Kanye West’s A.P.C. Collection Sells Out Amid Outcry
Kanye West‘s luxury clothing line with French apparel brand A.P.C. sold out in a matter of minutes just before an influx of traffic crashed the website after its launch on Sunday (July 14).
Customers can still pre-order items from the nine-piece collection on the website until Wednesday (July 17). The items include fleece hooded sweatshirts priced at $280, Kanye Jeans that cost $265 and a Hip Hop T-shirt at $120.
Fans took to Twitter dissing Yeezy for his overpriced $120 T-shirt, which, although made of Egyptian cotton, looks like a regular shirt.
“This n—- Kanye really charging $120 for a plain ass white shirt? N—-, this shirt better have a magnetic field that attracts bad bitches to my d—,” wrote one commenter. “This shirt better let me fly, this shirt better get me into a 4 year university my n—-. This shirt better better be able to cook me dinner.”
Other people felt that West’s clothing line contradicts his anti-materialism message found on the ‘Yeezus’ track ‘New Slaves.’ “Kanye ‘Plain White T’ goes for $120. what about #newslaves?” a fan asked.
These two tweets pretty much sum up how most people felt about Kanye West’s price points for his A.P.C. collection:
I’m a huge Kanye West fan … but I will never … ever … pay $120 for a T-Shirt made by Kanye or any other designer
