99% of the 'French' aspect of this comes purely because A.P.C is a French brand and lingerie sounds and it is from the French. About two weeks ago I stepped into the Pull & Bear in Amsterdam about half a year after their opening to try to avoid the mass and tourists - which is absolutely inevitable in Amsterdam especially the Kalverstraat - without a mission and bumped into a series of striped tees in all different color combinations; black/white, white/black, light grey/white, dark blue/white etc. That's when I got the french feels. Pair a breton stripe with a simple ankle hugging skinny jean or cigarette trousers, hacienda shoes, a red lip and a hat and you're done.
And as cliche and over-done it sounds, the je ne sais qoui fashion maybe an attitude really has something magical to it and every non-french-girl is envious that only the French girls, not to forget the men, can pull of. It can make the most put together look seem blasé. A.P.C. is so kind to share this magical feeling with us and to helps us adopt Emmanuelle Alt's wardrobe rather than a Shrek around 7AM on an ordinary day. I'm all in, Merci Beaucoup ! :)
