“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.
