A.P.C. SS09

It's interesting how if you were describing an outfit from the A.P.C SS09 women's collection to someone (chunky sandals.. thick socks.. mannish jacket.. even a shirt and tie) it would all sound rather dowdy and awkward, but somehow A.P.C manages to infuse it all with their trademark brand of cool, and nearly everything ends up looking impeccable in that very laid back, French sort of way. We love the casual elegance, and overall it just really works... they even came up with a jumpsuit that we don't hate! To boot, it's (relatively) affordable yet still exclusive feeling, and even if you don't want to do the full on slightly androgynous look (which admittedly won't work for everyone, however effortless their models make it look), each collection provides a range of good quality basic pieces with myriad ways to be incorporated into your existing wardrobe.

Men's is good news too:

  1. I dunno, for some reason this collection doesn't really appeal to me as much as their past ones have. I love the pink and yellow women's shorts but everything else just kind of falls flat for me.

  2. this is just lovely, i've wanted a baseball style jacket for a while, all the ones i find in vintage places are either crazy sizing or badly stained and over priced. booo
