After Timberland severed its relationship with A.P.C. because of designer Jean Touitou’s offensive remarks during his show — see here for a refresher — the designer has issued a formal apology. In a statement released to GQ, Touitou said, “When describing our brand’s latest collaboration, I spoke recklessly using terms that were both ignorant and offensive. I apologize and am deeply regretful for my poor choice of words, which are in no way a reflection of my personal views.” At least he didn’t name-check Kanye again?
