In case you didn't already know, Kanye West is really, really into fashion. If his design debut back in 2012 didn't convince you already, West is adding another fashion credit to his list of rap extracurriculars: a sure-to-be chic designer collaboration with A.P.C.
Last month, W Magazine's profile of the rapper teased "his new men’s capsule collection of jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies for a hip French brand, to be unveiled in July." Rumors swirled that Kanye was working with A.P.C., the Jean Touitou-helmed brand favored by hip Parisians and those who wish to dress like them. A.P.C. confirmed the collaboration on Instagram and on their website this morning, teasing a pair of blue jeans labeled "A.P.C. KANYE." The succinct caption? "A.P.C. KANYE CAPSULE COLLECTION, JULY 14. #apc #kanyewest"
WHEN I FIRST LANDED IN PARIS. YE BROUGHT ME TO APC HEADQUARTERS TO MEET JEAN SEEING THIS COLLAB COME OUT AFTER MANY DESIGNERS TELLIN YE HE COULDNT DO SHIT IS SO FRESH
Sh-t should be so fresh, indeed. Mark you calendars for July 14 at 10 AM, kids. What do you think this collaboration has in store for us?
UPDATE, 7/8/2013: Kanye West has confirmed the collaboration himself, in a way; KanyeWest.com is now a landing page for the above "A.P.C. KANYE" photo.
Kim should get ready for this one, too:
