Sensing the heaviness of the times, Florentin Glamarek and Kevin Nompix felt that their genderless label AgonLab’s spring collection should feel like a break from reality, even the space of their shows.

For those looking to delve into the digital realm, the pair continues to build on last season’s Metaverse Forest. Starting Wednesday, they’ll take over a section of Galleries Lafayette’s website, bring their selection of spring 2023 designs to life, as well as release virtual try-on filters on Instagram.
