This isn’t Kanye’s first foray into the world of pop-ups. His debut retail shop coincided with his Yeezus tour in 2013 and he ignited a fashion frenzy earlier this year with his Life of Pablo pop-up in NYC. This time around shops will carry merchandise unique to each location; tees and hoodies will feature the name of each city spelled out in Cali Thornhill DeWitt’s gothic “Pablo” script.
In other Ye news, the infamous rapper is set to shake up the fashion world again. It was announced yesterday that his Yeezy Season 4 fashion show will take place on September 7th, the first day of New York Fashion Week. Although the time and place of the presentation have yet to be confirmed, the event may conflict with Tom Ford who is booked for 7pm on the same day.
