"If only it was summer everyday"


These are just some of A.P.C.'s latest Spring/Summer offerings that I thought I would share. Although admittedly not exceptionally 'fashion forward' as a label, whatever that really means, I always feel that A.P.C. are one of the few brands that consistently provide beautiful everyday clothing.

Their attention to the fit of individual garments and high quality construction sets them far apart from the majority. The pale colour palette throughout the collection, combined with the plain navy blues, reds and slight mustard, have almost become an A.P.C. standard and definitely work wonderfully together. What struck me most about their latest looks was the fact that they all looked readily wearable for most men. These are quite simply great summer outfits, and indeed looks that are easily achievable, yet well measured.

The jumpsuit in the first look may not be for the timid, however I would wear it in a heartbeat if I was given the opportunity. The cut is slim enough not to look like work overalls, and their pairing with the white sneakers and plain striped t-shirt, allows it to look appealing as a casual outfit. I was also fascinated by their full denim look, in that the washes of both the jacket and jeans are very similar, yet far from looking overpowering or contrived, it works as an acceptable summer outfit. In general the slim fitting and decidely casual feeling in the collection makes it appealing, whilst the looks also serve to make it accessible as a vision.

What are your thoughts on the collection?
And how I wish my hair looked like that on the first model.

  2. I like how it's very simple, no bells and whistles. I mean I love crazy out of the box clothing, but this is refreshing after all the bright colors and insane clothing after the spring fashion shows.

  5. I really like the collection. Very clean and sharp, yet casual at the same time. Lovely!

    The model does have great hair, but you know what? So do you! :D

  6. Ooh, I love #5. I like the use of whites in it but they add little pops of color with the brown moccasins and the pink tie. Lovely!

    Sadly, I can never purchase an APC piece (at least not at full price) and I badly want to since all of their pieces are so nice! I love their color palette, too.

  9. I adore the third and seventh pictures - they're casual but still beautiful! Seriously, all of these are so lovely. Very simple, but everything works together perfectly.

    And don't ever change your hair, it's just lovely, dear.

  11. So fresh and clean--perfect for summer!

    I'm rather intrigued by the pairing of the khaki walking short and the brown loafers. It looks so right but I would've never thought of it.

  14. God, their models are so hot... I love that summer suit. But how bourgeois would you look?

    For some reason, I always end up staring at the APC website and fall in love with everything. But then when I come back a week later, I feel ambivalent.

  15. I love the collection. I will definitely like to see more boys wearing something like in the 6th picture with a cardigan and shorts. They're all wearable and definitely cool and casual summer outfits.

  23. If I were a male, these would be the looks I would pull. In fact, I would wear them myself with just a couple adjusments.

  27. How I wish men dressed like this in the summer, rather than in sports shorts and dirty vests (or worse, topless fat men!), I especially like the first one with the jumpsuit, it should be weird but it works! Char x
