A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou really likes LA. The denim genius recently spoke with Interview magazine about the fifth anniversary of his West Hollywood store, and said: "[LA] is loud, it's true, but still there's a lot of people who care what we do, or other brands do. There are a lot of elegant people...there's a tradition of elegance in Los Angeles." Touitou also revealed his plans for a second West Coast location in Venice.
Of course, that can only mean Abbot Kinney. And while the interview doesn't make clear whether or not Touitou has decided on a space or when the store might open, it doesn't hurt to guess. Anyone have more info or thoughts about the where/when?
