THE FAMOUS A.P.C. Jeans
“A touch of humour and a bit of disrespect: That’s what a legend needs to survive.” Karl Lagerfeld
This particular pair of A.P.C.s (Atelier de Production et de Création) was more than important for the owner. He had bought them many years ago and vividly the circumstances in Japan with his ‘now partner’. It was the second time they needed major repairing and no efforts had been spared to save them.
The owner embraced the repaired and worn-in-comfort look and turned it into a feature of his signature style. People approached him and asked where he had bought ‘this unique and unusual pair of jeans’. More Jeansrepairs
What is your opinion? How do you make your decision when it comes to repairs of garments? The decision is often closely related to the overall value of a garment which we agree is a sensible approach.
Bearing in mind that the clothes industry today puts enormous pressure on resources by being the second-highest user of water. It heavily pollutes the environment by producing 10% of global carbon emissions. When then fashion brands decide to protect their brands’ exclusivity by filling land mines and burn their overproduced collections, resources seem to be wasted for the sake of nothing.
We would like to encourage you to double-check your clothes before you throw them away, in particular, your old favourites. They can often be repaired, restyled and revamped. Repairs can be turned into new features and inspire your look. Two of our talented tailors have a passion for repairing garments wonderfully. We have seen some astonishing results!
