Kanye West's A.P.C. Collection Sells Out Immediately

He’s got a hit album, a new baby — and now Kanye West has one more thing to celebrate: A sellout clothing collaboration.

West’s collection for French ready-to-wear line A.P.C. was shrouded in secrecy up until it launched Sunday at 10 a.m. Paris time.

At which point, the nine-piece capsule collection (which A.P.C. designer Jean Touitou said was two years in the making) crashed the site and sold out promptly, though A.P.C. is still taking pre-orders for the next shipment until Wednesday at 1:00 p.m.

“Over the months, we kept hanging out and finally came up with the idea of doing a small capsule collection of clothes together,” Touitou said in a statement before the line was unveiled. “‘Small’ meaning that this capsule collection consists of a jean, a hoodie and a T-shirt. Those are precious to me and to Kanye too, because it took time and thoughts to get there.”

And he wasn’t kidding: The highly edited collection consists of two pairs of jeans, several hoodies and a small handful of tees — perfect for a busy new dad without much time to think about his wardrobe. (Though at the prices, starting at $120, he’d better keep a spit-up towel handy.)

Tell us: What do you think of West’s clothing collaboration? Would you want to shop it?

@mrmonkee, if you can afford to buy expensive clothes and shower your wife with gifts, why would you by something that costs bank but makes you look like you live in the ghetto? You say you have too much “pride” to shop at walmart or Target, looks like the joke is on you. You spent 250 dollars on a sweater that looks JUST LIKE YOU BOUGHT IT AT WALMART. You are SO RICH that you have the time to waste on trying to look poor, apparently that is all of the rage in Hollywood and whatever fantasy land you live in. Enjoy your sleeveless hoodie, I’m going to buy $250.00 worth of clothes at Target and cover all 3 of my kids.

Knwing his ego, he probably purchased the merchindise himself., to create a buzz, and maybe other will buy into his bs, and or to avoid embaresement. Ilived in France for many yrars , I just don’t see the french buying into , the people that would buy his clothes dont have the money to afford it, the one that can afford it , wouldnt buy his line , they have more classic style and would not wear this clothes ,even if Kanye paying them to . So he can go fool someone else. It is a marketing scham.

obviously the only prople he was interested in impressing are the “bling Ring” crowd; by the way have you ever seen his wife’s collection; I believe I saw it in JC Penny or the like and the clothes are laughable; they look like frocks for middle-aged women.
