A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou and designer Vanessa Seward have long been fans of one another, so a collaboration between the two came as a natural progression. The 19-piece capsule collection of clothes, shoes and accessories merged Seward’s prim glamour with the French contemporary label’s trademark clean lines. “We introduced these couture fabrics, and the shapes are very A.P.C.,” she said. “Maybe the waists are a bit higher or the shoulder is a bit smaller, but it really respects A.P.C.’s spirit. It’s a bit like democratic couture.” A collarless shirtdress came in a feather-light burnished gold lamé, while metallic brocades in light gold or silvery blue were used for a miniskirt, a dress and a short playsuit that looked like a dress from the back. Dresses and shirts in dainty floral print, on a background of navy or lipstick red, rounded off the wearable and appealing collection.
