To redress the one-off situation, Touitou showed a trio of slim, slightly mod single-breasted coats. This is a winter collection we're talking about, after all. For women's poor feet, he collaborated with Nike on new sneakers. These were meant to channel American, specifically New York City, girls in the eighties, who wore running shoes to work. America is a current fixation; in the mix was a simple white sweatshirt proudly proclaiming "USA." French men, Touitou seemed to suggest, might be irredeemable. In the meantime he's hoping French women can wear A.P.C.'s one-shoulder shift designed by Vanessa Seward without being catcalled in the street. We're right there with you, Jean.
