A.P.C. x Sacai

A.P.C. x Sacai

For A.P.C.'s Interaction #9 they turn to Chitose Abe's innovative and experimental brand, Sacai.


As of spring 2019, A.P.C. has invited friends of the brand to collaborate on small collections on a regular basis. With previous Interactions featuring the likes of Kid Cudi, Brain Dead, JJJJound, Carhartt WIP and Goop, their next iteration sees A.P.C. look to Chitose Abe’s innovative and experimental brand, Sacai. The Japanese brand and A.P.C. have teamed up for a unisex collection that focuses on uniting the iconic materials of each brand – denim and nylon – in order to bring a new approach to A.P.C.’s star clothing: jeans, the denim jacket, the denim dress and even the denim tote bag. Similarly, for jersey, Sacai sparked a small revolution by adding complexity to classic A.P.C. tees and sweatshirts with zipper effects and a choice of very heavyweight materials.

Sign up to be the first to hear when the collection drops at Incu.

This Interaction is a precise illustration of how A.P.C. and Sacai came together, inter- weaving diverse elements of language to achieve a sort of crossbreed that represents the style of our two brands. These pieces are unusual for us, as they push the limits of what we might call ‘wearability’ as far as possible. They are the fruit of a long process of creative deconstruction and reconstruction. We got enormous pleasure from seeing this clothing being taken apart and redesigned. And to quote Maurice Blanchot, referring to the novel Destroy, She Said by Marguerite Duras: ‘Destroy. How this rings: softly, tenderly, absolutely.’ (Maurice Blanchot, Friendship, 1971). This is exactly what we felt when we achieved this work.
