Kid Cudi has been known to dabble in the fashion world. The Bape connoisseur is taking things to the next level creatively with the launch of his first collaboration with A.P.C., which released on Thursday (Feb. 21). The INTERACTION#1 collection is now available at the End ClothingGraduate, and A.P.C. online shops. 

The collection boasts 10 pieces in total, including an assortment of splattered t-shirts, two pairs of jeans, a red motorycle jacket, striped long sleeves, cardigans, overalls and different colored sneakers. The debut INTERACTION series prices start at $110 for a t-shirt and go all the way up to a hefty $2,495 for the jacket. 

Cudder follows in the foosteps of his longtime collaborator, Kanye West, who partnered with A.P.C. for multiple collections starting in 2013. The French ready-to-wear brand's founder, Jean Touitou, explained to Complex that he was inspired to work with Cudi after listening to the rapper's 2018 collab with West, Kids See Ghosts

"After I heard [Kids See Ghosts], I felt [Kid Cudi] had something extremely strong but fragile at the same time. I, myself, happen to be a fragile person," he said. "I am fragile even if A.P.C. is strong. So I said, 'Why don’t I try to reach out to him?' He tried to reach out to me 10 years ago and I didn't respond because I had no idea what I could do."
