A.P.C founder blogs

touitou.jpgDespite being a regular visitor to Honeyee.com, I only just noticed their blog the other day. They’ve roped in several noted names, such as Kaws, Visvim’s Hiroki Nakamura, Carri Munden and, bizarrely, John Mayer. These are all great, but the most interesting blog has to be that of A.P.C’s Jean Touitou.

Touitou’s blog focuses on things like the APC butler series, wood research for their perfume bottles and living it “P Daddy Style”. His tendency to write short sentences does leave the reader a little confused sometimes, as shown with his latest post shows. He simply puts up a picture of Nicholas Sarkozy and titled it ‘Sick of this’.

A.P.C’s Top Ten Essential items

The Top 10′s on Men.Style.com are pretty
fascinating, purely because they give you a tiny window into a designers life
and influences. As you’d expect, most designers name an Apple mac and a piece of
clothing amongst their top ten essentials, but some are more abstract than
that.

Take A.P.C’s Jean Touitou, for
example. His top ten features rice, water, books, Olive Oil and soap. Unlike other designers, his choices aren’t brand led. So there’s no 61" TV’s like Ozwald Boateng or customized iMacs like Paul Smith. Touitou’s choices are similar to his design philosophy in that they’re simple and uncluttered, yet not plain in any way. His
most interesting/bizarre choice however, is white sheets. He says he uses them to ‘cover
shitty art in a hotel room’.
