I’ve spent a good few years fawning over AMI Paris’s menswear, so it’s great to see the fully realised womenswear come to pass. This sort of ‘vetements‘ offering is what the French do really well. The perfect trouser, blazer, sweater etc to create your basic ‘garconne‘ wardrobe to personalise as you see fit. Watch out A.P.C!
Of particular interest to me is the outerwear. This shearling-trimmed wool aviator jacket* has really nice proportions and fabrics. I also like the heavyweight lumberjack shirt-jacket* and the boxy sweats. I find clean-cut hoodies in thick, weighty fabrics like this are hard to come by in womenswear. And instead of those chunky loafers above, I would be inclined to wear the white high-tops with everything.

Aimé is a bit of a local secret in Notting Hill; the go-to destination for the likes of A.P.C and Isabel Marant for the yummy mummies of the late 90s before the rest of the world Westbourne Grove caught up. Now the Parisian garconne look is a global style trope and Aimé wants to design the uniform. (more…)
“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. (more…)
