Kanye collaborates with A.P.C.

Menswear launching 14 July

As if releasing a new album and becoming a father for the first time aren’t keeping him busy enough, Kanye West is about to make a designer comeback – in collaboration with A.P.C.

The French label announced news of the partnership on Twitter over the weekend, releasing an image of a pair of jeans with a red label bearing the logo A.P.C. Kanye, and the caption ‘A.P.C. KANYE CAPSULE COLLECTION, JULY 14. #apc #kanyewest’.


Little more is known about the collection for now but we hear we’re to expect menswear, with a focus on denim and streetwear.

Of course, this isn’t the man latterly known at Yeezus’ first foray into the fashion world – far from it. There was DW by Kanye West, his own-name label, which appeared on the Paris schedule for a couple of seasons back in 2012. Plus, he’s close with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, there was that 2009 shoe line for Louis Vuitton… And how could we forget the fact that his style cred allegedly swung Kim Kardashian a long-coveted Met Ball ticket for the first time this year?

We’re officially excited.
