A.P.C., the go-to brand for refined yet casual French style, have continued their popular animal print theme from last season by releasing this brilliant leopard print T-shirt as part of their new AW12 collection.
l’Atelier de Production et de Création, as they go by on a Sunday, are a Parisian brand started by fashion designer Jean Touitou. Their clothes started life basic, timeless, and sometimes bordering on austere. Today these founding principles remain, with the exception that over time, colours and a wider array of daring prints have found their way onto their designs – this t-shirt being a fine example.
Leopard print can always be tricky to conquer in menswear – it’s bold, eye-catching and instantly draws attention – however the simplicity of this t-Shirt makes it something of a unique garment. Made from stretchy cotton with a simple crew neck, the print is carefully managed with the colours blending together naturally, their still however remains a sort of a vibrancy and allure to this design that makes it so aesthetically pleasing.
All of these factors add up to ensure that this t-Shirt is a very wearable piece which could effortlessly be incorporated into your everyday attire. Pair with some simple dark selvage jeans and white trainers and let the t-shirt do the talking – your outfit will be given a fantastic yet unusual edge which will show off a wild side that even you didn’t know you had.
