A Graffiti Artist Has Tagged the N-Word Onto A.P.C.’s Paris Storefront

A.P.C. designer Jean Touitou may have formally apologized for the comments he made during his menswear presentation in January, which included multiple uses of the N-word, but at least one person is not satisfied with said apology. That would be the anonymous French street artist Kidult, who posted images to his Instagram of tags he apparently did on one of the brand’s Paris storefronts, accompanied by hashtags like #whiteprivilege and #fashionweak. The N-word is sprayed on the front of the store, while a stenciled sign on the side of the store says “Colored Entrance Only.” Kidult has previously tagged stores like Chanel and Louis Vuitton with anti-consumerism messages. We’ve reached out to Kidult and to A.P.C. for their comments and will update this when we hear back.
