In Consistence We Trust. A.P.C. AW20

Jean and Judith Touitou presented their autumn-winter 2020 collection as look-book shoot instead of runway – the event was cancelled due to the coronavirus concern. A.P.C. is about product consistence, so don’t expect abrupt newness. However, this season, the styling had changed. The model in look 1 wore a pair of size 35 jeans – Jean’s own size, he said – in which the button and button hole were moved off center to accommodate for the extra fabric. She’s probably more like a 25. Boys got the same oversized treatment. On a back pocket, a white cardboard information label peeked out with washing instructions. Most of the time the jeans were accompanied by a wool sweater, tied as a scarf. Additionally, there were some lovely printed midi-dresses and minis, very thrift-Parisian-chic that rules among the locals. What about the rumour saying that Jean is selling A.P.C. “I don’t want to, I don’t need to,” he said. “I have total freedom, I have a good life. I’m not 14 hours in the studio. No, no. I’m okay.” Thanks God.
