Fashionistas and Yeezus fans around the world got a very special surprise this morning via Twitter. After speculation arose last week that Kanye West might be in the works designing a collection with A.P.C., the French brand confirmed this morning that the rumors are indeed true.

The rumors first started circulating when Christopher Bagley mentioned in W Magazine that Kanye was working on a collection with a “hip” French brand, to be released this July. Here at Styleite, we guessed that it might not be such a bad idea. And now that July is here, we’re excited to see that we were right.
The tweet from A.P.C. was accompanied by the above picture of “Kanye West” jeans, which suggests he really has taken it easy on the leather skirts and is offering a more casual line. As we noted last week, jeans might be a better realm for West, after his disastrous Dw line that everyone hated in 2011. Or perhaps, like Yeezus, the collection will be
unnecessarily angry inspired by Le Corbusier and trips to the Louvre.
The Capsule Collection will be available July 14, and until then we’ll wait with baited breath. Hurry up with my damn jeans!
