Kanye West Presents A.P.C. Collection, Admits 'I Have A Very Bad Education In Fashion'

Kanye West's first stab at Paris Fashion Week didn't go so smoothly, with one review declaring about his 2011 womenswear line, "Kanye West's fashion debut was like being subjected to an hour long MRI scan -- but not as much fun." By September 2012, it was announced Kanye would not be showing at Paris Fashion Week the next season.

But the ever determined rapper-cum-designer gave it another go in 2013 with a collaboration with French brand A.P.C. He started small -- just jeans, tees and a hoodie -- but the collection was actually a huge hit. So this past Saturday in Paris, West introduced his second capsule collection for A.P.C.

Editors captured the presentation in photos on Twitter, while The Cut was there to speak to West directly:

West appeared to be a little nervous, saying with a modest laugh, "I have a very bad education in fashion, I kind of learned it on"

He had reason to be nervous, given how poorly his first attempts at high fashion were received. So how'd he do this time? Mixed reviews yet again. Check out photos taken in Paris on Saturday.

How does his menswear compare with his womenswear?
