Certain editors here wear A.P.C. jeans almost every single day (cough, cough, you know who you are). But, the beauty of A.P.C. is that you can get away with repeat outfit performances of not only their jeans, but basically everything else that they make, on the reg. Consider us amped, then, that the French brand is opening their second Manhattan store, A.P.C. Specials, a new 500-square-foot retail concept in the heart of the West Village. Located right at the choice stretch of Bleecker street that's home to Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs, Specials holds its own with an unexpected mix of offerings, all of them, well, special. Alongside their regular denim, the boutique will carry the Butler Worn-Out jeans, a hand-picked clutch of House of Waris jewels, all the collabs, the full range from the Quilt series, and, wait for it, vintage A.P.C. pieces. Of course, we sent a photog to the jean scene for a shop slideshow that's one special delivery.
