Kanye West's plain white t-shirt available for $120. We'll take ten.
Kanye, aka Yeezy, aka Yeezus, aka God, has crashed the retail site A.P.C. with his new collection of t-shirts, hoodies and jeans. The A.P.C. X Kanye collection was so popular among Kanye's army of followers that his clothing line sold out within hours and eventually crashed the site. But all is not lost for those looking for a $120 plain white T-shirt designed by the very hands of Kanye West. A.P.C. is currently taking pre-orders for the next delivery of merchandise. Thank God.
West's Jeans ($265), long-sleeve hoodie ($280), short-sleeve hoodie ($250), the chance to feel like Kanye for a day: priceless.
Four-Pins is reporting that,
according to a source, the West collab was “the most frustrating project [A.P.C.'s] worked on. [West] wanted to make changes up to, and after, the last minute.” The collection was supposed to be larger, but West’s perfectionism got in the way–and items, like a chambray shirt, were scrapped at the last minute because they didn’t meet his standards. “Basically, Jean [Touitou] issued an ultimatum saying SOMETHING needed to be released or he wouldn’t work with him, so they compromised.”
Touitou himself has commented on the difficulty of working with West. “When you deal with a guy who wants to redesign just about anything so it could fit [into the] kingdom of dopeness, it takes some time to just sit and say, ‘Okay, agreed, but let’s get start on something limited, and we’ll see,’” he told Style.com. “I just love the guy, so whatever,” he added. “He could want a piece to be baggy and skinny at the same time… [but] oh well, you just find a way.”
