Kanye West's A.P.C. Collection Sells Out Immediately

He’s got a hit album, a new baby — and now Kanye West has one more thing to celebrate: A sellout clothing collaboration.

West’s collection for French ready-to-wear line A.P.C. was shrouded in secrecy up until it launched Sunday at 10 a.m. Paris time.

At which point, the nine-piece capsule collection (which A.P.C. designer Jean Touitou said was two years in the making) crashed the site and sold out promptly, though A.P.C. is still taking pre-orders for the next shipment until Wednesday at 1:00 p.m.

“Over the months, we kept hanging out and finally came up with the idea of doing a small capsule collection of clothes together,” Touitou said in a statement before the line was unveiled. “‘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.”

And he wasn’t kidding: The highly edited collection consists of two pairs of jeans, several hoodies and a small handful of tees — perfect for a busy new dad without much time to think about his wardrobe. (Though at the prices, starting at $120, he’d better keep a spit-up towel handy.)
