Apiece Apart Spring 2024 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Though at first glance their modern collection of wardrobe staples seemed like business as usual, there were fresh attempts at elevating their versatile assortment. They updated their suiting, for one, in rich corduroys and linens, and they envision their three-piece suit, in off-white linen, being worn as separates. Jackets like the Acacia overcoat have an interesting cocoon-like shape. “Developing our jacket language has been really important to us,” said Cramer. Kinetic knits—in lime or chartreuse—offer a pop of color to an otherwise quiet lineup. “We see colors as medicine,” said Houtt.

The designers also thought about new ways that their hero pieces can be styled and mixed and matched. A timeless striped shirtdress was worn as a top, with trousers underneath. “We’ve been working on different ways of accentuating the female form,” said Hout. This was balanced against more mens-y pieces, like a techy cropped bomber jacket that felt like new territory. They also expanded on their recently launched denim, showing a pair of their signature twisted-seam jeans in summer-ready white.

Apiece Apart’s Starr Hout and Laura Cramer looked inward to see what newness they could infuse into their line of easy, wearable separates for spring. “This was a season of grounding and expansion,” said Hout. “We did a lot of neutrals and really pushed the constructions forward, playing with pushing shapes and doing a lot of in-studio draping on our wrap dresses and skirts.”

A large assortment of breezy maxidresses, in florals or geo prints, were designed with beachy vacations in mind, as were the lace-crochet tops and maxiskirts. “They’re packable and wearable,” said Cramer. “You can get off the plane and still look great.”
