The starting point of this interaction with Jessica Ogden is the use of A.P.C.'s surplus fabrics dating from COVID. Just like Jean Touitou, she likes to give fabrics a second life to avoid waste (she upcycles A.P.C.'s leftover fabrics as quilts for numerous years).
For this collection, Jessica was inspired by her own label's history. Her signature pieces like quilted denim, patchwork plaid, and smock details add texture to the ready-made fabrics. She also chose an ease to the shapes with 80’s cut jeans, oversized tops, mild calf skirts, and long shirts. Her obsession with sailor uniforms also makes an appearance.
A pineapple brings a color splash to t-shirts and sweatshirts. A subtle wink to the Ocho Rios area in Jamaica, where she moved recently.
Finally, Jessica developed a logo for the Interaction featuring a needle and thread. It tells the personal story of Jean and Jessica’s mutual love of sewing, as if history could be written with the logo itself.
