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.

The Hundreds x Garbage Pail Kids Collection

Frigid Bridget and Itchy Richie. Remember them? No, they’re not the names of your “ex” and your roommate from college. But they are, in fact, the names of Garbage Pail Kids, the sick, twisted, and oh so fun trading cards from the awesome ‘80s. First came the special Hundreds/Garbage Pail Kids Adam Bomb T-shirt, and now the two names have joined forces again to create a collection of tees, crewnecks, caps, and key chains.  With this new collection, GPK fans will discover a new set of wonderfully inappropriate characters, inspired by Hundreds personnel. Some new names include Blobby Bobby, Burger Ben, Stinky Scotty and Trashy Ashley. Look for the new GPK’s at The Hundreds flagships, online, and authorized retailers on December 15th.
