Today, Yeezy confirmed that the collection will be happening, and GQ has reached out to the French fashion brand's creative director, Jean Touitou to get a statement on how the collaboration came about and what it will contain.
"Over two years ago, a visitor to the A.P.C. studio was announced to me as 'Kenny'. He wanted my advice on the fashion industry," Touitou told the men's publication. "At some point my crew informed me that his name was West, Kanye West. I introduced him to the A.P.C. design studio, and he kept asking how he could start something in that fashion industry."
From there, the two struck up a working relationship, and organically designed a small collection together. "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. "'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."
Looks like Touitou is just as excited about the collection as Kanye is. Stay tuned for images of the rest of the collection.
