“Being nimble is the one thing that we have prioritized,” Outdoor Voices founder Tyler Haney told Business of Fashion in an August interview, referencing the company’s low-inventory, e-commerce-focused business. “There are too many fashion shows, too much loss of quality, too many parties,” A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou later told the same outlet. Seems like the companies have more in common than just striking, timeless gear.
The results of the A.P.C. x Outdoor Voices collaboration are jackets like a dark navy Anorak ($280), with a water-resistant shell and hidden-but-useful headphone holder, and the moisture-wicking Runningman sweats ($100), with a relaxed fit and tapered leg. Fashion has rarely felt so comfortable.
