Controversial rapper and public figure Kanye West debuts his second capsule collection for A.P.C. Fall 2014 in collaboration with founder Jean Touitou. The inspiration for the coming season is "men who have elegance," drawing upon fashion icons like Yves Saint Laurent, Samuel Beckett, Marc Jacobs and Kurt Cobain. A major influence for the collection is Mr. West himself.
The models flaunt sophisticated wool suits, requisite neckties, fur-lined vests and full face masks. We've seen Kanye sporting full-face masks on his recent tour, but the masks seem out of place paired with such elegant looks.
The staple look from the line is the women's inspired luxurious-looking fur-lined coat paired with a jean ensemble and completed with suede lumber-jack boots. The 'Monochromatic' series all-white baggy pant and denim duos are dedicated to Kurt Cobain and Lenny Kravitz. The minimalistic A.P.C. Fall 2014 Collection infuses Jean's and Kanye's personal tastes in an unique way. Following the show Kanye stated, “That was like getting in a Lamborghini and driving really, really fast".
