At ĀPA-Intemporal we’re very excited about the release of our first product, the ĀPA Raincoat, and the launch of our Kickstarter campaign!

Having previously won the Kickstarter Creator Jam award at Berlin’s ‘Tech Open Air’ festival we have been very excited about our big day!

We decided there was no better way to mark this special ocassion then to gather friends, family, supporters, fashionistas and many others together to celebrate the launch of ĀPA’s Kickstarter campaign.

Here are some highlights and behind the scenes photos from the amazing night, held on Wednesday the 16th of May in Mitte, Berlin as well as a first look at our official Kickstarter ‘We’re Live’ email!

Launch party attendees had fun not only trying on ĀPA raincoats but they also had the opportunity to get wet and see the coat’s technology at work.

The evening also included a special keynote from Léa Stein, ĀPA-Intemporal’s Founder and Lead Designer. Léa shared inside stories from the forming of ĀPA-Intemporal and her desire to create the world’s most advanced raincoat — the ĀPA Raincoat. As part of the Keynote, guests were also treated to a special preview of ĀPA’s Kickstarter video. This clip is from the end of the video where Léa explains why she choose to launch on Kickstater.

Energized and full of love from the wonderful growing community ĀPA-Intemporal is building, the team cleaned-up after the party then tripple-checked everything was set for 08:00 CET in the morning — the time the ĀPA Raincoat was going live on Kickstarter.
