Kanye West is not only making waves on the charts, but also in the fashion world. Moments after going on sale, his men’s clothing collection with French brand A.P.C. sold out.
After it launched Sunday at 10 a.m. Paris time, the nine-piece capsule collection crashed the site and was soon unavailable.
The pricey line consists of two pairs of jeans priced at $265, long and short-sleeved hoodies ($250-280), and “Hip-Hop T-shirt” that costs $120.
Kanye worked closely with A.P.C. designer Jean Touitou on the collection, which took two years to create. “Over the months, we kept hanging out and finally came up with the idea of doing a small capsule collection of clothes together,” said Touitou. “‘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.”
According to People, A.P.C. has restocked some items and is accepting pre-orders for other sold-out items through Wednesday at 1 p.m.
