Kanye West Teams Up With A.P.C. to Launch Men’s Collection
Kanye West dropped his ‘Yeezus’ album in June and now he’s going to release some designer threads in July. The rapper-producer has teamed up with French brand A.P.C. to launch a men’s clothing line.
Yeezy has emblazoned his entire website with a photo of a pair of jeans with a red tag that says, “A.P.C. Kanye.”
According to GQ.com, the three-piece capsule collection will consist of jeans, a T-shirt, and a hoodie in collaboration with West and A.P.C. designer and friend Jean Touitou.
In a brief summary to GQ, Touitou said he met West two years ago when he inquired about getting involved in the fashion world. Over time, the two struck up a friendship.
“At the time he was working with Jay-Z on an album, which wasn’t already named, ‘Watch the Throne,’” he writes. “Over the months, we kept hanging out and finally came up with the idea of doing a small capsule collection of clothes together. ‘Small’ meaning that this capsule collection consists of a jean, a hoodie and a T-shirt. Those are precious to me and to Kanye too, because it took time and thoughts to get there.”
The collection is expected to go on sale July 14 at 10AM. For more info on A.P.C., click here.
