Finally! What you’ve all been waiting for: The Kanye West APC Paris second collection is finally here… well almost!
APC Kanye will be available to the public come July 17th, in the mean time, the fashion brand gave us a sneak peek at what’s going to be offered via their Instagram account. From what we can see, it’s got a fur-lined coat, denim shirts and pants, and other cool military-style pieces. West worked closely with the company’s owner Jean Touitou, who said the process of creating with Kanye West was easier the second time around — for the most part. “The process was easier the second time because we have learned more from each other, and then also we stopped by the military archive. It was surprisingly easier the second time, except at the end,” Touitou told Style.com.
At the end when Kanye wanted to change everything. Now, if you remember, we got a look at this collaboration earlier this year. From what we saw then to now, is completely different, because West reportedly changed quite a bit. “What happened at the end is exactly what he does to his own records, so I didn’t take it personally—like when it’s something he makes, and ten days before it drops, and then he wants to start from scratch. In music things are so possible, especially with today’s technology, good engineer, good computer, you could stretch time, but in fashion there are so many people involved, from weaving, knitting, choosing the yarn, choosing the color, making the pattern, making the first samples. It’s so much more material, but again, I don’t feel badly about him pushing the limits. So that was the difficulty. But apart from that, it was perfectly easy.”
But honestly, the line looks pretty awesome, so we’re definitely not hating on him for working his magic. By the way, according to Touitou, West was involved in nearly aspect of developing the brand. Well, duh. Head over to Style.com for more information!
