A Workwear Collaboration for the Ages

What happens when a classically French brand and a platonically American brand meet? In the case of Carhartt WIP and A.P.C., the result is utilitarian magic. The two brands have collaborated on five collections together since 2011, and the latest just launched today.

Carhartt WIP is the streetwear-friendly offshoot of a company that is best known for clothes meant to be worn on a construction site. The pieces can still be worn for work, but it’s a bit more modern than the original label. A.P.C. on the other hand is a French brand that makes minimalist clothes with Parisian flair. Their collab is similarly wearable. The “C” in the A.P.C. logo becomes a Carhartt logo. The designs largely pull from Carhartt’s classics — such as the beanie — but are made in A.P.C.’s special fabrics.

See some of our favorites from the collab below. Personally, I think the Bonnie skirt combines the best of both brands, and would look really cute with some beat up, worn-in boots.
