Earlier this year, graffiti artist Kidult tagged an A.P.C. location in Paris as a direct response to A.P.C. founder and creative director Jean Touitou‘s racism controversy surrounding the naming of his “Last Ni**as in Paris” collection. “NI**AS” and “Latin adj. ‘niger’; Contemptuous, offensive and racism for a black person” were spray-painted across the store’s display, and this month we’ll be seeing the release of a special tee that memorializes the incident. The “Double Standards” T-shirt is a standard black tee with red spray-painted lettering featured across the chest and the A.P.C. logo with Kidult’s skull symbol at the back. The “Double Standards” T-shirt will be released free of charge as a limited production run of 100 pieces on June 20 at Kidult’s online shop.
