What Happens When You Let Kanye West Design Clothes

Kanye West sold out his most recent collection for A.P.C. last year. His fashion fans crashed A.P.C.’s website in search of $120 white t-shirts and $280 sweatshirts. Naturally, A.P.C. gave him another collection this year.

He explained that ‘paint colors’ inspired his collection as “had the modern family, which he described as ‘me, Kim and North’ living a ‘jet-set life’ between New York, Paris and Los Angeles”. So basically, colors inspired him, as well as him just looking around his private jet. Nice.

Take a look at his collection and try to predict this season’s best sellers.

Be a modern-day Superman and wear this jacket like a cape.

Will you be Chewie tonight or will she? Or will he? It doesn’t matter. I mean, you’re already simulating wookie sex.

James Bond Skyfall Peacoat

While finding a Pussy Galore for your arm is no easy task, finding a 007 coat for your torso is not.

The styling of this 100% wool coat is classic, featuring a peak lapel, single back vent, and trim fit. And you’re gonna need a trim fit if you’re gonna try to corral an Octopussy.

Canali Double-Breasted Leather and Shearling Coat

I’m not gonna go through the trouble of actually looking at the calendar, but that nip I’ve noticed in the air lately tells me it’s time to make a wardrobe change.

This Italy-made coat is 100% sheepskin, and you know what else is made of sheepskin, dontcha!?!  Sheep.

Gore-Tex® Herringbone N-3B Boa Jacket

It’s true. An attractive man can make even the most unflattering attire look good. But what if you somehow missed the boat on that gene pool? Well luckily for you, designer Yosuke Aizawa makes outdoor apparel to look good on just about anyone. He has a knack for combining functional materials like Gore-Tex and Pertex with more traditional fabrics like Herringbone and jacquard knits.
