Are you ready for Kanye West’s next foray in fashion? You better be, as it has been confirmed by the most powerful sources that be, namely social media, that Kanye West will be taking his sartorial eye to French denim brand, A.P.C.
In his recent interview with W Magazine, West admitted that he was in the works of a menswear collection with a “hip French brand” that would range in items from “jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies” that combine West’s” fashion-forward silhouettes with the cool minimalism for which the French brand is known.”
Jean Touitou, creative director of the denim line, provided further details into the partnership with the Louis Vuitton Don (has he moved passed this?) in the latest issue of GQ:
“I introduced him to the A.P.C. design studio, and he kept asking how he could start something in that fashion industry. This is when we all advised him to start that something in France, and keep quiet about fashion noise while learning about it. Over the months, we kept hanging out and finally came up with the idea of doing a small capsule collection of clothes together.”
The three-piece offerings will be available Bastille Day (aka the celebration of the first day of the French Revolution. Who are these amazing marketing people? I need them on my team) July 14. If the $200 price point for A.P.C. is any indication, you may be paying a hefty coin to get your hands on some of the wares.
