^ tourist, i ordered the same parka

does anyone know who styled these last few seasons? they all have a similar awkward vibe that i assume is intentional, kind of anti-fashion. but i think there are a lot of really nice pieces here, all the same.

just imagine camille bidault-waddington wearing any of the clothes, and they make more sense. like the red jumpsuit, i'm sure she would really sex that one up.

Funny you mention Camille Bidault-Waddington, because she is the one who's styled the last several APC collections. I assume she did the styling this season as well.

thx classicalbang i was wondering if it was still her...

i was thinking of this 2007 lookbook...
the way she wears the clothes - they look a lot less gamine and more sophisticated...
which is cool bc it's something i don't usually associate with APC...
i wish she would bring back some of that feeling...

btw it's funny to compare her recent soft-core 'purple haze' candids with this very demure & clunky apc styling...
