The winter Madras collection is out. The styling is terribly frumpy but there are some nice individual pieces...

^ I see a lot of floral and grandma-inspired sweaters/pull-overs *shudder* I just don't know what to think about this collection

The Madras website is so not user-friendly, gives me a headache. I think A.P.C has lost their touch... A few pieces in the madras collection have potential though.

Agreed on the website, it's awful!

I always find the shape of their tunic tops and dresses very adorable, but the prints are a bit much. The plaid one is kinda cute, but the flowery, liberty print is way too precious in those shapes for me.

so sorry to hear that ...


but one question, though : have you taken yr shoes before winter to a shoe repairer ?
you can do it before autumn and winter (i'm doing it 2 weeks after buying a new pair of shoes). go to a shoe repairer to remake the sole ! prefer a plastic sole ! it prevents from these kind of problems !

Apc jeans are great for an entry level designer jean. The fall 09 mens and womens collection look great. I think the jackets were very well done.
Best,
Mauro

I agree, I don't particularly like the women's spring collection in general, although I did end up purchasing this shirt and parka.






credit for both: lagarconne.com

I love the way they are styled, the model looks so cute (and I want her hair!)

^Part of why I dislike this collection is the styling on the APC website which is dreadful whereas lagarçonne just gets it right!

Great picks Tourist!
