Kanye West For A.P.C

Unless you've been living under a rock, you may have heard of a rumored collaboration happening between Kanye West and the French fashion label. A.P.C. The leather loving rapper debuted his first fashion collection back in 2012 in Paris and hasn't stopped his reigned since. The capsule collection will be available July 14 at 10 am and will consist of jeans, a T-shirt, and a hoodie. On Twitter, Kanye confirmed the collaboration by thanking Jean Touitou followed by a linked to the website: 

@kanyewest: Thank you Jean Touitou for letting me create with you

In a statement, Jean Touitou admitted he didn't know who Kanye West was when he first came into the studio for advice on starting something in fashion. He addressed himself as "Kenny" and wanted some advice about the fashion industry. He talked about the death of his mother and everything else that was happening in his life to which Touitou was curious to know what this gentleman was currently doing in his life. I simply asked him: "May know what your trade is, sir?" He took his shades down, so I could finally see his eyes, and answered me: "I am a hip hop artist". And the rest is history. 

I am interested to see what designs West is going to contribute to A.P.C when it makes it debut and how it's going to be different from previous collaborations between artists and designers? What are your thoughts on A.P.C Kanye? Do you think its going to be a success?
