Camille Augustin / January 21, 2014

When he’s not sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week, Kanye West spents a good chunk of time, discussing fashion and design. On the French talk show Le Grand Journal, ‘Ye and A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou discussed their second style collaboration (their first was unveiled in July and broke the Internet) and why Mr. West performs in a Maison Martin Margiela mask.

The pair has since crafted eight pieces for their upcoming collection, with Touitou stating they’re doing much more together. “Sometimes I had the difficult task of holding back Kanye’s creativity but we always found a middle-ground,” he said.

Re: designer mask, the “Blood on the Leaves” MC said, “It helped very much ‘cause it gave me the opportunity to perform without being a celebrity.”
