Another Kanye West collaboration with French label APC is headed your way this July, and the first looks have been revealed. Kanye unveiled six looks at the brand’s presentation over the weekend, and though there have been mutterings about Kanye’s design skills or lack thereof before, this was a relatively restrained, pared back collection from the musician. Fur-trimmed military-style coats, combat trousers, camouflage T-shirts – Kanye drew on existing APC styles and exaggerated the silhouettes, adding drama and texture.

There was also a monologue from the man that mentioned progressing from a fashion victim to a fashion icon – we’re not sure it’s happened yet, but this collaboration is a good start. His first collection with APC, launched last year, sold out in minutes and crashed the website, an occurrence which is more than likely to happen again this year.
