Louis W. for A.P.C. presents Comfort

Info

Directed by Grant Curatola and Louis Levy
Cinematography by Eric K. Yue
Edited by Dean C. Marcial

Words

In addition to the beautiful garments, another highlight of A.P.C.'s Louis W. project is the promotion. Each season a unique and interesting film has been created featuring items from the latest collection. The Fall-Winter '15 narrative, starring Sasha Frolova, Zaga Skerletovic and Bruno Dicorcia, was written and directed by Grant Curatola and Louis Levy. Entitled Comfort, it mixes influences from Single White Female and Fatal Attraction with a more lighthearted love between the two main characters, reminiscent of Truffaut’s Jules and Jim.

Words

Louis W.'s Spring-Summer collection features a little more colour than we're used to, and while still sparse, it's a nice addition to the premium outerwear line. Mixing a variety of fabrics and introducing some subtle changes, the pieces continue to evolve and add an elevated aspect to the overall A.P.C. offering.

Directed by Grant Curatola and Louis Levy, written by the latter, and styled by Anthony Unwin, the latest short film to accompany the Louis W. for A.P.C. collection takes inspiration from Jean-Pierre Léaud's audition for Truffaut’s The 400 Blows. Succinct yet highly impactful, the film introduces Bruno Di Corcia, while showcasing the Fall-Winter '14 offering.

I'll be honest, when the Louis W. line from A.P.C. started showing up, I wasn't exactly sure what the deal was. Who was Louis W.? Why were the jackets so expensive? Well, it turned out the former was an eight-year employee of the A.P.C. design team, and the latter was because they're leather jackets, and leather jackets – good ones – are almost always expensive. While I can't ever really imagine myself in a traditional leather piece, I am a fan of the classic suede bomber style, and appreciate concise, well executed collections. I also like the family feel Jean has created in letting this collaboration come to light, and allowing a new voice to shine from within his company.

This spring, A.P.C. continue to let their head menswear designer, Louis W., explore his own luxury outerwear direction within the brand's offering. The slimmed down Ferris Jacket is available in two colour options, and the fit and feel of the suede bomber are very impressive in person.

Words

Featuring clean details, a classic cut and deerskin suede, this bomber fits perfectly into the A.P.C. collection. The small range of jackets created by Louis W. come with a higher price point, but the premium materials and simplicity of the pieces work well in tandem to create a great looking take on the iconic bomber style.
