Without realizing that A.P.C.’s 30th anniversary was approaching, Jean Touitou found himself digging into his archives. The A.P.C. archives as well as more personal documents. Sorting out and editing this material led to the concept of making what could be commonly called the A.P.C. book, telling the story of the brand as well as its founder. Jean decided to entitle it Transmission.

The book is divided in three parts:

  •  The first part – Percept – is scrapbook-like chapter based on Jean Touitou’s personal archives. Memories and pictures from his childhood in Tunisia, the 1970s in France or elsewhere, and other collages. (48p)
  •  The second part – Written material – gathers all texts written in an A.P.C. production context, presentation notes for instance. Jean chose those texts for their capacity to explain what makes the craft of a designer as well as his personal inspirations. (48p)
  •  The third part – Catalogue raisonné – is meant to be a retrospective journey of what made A.P.C. from 1987 to 2016. The clothes, objects, images, places, music, and events Jean Touitou remembered to be significant of the last thirty years. (448p)
