Debbie Harry is the muse for the womenswear of A.P.C’s Pre-Spring collection, her essence conveyed through dresses of denim and black wool. The small Tina jacket and Poppy miniskirt (which snaps closed in the front) modernise a typical 1970s silhouette. Meanwhile, for the menswear, Lou Reed was the reference point as a short faux leather jacket, jeans in stonewashed black denim and a long trench coat in water-repellent cotton gabardine deliver a new take on the Velvet Underground frontman’s signature look.
