A.P.C. does recognise a woman’s need for a great bag. A high quality, functional bag that compliments the wearer, rather than dominating. Last year Jean Touitou started to buy skins before they reached the tannery (his father traded in skins so the knowledge is inherent). In this way he can work with the tannery just like A.P.C. works with milliners on fabrics. Each skin is treated specific to A.P.C. needs. The result is an array of leathers that fit with the pared down, accessible and highly desirable bags.
