Kanye West and A.P.C.'s Jean Touitou collaborated on a best-selling capsule collection of hoodies and tees together, but it wasn't all fun and games!
In a recent interview, Jean discussed the finer points of working with Yeezy and couldn't quite keep his frustration in check.
Regarding Kanye's notorious fastidiousness, he said:
"I just love the guy, so whatever. He could want a piece to be baggy and skinny at the same time… [but] oh well, you just find a way."
Drop-crotch pants! They're baggy in the crotchal region and tapered around the calves. Sadly, there are no drop-crotch pants in 'Ye's collection, just two pairs of straight-leg jeans for $265 a pop.
Jean also spoke about the I Am A God rapper's penchant for micro-management, saying:
"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.”
The "kingdom of dopeness"??? We'd like an invite, please!
And believe it or not, Jean was not impressed by Kanye's awesomeness. He said:
"Production hasn’t been so limited—mind you, sir, we are a small company. I am not anticipating anything. I never do. I am not into the celebrity thing. The only celebrities who impress me are writers. I follow no god, no celeb, no master, no myth."
Finally, he had these words of wisdom to impart:
"Fashion killed rock and roll. Fashion killed contemporary art, and turned it vulgar. And if hip-hop artists are not careful it will also kill hip hop."
Guess that means he really hates this song.
