For one last encore, APC have again teamed up with American workwear label Carhartt for a collaboration that mixes the French brands minimal aesthetic with something a bit more rugged. The collection is full of solid staples such as simple tees, hardwearing shirts, warm beanies, mixed up watches and tough coats.
The colour palette reflects the autumnal season with a muted selection of greys, deep blues and blacks combining with the unassuming branding to create items that, although slightly stark in appearance, have the playful nature of both brands at heart. A great example of this would be the Odette watch, which has used the Jimi Hendrix song, “If Six Was Nine” as inspiration to create a timepiece like no other.
As this is the last ever installment of this capsule collection, there is a lot of nostalgia in the choice of products. The classic beanie is left unaltered and the Gabrielle jacket, so often given the APC treatment, comes in perhaps its best guise yet, a clean, single coloured corduroy number in Anthracite grey. We will miss it when it’s gone, but for the time being we can enjoy one collab that really brings the best out of both brands involved. Photos: bythelevel.com
