Suzanne Koller x A.P.C



APC X Suzanne Koller

“She wanted the parka to be the colour of her shampoo bottle. So she came in with the shampoo and said: ‘This is the khaki.’”
A.P.C’s Judith Touitou, F.T (paywall)

This week sees the release of Suzanne Koller x A.P.C, a capsule collection of the kind of specificity that’s sure to fly with hardcore A.P.C loyalists. Think a tan wool-cashmere poncho, chunky grey sweater, navy wool-flannel evening djellaba.

You might have thought there were enough ‘perfect’ sweaters, ‘crisp’ shirts and straight leg camel pants in the world but clearly that’s not the case. What I think works here is that Koller (Self Service magazine co-founder and fashion director of M le Monde) and A.P.C are long term collaborators, so there’s a real connection and mutual understanding. And a genuine obsession for hardworking wardrobe perennials.

The cut and fabrications of these twelve pieces look pretty spot on. The only thing I’m wary of is the knitwear (I’ve had unsatisfactory experiences with A.P.C knits in the past), but I’m all for these pants and boots.

Wardrobe NYC has been going for a few months now. The premise is a series of capsule wardrobe ‘packs’; you buy four or eight pieces at a time and the styling is as classic and cool as it gets, so you’re not going to get fashion fatigue with them! (more…)



Gentlewoman style: introducing Gerbase



Gerbase by Paula Gerbase

I think I first read about Paula Gerbase’s own name brand in The Gentlewoman. Known for her womenswear line, 1205, as well as being the creative director of John Lobb, her style is certainly very gentlewomanly.

The new line, Gerbase launches imminently and consists of layerable tissue-thin knits, tailoring and fine jewellery (more…)



Loafers update



how to wear loafers

A quick update of two new loafers on my radar.

These snake print Pierre Hardy ‘Hardy’ loafers (below) are from the winter collection, so not out for a while. A shame as I love loafers in summer and I’m a bit bored of my Bass Weejuns.

But to compensate are these newBarnard’ loafers from Horatio London (below). This brand is relaunching (I’ve not heard of them before) and these are Goodyear Welted and made in Italy. Goodyear Welted is a superior construction method that allows your soles to be easily replaced so your shoes last longer. I love this classic almond toe. I’ve been given a 25% discount code (enter the code ‘WELCOME’, until 10th July), which makes them about £145, with delivery middle of July from Horatio London.
