Kanye West is not giving up on his fashion career!

Despite receiving poor and mixed reviews for his past collections, the rapper is going forward on another collection with A.P.C.

And why not? His first one was a resounding success!

Yeezy presented his new collection to a group of fashion editors and bloggers in Paris on Sunday, and, as we've come to expect, he had a lot of quotable moments as well!

Get the HIGHlights …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

On how he got his fashion education:

"I wanted to go to Central Saint Martins, but Louise Goldin said that I was too famous. So I basically had to learn my clothes through Style.com, through like Scott [Schuman] The Sartorialist, Tommy Ton, and dudes shopping. And luckily, I was rich enough to make mistakes and learn by like just being a fashion victim—which I definitely have been a fashion victim—and to flip it from fashion victim to maybe a fashion icon, to actually a person who can give an opinion, and that's what I'm in the process of doing. So I just want everyone to be patient with me as we go on this journey."

On how Jean Touitou instructed him on designing:

"Jean has basically taught me how to drive on the right side of the street, ’cause it's like I started off in a Lamborghini drunk-driving down the middle of Paris and shit and he's like 'Okay now, let me show you the steps to take.'"

On vetoing Jean's suggestions:

"Jean has given me the opportunity to take his experience, his taste level—because you have to take a good part. Even if we don't agree on things sometimes, you know, his level of restraint and my level of turn up, or sometimes he wants to turn up. Sometimes he'll make like, a leopard T-shirt and be like 'we should do this leopard T-shirt!' …I don't know if I wanna be the black guy that did the leopard T-shirt."

On one of his designs that he really likes:

"This sweater is dope as fuck. That's like some shit I would wear to the airport."

On being into the monochromatic looks right now:

"So I'm into this monochromatic thing. I'm always happy when I have a monochromatic outfit that isn't black, and that usually takes like seven years' worth of shopping to get right. You'll have like these green pants you got in Japan and this one shirt that you got on tour in Seattle in a thrift store, and this one jacket."

On how being a famous rapper helps him make clothes:

"I'm a rapper, and that's my main profession that allows me to attempt to—but maybe fail at—making clothes, and also to communicate to editors at GQ, or to directors like Wes Anderson—name drop, name drop!"

On how he should be allowed to make music AND fashion:

"What people don't realize is, actually, my music is better when I'm allowed to eat my food and drink at the same time. I can walk places quicker when I'm allowed to use my right leg and my left leg. It's like: 'You make so much off of your left leg, you're the best left-legged person! You could never use your right leg, why would you wanna do that?'"

On taking advice from others:

"With this [collection] I wanted to use soft fabrics. People always said I should have always done this, and I hate the fact that I'm actually doing it because I never wanna fucking listen to anything someone says."

On his approach to fashion last year:

"In 2013 I decided just to turn up. I said, you know, I tried to approach it in a tasteful way, let me try approaching it in a very non-tasteful way—in a very 'fuck the world' type way, where all of this is a dream, and instead of it being a nightmare or frustrated expression of what I can't get out, let me see if I can get people to understand this."

On making his clothing "swagger-out":

"These pants I got from Jean's archives. These are like motorcycle pants, and if you get up close you can see it's like waxed cotton and this suede, which we made thicker so it'd hold the pants. I'm always trying to get a little more creases in this area, but most people when they do cargos, they don't know. I always have to re-tailor shit because it's really wide here and I have to slim it out here. What I did was give you the option, these buttons you can unbutton to make it wider if you like. That's just like details that are very swagged out."

He's the gift that keeps on giving!

Don't ever change, Kanye!

    How can anyone possibly take this clown seriously? He is a joke. Kim is a joke. Together they are a bigger joke. And yes, they are still both fashion victims.

    Is this the 2014 Taliban collection?



  3. 3

    Any fucking kid. Any kid. As in any body on the planet. Any kid from the 90's could put that crap together. It's stupid. He's basing it off looks that he admired in the mid 90's. Those construction boots, for example. Have been around forever and a fucking day. This dude is a fucking fraud. Plain and simple. What a joke.

    Kim and Kanye together make perfect sense. It was just confirmed for me. Two fucking idiots

    He learned his fashion from "Style.com". Now, if people would bother to just wrap their heads around that statement they would realize what a fraud he is. Because he's as versed in fashion as he is in music. In other words, he's fucking not.

    gonna be alot more trayvon martins if boys want to start wearing that crap. I see one of those coming out at me, I'm getting out my Glock.

    Runs X-Files music sound clip: He can call it the Shadow People collection, or perhaps the Black Eyed Kids collection.

    Darth vader would be terrified of these guys if they walked into the bar wearing that "fashion". He'd scream like a girl and draw his lightsaber and then start breathing all heavy, fast and strained. His stormtrooper guards would be shivering and standing behind Chewie peaking over his shoulders and Chewie would be holding C-3P0 up like a shield. The fashionable dudes would insist "relax, everyone. We just came in here for a drink" and Darth Vader would scream again "EEEEEK! I knew they were vampires"

    HAHAHAHAH!!!! It's look like Kanye put everything that he bought from Urban Outfitter circa 1998 on these boys. They look homeless and ugly. He has the WORST sense of fashion. That fur lined jacket is the worst. It looks like a ladies coat.
