Fashion Director of M Le Monde Magazine, co-founder of Self Service Magazine and former Fashion Director of Vogue Paris, Suzanne Koller is one of the most respected names in the industry. Over the course of her 25-year career, her work has graced the covers of American Vogue, Vogue Italia and Vogue Paris and she has established relationships with Givenchy, Lacoste, and Chloe, among others.
Often lauded for looking “effortless” her personal style is unmistakably simple and sophisticated, comprising neutral tones of brown, beige and cream.
Renowned for its clean, pared-down aesthetic, A.P.C. has remained at the helm of Parisian fashion for more than thirty years. Suzanne Koller has consistently worked with the brand for eight, across both runway shows and advertising campaigns. Her knowledge of the label is unparalleled and it comes as no surprise that founder and chief designer Jean Touitou would look to her for the second collaboration in the brand’s “Interaction” initiative – a series of unique capsule collections designed by friends of the label.
When designing the line, Suzanne wanted to create a selection of timeless classics; essential items that are versatile yet chic, much like her own wardrobe. Consisting of 15 elegant pieces including jewellery and accessories, the collaboration is proof that her personal aesthetic aligns closely with the brands DNA.
Speaking to Vogue about the partnership Koller said, “It’s pieces I like, and I hope other people will like them…The approach to us working together felt natural because I have known Jean and Judith for 10 years. They gave me total freedom, and total freedom can be the hardest thing! In the end, what I’ve done is very me. I am a classic person, not very extravagant. We are all looking for that perfect right thing, and for me, at least, I’ve found them.”
The Complete Collection
The collaboration has received significant media attention from publications including Vogue Paris, Vanity Fair, T Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Tatler, Grazia and The Financial Times. Vogue Paris praised the collection, saying “[It] affirms Koller’s personal style: classically chic with a decidedly unclassic edge,” while Vanity Fair describe it as “chic and timeless.”
