He’s got a hit album, a new baby — and now Kanye West has one more thing to celebrate: A sellout clothing collaboration.

West’s collection for French ready-to-wear line A.P.C. was shrouded in secrecy up until it launched Sunday at 10 a.m. Paris time.

At which point, the nine-piece capsule collection (which A.P.C. designer Jean Touitou said was two years in the making) crashed the site and sold out promptly, though A.P.C. is still taking pre-orders for the next shipment until Wednesday at 1:00 p.m.

“Over the months, we kept hanging out and finally came up with the idea of doing a small capsule collection of clothes together,” Touitou said in a statement before the line was unveiled. “‘Small’ meaning that this capsule collection consists of a jean, a hoodie and a T-shirt. Those are precious to me and to Kanye too, because it took time and thoughts to get there.”

And he wasn’t kidding: The highly edited collection consists of two pairs of jeans, several hoodies and a small handful of tees — perfect for a busy new dad without much time to think about his wardrobe. (Though at the prices, starting at $120, he’d better keep a spit-up towel handy.)

Tell us: What do you think of West’s clothing collaboration? Would you want to shop it?

Wouldn’t touch anything associated with the a$$. Surprised that anyone else would.

Not really hard to sell out eight items, is it?

I hope the “two years in the making” part refers to trying to convince Kanye to do the line. Otherwise, if it took that long to create those pieces…yikes. An 8 year old could have designed those.

I was on the site less than 30 minutes after it was up and was only able to get the sweatshirt.($250) I wanted a couple of the T’s ($120) but they were sold out but they did allow me to pre-order for the next shipment.

Two years in the making? WTH?

So ghetto. I’m Black and I won’t even touch his clothes! Not worth giving him my 1 cent!

As long as the jeans aren’t “skinny” I could be down, but I absolutely refuse to buy my boys skinny jeans.
