The voyage of APA intemporal

ĀPA was born out of necessity. After living in Brussels, Paris, New York and urban cities where it rains for much of the year, Franco-Belgian designer Léa Stein discovered what was missing in the current fashion market: a modern coat that merges luxury with technology, effectively protecting wearers from the ever changing unpredictability of weather.

About us

The voyage of APA intemporal

In 2016, ĀPA was founded in collaboration with colleagues from European luxury brands. Léa’s vision for APA included the integration of clean silhouettes, attention to detail, and artisan high-fashion European manufacturing with today’s most innovative performance technologies from, labs, and suppliers in Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Germany.

About Us

The voyage of APA intemporal

ĀPA is the Sanskrit word for the element of ‘water’ and we have built our coats to live-up to their namesake. With a first collection launched in 2019, ĀPA is proud to present its MODERN RAINCOATS, an offer for those with an eye for style and an appreciation for comfort, regardless of what the weather has in store for us.
