike the rabidly popular smartphone game, the artist’s “Candy Crush” collection will include limited-run apparel and accessories for women and men. Known professionally as “JonOne,” the American-born artist got to know the designer after moving to Paris in the Eighties. After showing his work at her Galerie du Jour in Paris in 1989, Perello showed his work in two group shows at the gallery before having his first solo show “Fireworks” in 2015. His “Candy Crush” art was produced for the solo show in 2015.
That was a big year for Perello. After being commissioned for a large-scale work that is displayed in the French National Assembly in Paris in 2015, Perello’s work was reproduced as a French postage stamp. The American-born artist was awarded the Ordre national de la Légion d’honneur that same year.
In honor of the Candy Crush collection, Perello is creating three large canvases for its launch at agnès b.’s downtown New York store. Set to open on April 3, the exhibition will also feature the work of artists from The 156

Agnès b. Creates Postage Stamps to Benefit the French Red Cross

AGNÈS B. POSTS: As part of her company’s ongoing humanitarian efforts, French designer agnès b. has designed a handful of French postage stamps to benefit the French Red Cross. Inspired by the organization’s signature emblem, she has created a booklet of five that will sell for $ 5.87 in post offices across France and in agnès b. boutiques there as well. In response, La Poste will donate to the French Red Cross $ 2.17 (based on current exchange rates) for each packet sold. The designer’s stamps, which carry such sayings as “The Red Cross was made from love and courage” and “Together with the Red Cross” are available through August in post offices and agnès b. boutiques across France.
Agnès b.’s involvement was not in response to the Red Cross’ involvement in the European migrant crisis, a company spokesman said Monday.
Deciding on “simple, airy, and pure forms that are a little bit like a child’s drawings,” the Paris-based designer said she “tried to find something, which is a metaphor of my love for the Red Cross, by inspiring me of the actions in which I had the privilege to be associated with….There is at first a heart, which I created during the siege
