a.p.c. madras

A.P.C. Madras 08

a.p.c.'s madras line is up on the euro website and i must say, i like it more than the regular spring line! there was only one thing i would consider buying from the normal spring line, but i'm finding more lust-worthy items in the jessica ogden designed madras collection for this summer. i also liked the site layout- impossible to capture head to toe looks, but i like the jumbo-sized pictures. much better to show the detail. here are some of my picks.

this belt reminds me of the one balenciaga did a few seasons ago, but i love its laid-back look in brown.

i think this is a sweet summer look thrown over a bikini- i could substitute the sandals for my k.jacques gladiators.

this is such a sweet bikini! i love the plaid and the bandeau style top. those navy sunglasses are awesome too.

ever since my lightweight denim isabel marant dress, i've had a bit of a liking for lightweight denim and chambray. this dress has some cool details and again those awesome navy sunglasses!

i love this button up paired with the denim mini- easy spring/summer style when the weather's not warm enough for short sleeves.

oh I loved this collection! Thanks for sharing. And is it just me, or is it slightly cheaper? oh I am just dying for a flower print top or dress!

I think the madras line is always cheaper than the main line. Works for me! I'm dying for a floral print dress or top too- I'm thinking chiffon but cotton might be more practical ;)

it's so strange because when i was at the apc shop last month there were several madras pieces, and they definitely didn't look as good as this! everything was quite heavy and somewhat dour of hue. hmmm.

i am loving this collection, though (especially the more affordable prices).

I love this collection too! It's frustrating that the stores and the website get different pieces...

erica: the madras collection in the apc shop now is from their first ever winter madras collection. i was confused too, and inquired about that a couple of months ago!
