A.P.C. designer and head honcho Jean Touitou recently sat down with Matthew Schneier of Style.com to share his thoughts on the recent collaboration with Kanye West. With the collection finally in stores after more than two years of work, Touitou recalls the discussions that led to the capsule collection’s fruition. Touitou also touches on the future of the collaboration and dealing with celebrities. Head over to Style.com for the full piece.

The devil was in theoretical discussion, not in details. When you deal with a guy who wants to redesign just about anything so it could fit [into the] kingdom of dopeness, it takes some time to just sit and say, “Okay, agreed, but let’s get start on something limited, and we’ll see.”
