Following last season’s collaboration, French label A.P.C. once again teams up with Kanye West on a second collection. The news first broke via an Instagrammed photo from A.P.C.’s official Instagram page and confirms early hints by brand founder Jean Touitou. Judging by the first few images, we can expect an expanded line of clothing with several distinct pieces of outerwear alongside woven shirts. As the collection is set for Fall/Winter 2014, the goods should drop around the same times as Kanye’s collaboration with adidas which is set to release in September.
While it seems like just yesterday that we were following the story surrounding A.P.C. KANYE, from the insane quotes of both Jean Touitou and Kanye West to the details of the collection’s fit and size runs, A.P.C. just Instagrammed a photo from their presentation which shows what we can expect from part 2 of this collaboration. Jean Touitou previously hinted in an interview with Business Of Fashion at that there would be a second installment to this collection, but details were extremely limited as to when and in what capacity.
As you can see, the new collaboration expands upon the knits and denim of the first offering with several distinct pieces of outerwear as well as woven shirts. The real standout here of course is the fur lined coat, which is reminiscent of Kanye’s (and Lord Disick’s) own.
Apparently Kanye talked through the looks for quite some time at the presentation, going so far as to say he learned about clothes from Tommy Ton’s street style photos. It’s also important to note that these clothes should drop around the same time as Mr. West’s highly anticipated collection with Adidas.
