Fiending For Fashion? Kanye West Inks Deal With Paris Clothing Company A.P.C.
Fashion isn’t just a passion for Kanye West. It’s also a stream of business opportunity.
He interned at Louis Vuitton; had his first line in 2005 called Pastelle Clothing (which he ended in 2009); has a sneaker line, Air Yeezy; his women’s fashion line, DW Kanye West, debuted in 2012; and he loves to attend fashion shows. And now the “Yeezus” rapper has confirmed a new collaboration with A.P.C., the Jean Touitou-led brand favored by fashion-forward Parisians.
Last month, West told W Magazine to be on the look out for “his new men’s capsule collection of jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies for a hip French brand, to be unveiled in July.” And now it seems to have come to be.
A.P.C. confirmed the collaboration on Instagram and on their website this morning, reports The Huffington Post. The company posted the photo at right with the caption: “A.P.C. KANYE CAPSULE COLLECTION, JULY 14. #apc #kanyewest”
