When impossibly cool French label A.P.C. joined forces with American heritage brand Carhartt, we knew the result would be covetable. This is not your run of the mill collaborating scheme to cash in on two beloved brands. In fact, A.P.C.’s Jean Touitou and Carhartt’s Arnaud Faeh prefer to be described as “Boat Mates.” Adorable nomenclature or not, the result is a collection of outerwear befitting of the high seas or dry land. A.P.C. + Carhartt is a glorious anomaly of two friends with excellent brands designing excellent clothes for the sheer fun of it.
Now in their third installation, it appears as though A.P.C. + Carhartt is in it for the long haul, so long as the two charismatic captains continue to “have fun.”
