The A.P.C x Kanye West capsule collection came out on Sunday July 14th (Bastille Day) and SOLD OUT immediately, crashing the A.P.C web site. People also lined up outside of A.P.C’s Soho Store from 7AM which also sold out of the minimalist garments. When I say Minimalist I mean Minimalist. I checked out the site and the shirts that were sold out were PLAIN white and PLAIN dark navy blue “Hip-Hop T shirts!” Basically, nice fabric/Egyptian Cotton in extra long length-but no visual or logo on the outside! Just the inside tag has an A.P.C and KANYE on it. *When I go to New York I typically see a lot of advertising for A.P.C, but for some reason I’ve have never been to the Soho Store, maybe I’ll stop by in December 2013.
The collection also included some hoodies and two pairs of Jeans. The T’s were $120 each! The short sleeve hoodie (Kanye wore prior to the sale) was $250, the long sleeve hoodie was $280 and the skinny jeans were $265-One Pair was faded the other clean, dark blue. Last I checked Ebay prices were double and even triple.
But good news if you’re into these clothes you can still get some on a “Pre-Order” basis at A.P.C. But I think this sale wil end soon. I read somwhere that things will be on sale through this Wed July 17, 2013.
Me, I will be passing on this. The stuff just wouldn’t look right on me. Especially the T’s, be careful of how they might fit on your body shape. Just because Kanye looks good in them with his Cement 3’s or own brand of Kicks, doesn’t mean we all will look good in the same clothes. But might be fun to try and order a few things if they are still available and sell them later on ebay. But by then, we’ll probably be on to something else. I think it’s pretty crazy how fast things sold and how there isn’t even a logo to let people know you paid $120 for a T! Maybe you could paint a big K on the Front. That’s what I’d do if I bought the “Hip-Hop” T- shirt. I’d make it a little “Punk”-Rock.
What do you think of the A.P.C x KANYE Capsule Collection? “Street” or “Take a Seat”
Kim Kardashian tweeted this picture. She say’s that she is in Hawaii on Vacation and calls this picture “Happy Sunday” After I saw it on Twitter, I asked around and my LIVE not read on the net this time sources say: “She is currently in Hawaii with Kanye West who is busy recording and finishing up his album which is due out hopefully before December!”
Then I asked my other source and he said “Apparently ‘Two Chainz’ is also here recording tracks. Word has it that Beyonce and Jay Z are coming to join Kanye and Kim”.
Now there is a very exclusive recording studio about 5 minutes from where my dad lives near Koko Marina in Hawaii Kai that is for sure and that is probably where they are most of the time, at least that’s where Kanye most likely is hanging. Me, I work at 6 radio stations and know 2 people who know the people that run this “studio” but for some reason, I have yet to me invited for a tour. I have driven by it and it is hard to find, kind of like the old Batman and Robin TV show, hidden under some trees, practically under the water in a corner with gates and high security. Maybe one day, I’ll get an invite, I’d be happy to leak a few beatz to a track if Jay-Z, Beyonce, Two Chainz or Kanye would like it? Up to you guys? Or I can stop by and keep everything quiet if you like, I can keep a secret 100%. We could always talk Kicks, I bet I have almost as many as Jay-Z and Kanye, hey maybe we can trade some too. I wear size 10 and have a pair of size 8 and size 13 Lebron firstGame kicks I’d love to trade or sell to someone.
On the subject of Celebs, a third source of mine got to check out the video shoot of the upcoming Tyga Video. Don’t forget Tyga is coming to town next week on August 23rd, along with Walter French and Glasses Malone. Both to really nice, solid guys. I don’t know Tyga, but suspect he’s pretty cool if he has Walter and Glasses opening up for him. Hit up Romeo Valentine if you need some tix. His email is: email@example.com Let him know that streetzblog sent you and I’m sure he can hook you up with something..maybe some after party tickets..LMK what he says.
Wow, I sure got side-tracked tonight. I wanted to post up Kim then do a couple of polls. I guess I really must want to go to that Bat-Cave studio sometime. Here’s the polls.. First is do you think Kim looks hot or not in this shot. Personally, I like her Salt, Sun and Sand waves in her hair and she looks quite happy1 Second poll is what beach is she at? We all live here and can’t figure it out. I’ve heard everything from Sandy’s to Makaha to Kailua to Hawaii Kai. It’s so bizarre how 20 some people who live here can’t figure it out? I don’t know either, to me it looks like a neighbor island or the North Shore. So please fill out this poll or the other or both.
