Piecing Together an A.P.C. Quilt

We've long admired cult French fashion label A.P.C.'s quilts, but have shied away from the price tag. Luckily, we've come across a way to take home a small piece, thanks to Anthropologie.

The A.P.C. quilts are a collaboration between fashion designer Jessica Odgen and A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou. Touitou was inspired by his mother (she sewed quilts out of textile scraps from Kenzo) to make these quilts, which are pieced together from archival A.P.C. fabrics in traditional motifs. A.P.C. sells the quilts online, and Anthropologie carries pillows with A.P.C. quilted covers.
