The A.P.C. x Kanye collection drops today, and the second iteration of this partnership takes strong cues from a military perspective. In fact, A.P.C. founder and creative director Jean Touitou and Kanye West dug through archives of clothing from different armies to form a clearly defined framework, from which a collection of minimal basics, oversized knits, and luxurious yet tough outerwear was developed.
If you're shook that you won't be able to get your hands on this collection since the first season sold out very quickly, you'll be more than happy to hear that other retailers are stocking the A.P.C. x Kanye collaboration. One such store is Totokaelo, a Seattle-based outfit that is hands down one of the best clothing destinations in the world right now.
Totokaelo and Complex have collaborated on this exclusive editorial that takes a closer look at the A.P.C. x Kanye pieces that are available today. With each item so rooted in military inspiration, the shoot takes an unexpected path that uses the universally symbolic white flag as a motif to balance the collection's narrative. The images allow for the details and quality craftmanship of each item to come through in a series of monochromatic looks.
Click through this exclusive editorial to experience an incredible take on the available portion of the A.P.C. x Kanye collection with full details, and stay tuned for more to come from Totokaelo and this collaboration.
