The new Louis W. for A.P.C. collection draws inspiration from France's May 1968 riots when the youth sought to claim their right to expression through asserting their individuality. Thus, the FW16 delivery explores the world of rebellion, called "Soixante Huit," in turn referencing the late '60s, early '70s clothing worn by teenage demonstrators.
Jackets have then been made from various types of shearling, with a retro color palette, while the accompanying knitwear reflects vintage military styles with “round” V-neck or zipped roll neck ribbed sweaters. The tops in turn come optioned in burgundy, pale grey-melange or navy.
Standouts from the Louis W. for A.P.C. FW16 collection include the René jacket that is a classic bombardier jacket in very thick shearling, the Emmanuel jacket done up in a beige suede, aviator shape with a tone-on-tone shearling collar, and the Ferris bomber, which comes in a graphic version with dark sheepskin and a grey print on top.
