During Spring 2019, the brand A.P.C began its interactions, the first one with Kid Cudi. The principle is very simple: limited pieces collections created with friends of A.P.C that incorporate their own vision of the brand’s clothes. For Fall 2019, the french couple behind A.P.C, Jean and Judith Tuitou collaborated with their long time friend and colleague, Suzanne Koller. Fashion director of M Le Monde and co-founder of Self Service Magazine, Suzanne Koller is also very renowned for her Instagram feed which shows all of her favourite pieces. For this collection, she imagined 10 pieces named “Obvious Classics’ that reflect her own style and allure: a khaki parka, a grey knit jumper or a blue shirt - Classic essentials to any women's wardrobe. We spoke with Suzanne Koller about her interaction just before the launch on July 15th.
