Kanye West - Kanye West debuts final A.P.C. collection

Kanye West has debuted his final collection for French clothing brand A.P.C.

The 'Bound 2' rapper and fashion designer turned to military style for inspiration when working with the brand's founder Jean Touitou to design 14 different pieces which will go on sale on July 17.

The clothing ranges in price from $90 for a white T-shirt to $2,865 for a fur-lined parka coat.

Kanye visited Jean's military archives in Paris, France before the pair began working on the new line.

Jean told Style.com: ''You know, when you design something, you have to start with something, so that's where we were, at my big archives to start with something.

''It's not the process for designing a conceptual collection, but that's why when we said we want a parka, it's nice to see a parka from this army, and this army and that army and make your own design of it.''

The collection also includes a black ski mask made from Australian wool, as Kanye is a fan of the masks and wears them both on and off stage.

Jean claims the star was such a perfectionist when it came to creating the pieces that he decided to change everything at the last minute.

He said: ''What happened at the end is exactly what he does to his own records ... like when it's something he makes, and ten days before it drops, and then he wants to start from scratch.''
