This is dope!
The fashion-forward rapper has collaborated with French brand A.P.C. on a line of men’s clothing.
The capsule collection will go on sale July 14. A.P.C. posted a photo of a pair of jeans with a red tag that said “A.P.C. Kanye.” The photo also appears as an ad in French Vogue.
The brand made the announcement on Twitter, writing, “A.P.C. KANYE CAPSULE COLLECTION JULY 14.”
W magazine previously revealed that the collection will include jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies.
Kanye’s friend Virgil Abloh tweeted, “He’s a designer. We are all designers first. Creative black kids from Chicago running around the world getting ideas out. Don’t let non-believers limit you. Why? Cause this ad wouldn’t be in French Vogue this month otherwise.”
The hip-hop mogul forayed into women’s fashion with his Dw line, which he unveiled at Paris Fashion Week.
Chris Brown took it to Twitter today to reveal who will be featured on his upcoming album X.

Jay-Z has purchased a Mercedes-Benz hood that Swizz adorned with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s face. He dubbed the piece “Holy Grail” and dedicated it to Hov. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to art schools.
“Look who purchased my Basquiat on Benz Hood 2day,” tweeted Swizz. “what a honor and Blessing I’m so grateful for the support! July 4 its Showtime ART LIFE!!! I will use proceeds to continue helping kids in need.”
Jay-Z continues to share lyrics to songs we’re so curious to hear and the latest peek at lyrics we have is the Blue Ivy-inspired track “Jay-Z Blue (Daddy Dearest).” In the breakdown of the track, posted below, Hov raps about fatherhood, the absence of his own and the “paranoia of not being a great dad.” This is something all new fathers can relate to.
