Six months after premiering their second and likely last collaborative collection during a weekend presentation at Paris Fashion Week, Kanye West and Jean Touitou’s A.P.C. brand have announced their 2014 fall/winter offering will officially launch this month, on July 17. Presenting the same set of garb we saw back in January, the two lovers of minimalism dived deep into Touitou’s expansive military-centric archives to create something that is totally cool, casually luxurious and simplistically comfortable. In an interview with Style.com, the Parisian clothier talked about Kanye’s involvement, stating:
Of course he would decide with me on every part of it. We would choose the fabrics and the color and the proportions, sleeves, shoulders, and there were a lot of fittings. It’s not like we want to do a parka, send the pattern to China, and OK we have the parka and I OK it. It’s not like that at all. We produce a first and second sample, a mock sample, a third sample, and finally the last one is good. It’s like a couture piece for every item.
The full 14-piece capsule collection will be available in store and online starting July 17.
