A brand that tries, and succeeds, in creating something for everyone, each drop from A.P.C. is as comprehensive as the last, from their cult raw denim to an ever growing selection of highly revered outerwear.
Appropriating from disparate areas of design with complete confidence, the collection touches on classic athletic design, outdoor apparel, rugged workwear and traditional tailoring, reinventing classic designs in new materials, cuts and constructions.
An Americana classic, the Varsity Jacket has been something of a highlight of recent seasons and for AW14, A.P.C. certainly do not disappoint, with their new navy iteration cut from supremely soft wool and supple leather, finished off with a selection of knowing detailing.
The Parisan fashion masterminds tailoring is something of a dark horse, but is an arena in which they cannot be touched, incorporating authentic detailing across wholly contemporary silhouettes with unmatched confidence.
The second instalment from the collection takes a more classic approach than its usual sports-infused pieces, replacing collegiate and varsity styles with traditional macs and outdoor-ready outerwear such as the rugged Fur Collar Bomber Jacket.
This inspired use of outdoor silhouettes and fabrics is glaringly apparent with plaid shirting constructed from flannel and heavy Merino cable knits mixing two true outdoor influences; Americana Workwear and Naval Maritime clothing.
The drop is rounded off with a selection of the brand’s staple denim cuts as well as some considered accessories in the form of scarves and pendant necklaces.