BTW: Last weekend Kim and Kanye were spotted over at Ward and also at a Starbucks somewhere on the island. Let us know if you have a Kim, Kanye, Two Chainz, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Tyga, Walter French or Glasses Malone spotting over the next couple of weeks. Keep your eyes out, there’s not too many places to hide on Oahu. Have an Awesome rest of the week!
Here they are! The brand new Air Jordan 4 Retro White/Cements, these just came out this weekend and as of Sunday 2/19/12 they are going for $265 on eBay. Me personally, I don’t much like white kicks, I really dont have the time or patience to keep them as clean as I would like. Thus, it’s ok if I don’t get a pair of these. I’ve still got my eyes on some Jordan 11’s-really in any color. But as I mentioned before, I need to make a big score before I can get them. Kinda’ like a little goal of mine. Gonna’ get some Space Jam or Concord 11’s (Yeah I know they have a lot of white on them, but the Patent is totally SWEET!) and hopefully a black or Green St. Pats Jeremy Lin Jersey-neither are out yet, but I have my eyes out for both colors! Here’s a nice pic of Kanye West Rockin’ some Retro 4’s-Man, this guy must have one of the best J’s collection around. And when are those Yeezy’s coming out? Hype is gonna’ disappear if it’s not soon.Me-I’ve got my eyes on the NikeFoamposite One Galaxy’s right now-those soles glow too and they are bad ass!
And here’s a nice picture of Marcus Jordan swishin’ and dimin’ in his own pair of Air Jordan retro 4 white Cements. During this game he had 17 points. It’s funny other than D-Wade and a few others, I don’t see to many people wearing J’s to actually play B-Ball much anymore, mostly we all wear them to go out to the mall, concerts and the clubs. Funny how things have changed. I actually never wear my J’s to play Ball-I tend to wear my 10 year old retro Penny’s-they seem to have the biggest bounce and best cushioning for the crackly cement court across the street from my pad.
You know what I like best about the 4’s in white is these were the shoes that were highlighted in Spike Lee’s movie, “Do The Right Thing” back in the day. Buggin’ Out who was usually pretty pissed off was wearing his nice, clean bright white J’s when they got scuffed by a bicycler. He huffed and puffed a bit, but than whipped out his toothbrush and took quick care of his scuff, bringing them back to the brand new look-the only LOOK you Rocked when you were wearing J’s back in the day. That was such a classic moment in the movie-If you’ve never seen it, rent or buy it and see the nostalgia of the infamous white 4’s. If you don’t have time to see the movie, here’s a quick excerpt from the scene: Buggin’Out: You almost knocked me down, man. the word is “excuse Me”. Clifton: Ah, Excuse me, I’m sorry. Buggin’Out: Not only did you knock me down, You stepped on my BRAND NEW WHITE AIR JORDANS I just bought and that all you can say is is “excuuuse me?” Clifton: What! Are you Serious? Buggin’Out: Yeah I’m serious…Now, If I get some 4’s, these are the one’s I’m gonna’ get-Black/Fire Red/Grey. Or I may wait for the Grey’s to come out again, I missed them last time by ONE day, they still had 9.5’s and 10.5’s but no 10’s the day I went to Niketown for my Grey/Maize.
We’ve procured another picture of some celebs rockin’ the still unreleased Air Jordan Retro 3’s in the Black/Cement Colorway. According to the Shoegame.com these babies don’t come out until Black Friday-November 25th. I’ve got some sort of obsession with these, but it may wear off a bit after seeing the new pictures below this writing. The black leather looks a bit hard, crinkly and uncomfortable. But last up close picture we saw, the leather was more Pebble looking not wrinkly, so who knows when they come out what kind of leather they’ll really have on them. And actually the Stealth grey 3’s are available now on Finishline.com, so I might just cop them. Grey is one color I don’t have any shoes in any way. And I already have the Retro 3 Black Cats which are so all black that I can even get away with wearing them to work. But they are starting to fall apart a bit. Oh Decisions, Decisions. If I could get anything, I still really want the Jordan 11’s. If the Knicks don’t play that night, I will stand in line for them-Unless its super cold in NYC. Aaaaah! These do look pretty nice..eh? What You gonna cop this year? What do you think is the hottest release for 2011? Jordan, Dunks, or maybe even the Deadmau5 kicks that you can’t even order from the puma.uk.com on-line store unless you have a Mailing address somewhere in Europe..yeah..I did attempt it..I tried to get a pair..the day they came out… and even tried to think of a mailing address in England that I could try and send them to-but I didnt think the guy at the hotel I stayed at would remember me… He’d probably just end up with a new pair of kicks!
Here’s the up close picture of the black/cement Jordan Retro 3’s from this site. (The shoegame.com)
