A.P.C. expands its collection around quilting

For eight years now, A.P.C. has been collaborating with Jessica Ogden to make quilts (patchwork blankets), cushions and comforters from scraps of the label’s fabrics. This time, the designer goes back to basics and unveils a collection entirely designed with the “zig-zag” technique, unveiled in a series of photographs taken in Haute-Corse.

For this twentieth linen collection with A.P.C. (abbreviated initials Atelier de Production et de Création), Jamaican-born designer Jessica Ogden unveils a selection of quilts, cushions and quilts, made using the historic “zig-zag” technique, resembling the herringbone pattern. Jean Touitou, founder and artistic director of the French label, then entrusted her with fabric scraps destined to be thrown away so that the designer could give them a second wind. A way for the designer to offer a collection of household linen while using an eco-responsible approach thanks to upcycling.


For this new range, A.P.C. and Jessica Ogden unveil a selection of blankets, cushions and comforters adorned with abundant colours and patterns. Each of the songs was named by the creator behind the label in reference to the characters mentioned in the songs of Lou Reed and the band Velvet Underground, such as Holly, Sugar Plum Fairy or Jackie. To sublimate this collection of household linen, it is the Venezuelan photographer based in Paris Alfredo Piola who has captured each of the pieces, honored in the breathtaking landscapes of Haute-Corse.
