Established in France in 1987 by founder Jean Touitou, A.P.C. has since become synonymous with cool, streamlined contemporary styling. Known for its clean lines, simple patterns and slim silhouettes, the brand was born out of a desire to rebel against the era’s decidedly over-the-top designs. Taking the focus back to the wearer—not what was being worn—A.P.C. maintains an air of well-tailored chic, having developed a pared-down aesthetic that progressed sans seasonal it-items. Comprised of staples like striped tees, cozy pullovers and sought-after Selvedge denim, A.P.C remains defiantly untrendy—which is precisely why people continue to love it.
