PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.
Kanye-West-et-Jean-Touitou_portrait_w674.jpgKanye West's second -- and last -- collaboration with French brand A.P.C. is a fourteen-piece array of casual, easygoing separates weighted in urban utilitarianism. Digging deep into the brand's military archives with founder Jean Touitou, West (a.k.a. the "Steve Jobs of fashion") created fur-lined parkas, slim cargo pants, slouchy tees and nubby sweaters with names as simple as the pieces themselves, i.e. "Airport sweater" or "Kanye Jeans." (Btw -- "Kanye Jeans" sounds like our new favorite song.) Everything looks SO comfy and quality but is basically your typical Hanes and Levi's look with Kanye caché and a luxury price tag -- remember the $100 t-shirt outrage from collection #1? Those fur-lined parkas tho...

If you have any inkling to purchase, this is the time. West is moving on to start working on his new line with Adidas and it seems like Touitou is more than happy to have the collaboration come to an end, telling Style.com, "I'm tired of collaborating. I'm tired of it. And there's not so many people that I want to do anything with." View the full collection, out July 17, below:
