A.P.C. TAKES BACK YOUR CLOTHES FOR A REINSERTION OF SOLIDARITY

HOW DOES THE RECYCLING PROGRAMME WORK ?

The recycling programme allows all customers to return their old A.P.C. clothing to our store in exchange for a credit note valid for 6 months, according to a specific rate schedule. The returned products are aggregated and donated to a charitable organisation to be sold in a network of charity shops. The programme is permanent and is implemented in all of A.P.C.'s Paris stores.

WHAT PRODUCTS ARE ELIGIBLE?

The program concerns all ready-to-wear and shoe collections (excluding accessories).

Price list

A.P.C. reserves the right to refuse to take back a product under the recycling programme, particularly if its condition is not in conformity with our requirements, or if its origin is uncertain. The value of the credit notes is applicable to the price (including VAT) displayed in stores. The recycling programme is not offered in department stores nor on the e-commerce site.

THE WORD OF JEAN TOUITOU, CREATOR FOUNDER OF A.P.C

Something made a lasting impression on me when I was a kid in Tunis. Amongst the continuous ballet of street vendors, who walked down the road pushing ahead a kind of huge wheelbarrow two of them weren’t selling anything. Instead, they were picking things up. Each of these vendors or collectors had a slogan. The one who picked up clothes would say “roba vecchia” or “vecchia” for short.

The one who wanted old bread would say something else, I can’t remember what, even though he was the one who intrigued me most. What could these pieces of old bread be used for? It wasn’t until much later that I understood: these leftovers added “substance” to home-cooked meals. An authentic meatball has to be prepared with old bread.

This idea of recycling things has always been somewhere at the back of my mind. At A.P.C., we explore this idea with quilts, Butlers and tote bags. 

So it was only natural to invite our customers to bring their “roba vecchia” back to A.P.C. These garments will get a second life and help people who don’t necessarily have the means to dress in good-quality clothes.
