Kanye West's highly-anticipated and much-talked about A.P.C. collection was finally made available in stores and online this morning. As expected, the Yeezus disciplies lined up early at the SoHo location to their hands on the sweaters, T-Shirts, and jeans. There were also more than a few who went online to shop the collection, which led to the U.S. website crashing not even an hour into it.
Whether or not people were interested in making a purchase, though, there have been plenty of reactions and reviews about Yeezy's second jab at designing clothing (the first being his women's collection). A.P.C. designer Jean Touitou told W that the collection took two years to create. "When we finally finished this collection, I felt like, Okay, if I made this happen, then I can achieve peace in the Middle East," he told W. So what's the overall consensus? Was it worth the wait? There were legions of Kanye West and A.P.C. fans who certainly appreciated the collection, but there were also other who thought they could spend the $200 elsewhere.
