A.P.C. was born out of opposing the ostentatious fashion trends of Paris which were incredibly significant at the time as well as the designer's distaste for ill-fitting clothing. Created by Jean Touitou in 1987, A.P.C. is a French clothing brand, authentic and accessible by way of its style, prices and philosophy. While A.P.C. first gained renown for its classic jeans in raw denim, the brand now offers a complete collection of men's and women's clothing and accessories that embodies a simple, casual elegance. Jean Touitou works with his wife, Judith Touitou, artistic director of A.P.C.
