A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou and KICHIZO founder Katsuyuki Yoshida share a mutual respect for each other, and this latest collaboration is a testament to their relationship. Word around town is that the two designers shared ideas in their last meeting at the A.P.C. 25th anniversary party, planting the seed for this current bag collection. For this line, KICHIZO utilized a brand new polyester material on the exterior, improving the durability and aesthetics of each bag. Once the zippers are opened, an original check pattern lining is revealed, creating a cozy environment inside. Official launch is slated for around March from select A.P.C. stores and their online shop.
