A.P.C. Is Now Making Douchebags For Men, Literally

For all your essential needs.

November 14, 2014

Arbiter of Parisian cool and understated basics, A.P.C. is now producing douche bags for men. Described by the brand as "an excellent all-purpose pouch for men," the lamb leather drawstring satchels, emblazoned with the word 'douche,' initially confused the shopping masses who thought that A.P.C. were launching a new bag line called 'Douche, Paris.' A.P.C. label boss and Kanye collaborator, Jean Touitou finds the whole name mix up quite hilarious and, in a press release, likened the misunderstanding to tripping off three pills:

"I find it difficult to write about this, since it's impossible to translate the French expression "mise en abyme" - but that's what it is. So I will simply say this about the "Douche Bag" bag: Product description: an excellent all-purpose pouch, for men. (Women can use it too). The name meaning: those who know don't say, and those who say don't know."

-Jean Touitou

PS: It made me laugh so hard when I found out people really thought we were launching a brand of bags named "Douche, Paris," says Touitou. "Whenever I am depressed, this does like 3 Xanax to me."

A.P.C.'s Douche Bag collection, priced at $135, drops in stores next week.
