Vanessa Seward continues to dress-down for A.P.C. with the ultimate casual chic basic: The Jeans. As she told Style.com,
"I was always in cocktail dresses and high heels. Now I'm a mother of a 2-year-old and I have a different life. I'm now obsessed with a type of casual chicness."
Like her last capsule collection for the French brand, fabrication was a big deal. Style.com notes that, "[A.P.C.] founder Jean Touitou peered inside a waistband to reveal one of the collection's secrets: expandable chain stitching to prevent any potential disagreements between fabric and the human form."
The high-waisted pairs, sure rub anyone awesome the right way, will land early next year. And that's not all. She also mentioned that, "We started off to do one collection; then we said, OK, let's do two. Now I'm working on the third one." Hopefully that one won't continue too far into casual territory. The world's not ready for jeggings by Seward.
