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.

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.

Raf’s reset for SS20



Raf Simons SS20 Christina Fragkou for Dazed

I didn’t see the Raf Simons SS20 show irl, but I watched it on Instagram Live – is that not the same but almost better? Except instead of chatting to your seatmate after the show, you read the reactions of other Raf-heads (and then check Tim Blanks’s review to fill the missing knowledge gaps).

So accordingly, the Raf Simons SS20 show was a resetting, or returning back to basics of sorts. (more…)



Westman Atelier has arrived in the UK



Westman Atelier UK

Here she is! Westman Atelier has landed in the UK at Net-a-Porter.

The one-year-old beauty line from make-up artist Gucci Westman, Westman Atelier already has a cult following stateside for its creamy ‘beauty butter’ bronzers and rosacea-friendly foundation sticks and I think will succeed here too.

Westman’s signature look is healthy skin with a touch of natural-looking colour – the classic less-is-more look, if you will. (more…)
