The late ’80s have recently made quite the comeback. U2 has been printing money on their 30th anniversary Joshua Tree tour, big-shouldered style has been all over the runways, and now French label A.P.C. is jumping into the mix.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, the brand has released a capsule collection called Hiver 87, which includes a lineup of reissued pieces from its archives—including tees, jeans, a chambray shirt, and a parka. As for the name of the capsule, it’s a nod to the fact that, when the brand first launched, the collections weren’t labeled by brand but by season (“hiver” means “winter” in French). It wasn’t until the summer of 1989 that the name A.P.C. appeared to assuage customer confusion.
Everything from this collection represents a different year of the brand, and while the tees and sweatshirts are pretty straightforward, the jeans are actually in the shape of the original pair that released in 1989, with a higher rise and wider legs. Basically, it’s the perfect way to incorporate a bit of ’80s style into your wardrobe without digging into excessive zippers and acid wash. And since you by now very likely have more super slim jeans in your closet than you know what to do with, these will give your wardrobe some much-needed variety.
The collection is available now in both A.P.C stores and on the brand’s website. So load up on your favorite styles, throw some Starship on the record player, and transport yourself to a time when a Republican celebrity was in the White House and the country was fretting over Russians messing with our shit. Such a different era…
