The fall/winter 2014 season of the A.P.C. x Kanye collaboration has been revealed. The second edition of this partnership saw Kanye West and A.P.C.'s founder Jean Touitou go deep into military archives to come up with a season of tough but comfortable gear that consists of 14 different pieces. Once again, prices won't be cheap, but don't expect this stuff to stay on shelves long once it drops on July 17.
Style.com spoke with Touitou about the process this go-around, which was, "surprisingly easier the second time, except at the end." Apparently, Kanye wanted to make changes up until the very last moment, something Touitou expected after learning that that's what the rapper does with his records. Touitou also describes how the two of them went through old military archives and pick and choose different pieces from different armies from which to draw inspiration.
For the fans of this military-inspired offering that combines ruggedness and luxury, the bad news is that this is the last time Kanye and A.P.C. will be collaborating. Not only does Kanye's affiliation with adidas conflict with A.P.C.'s collaborations with Nike, but Touitou stated, "I’m tired of collaborating. I’m tired of it. And there’s not so many people that I want to do anything with." So mark your calendars for July 17 and start saving up now.
