$90 For A Plain White T-Shirt! Check Out Kanye West's New A.P.C. Collection HERE & Decide If It's Worth The Pricey Cost!

Kanye West's last collaboration with A.P.C. was a huge hit, and this second time will likely be just as successful!

The collection draws inspiration from the military, which probably explains the balaklava (above) for sale as one of the pieces!

Other numbers include more standard but luxurious creations, including a fur-trimmed parka and cargo pants. There's also a standard white t-shirt for $90, naturally.

It wouldn't be a true Kanye collection without some crazy expensive basics!

The creative director of the label, Jean Touitou, revealed some inside info on what it was like working with Yeezy.

Regarding his second time working with the rapper, he said:

"The process was easier the second time because we have learned more from each other, and then also we stopped by the military archive. It was surprisingly easier the second time, except at the end."

Apparently things got complicated when Kanye wanted to make some last-minute changes. Touitou explained:

"What happened at the end is exactly what he does to his own records, so I didn’t take it personally—like when it’s something he makes, and ten days before it drops, and then he wants to start from scratch. In music things are so possible, especially with today’s technology, good engineer, good computer, you could stretch time, but in fashion there are so many people involved, from weaving, knitting, choosing the yarn, choosing the color, making the pattern, making the first samples. It’s so much more material, but again, I don’t feel badly about him pushing the limits. So that was the difficulty. But apart from that, it was perfectly easy."

Yeah, sounds like a breeze!

He also explained how involved the entire process was and how much Kanye contributed, saying:

"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 new collection will be available on July 17th, but you better get your hands on them now, because this is most likely the last collaboration between Jean and Kanye.

Jean said:

"I’m tired of collaborating. I’m tired of it. And there’s not so many people that I want to do anything with. Kanye has his own line with Adidas now. And we do Nike because we don’t know how to do running shoes and they know how to do it right. I don’t have a major collaborating project. But I’m creating a new brand, and we’re launching Vanessa Seward in March, launching the brand with a new company and everything."

    To any of the College Liberal types who will come here to complain about what a superficial piece of s**t you must be to spend $90 on a tee shirt:

    You haven't seen what this shirt looks like on a person. Sure, to slobs it is just a tee shirt, but even the average person will be able to tell that the 'YePC shirt is much nicer than a comparable $10 Hanes shirt. It's all in the details, and while APC name does drive up the price a bit, you can bet this is a nicea** plain white tee shirt.

    Last year's was $150, so this isn't even that bad IMO.

    Re: MichJB – I am a liberal. "College Liberal" means something different. Do a Google image search.

    If you were really a liberal, you would understand that different people live different lifestyles than you, and for some, spending $90 is no so outlandish. And to condemn them for doing it is not right.

    Re: MichJBRe: Don – Too funny! I agree with MichJB - $90 is just stupid. And Don, you can throw your liberal labels around all you want, but even if you can afford it, why pay $90 for a white t-shirt. Sure it might be made a bit better but really - you are paying for the name and that kinda makes you a dupe.

    Re: rosebud99 – How are you going to tell someone how they should spend their money and whether it makes them a dupe or not? Maybe they like A.P.C's house history? Maybe they want a shirt that wasn't made in a sweatshop in China? Heck, so what if they want it just to say they're wearing a $90 white tee shirt? It's their money and if they see value in something - whether you may like it or not - they'll buy it. And its none of your business to belittle them for their choices.

    You sound like a terrible person if you can't understand or at least tolerate the fact that expensive clothes are made, and some people buy them for reasons you wouldn't buy them for.
