Catherine Deneuve Reimagines Her Most Riveting Characters for A.P.C. Collaboration

START body

A.P.C. enlists the enduringly inspiring French actress Catherine Deneuve for its seventh Interaction–a continuous string of collaborations with labels and figures such as Carhartt, Goop, and Kid Cudi. With her sweeping creative freedom and unlimited access to the Parisian atelier, the actress made note of her most epochal roles in film for design inspiration for a capsule spanning jackets, tops, skirts, scarves, pumps, shoulder bags, and even an exclusive candle. The collection is filled to the brim with chic tailored and whimsically feminine pieces, named after some of Deneuve’s most beloved characters throughout her illustrious career, from Belle de Jour’s Séverine to Le Sauvage‘s Nelly.

Creative Director Jean Touitou has been neighbors with the iconic star for about 15 years now. Through their mutual appreciation for fine fabrics and pristine cuts, the collaboration practically fell into their laps rather serendipitously. After recalling the substantial amount of time spent in Yves Saint Laurent’s atelier through personal projects and working together for the 1967 film Belle de Jour, Deneuve was able to properly and specifically articulate what she wanted, even without any technical design experience. Paying homage to the vision of her late, great friend, the collection’s midnight Grain de Poudre suit utilized the same fabrics as YSL’s groundbreaking Le Smoking suit. Tap into the thick roster of ever-stylish and Parisian chic characters from Deneuve’s past films with the Séverine blouse, the Nelly skirt, or the Marianne shoulder bag.

The A.P.C. x Catherine Deneuve collaboration is now available online.
