Here's what Kanye had to say about the upcoming release of his Pastelle clothing brand:
"I'm gonna start releasing some of the pieces online starting in January. The jacket from the AMA's, the Warrior hood that I wore at the Dior show and this one here. I actually designed this one and the jacket from the AMA's less than 3 weeks ago! I'm really happy with them! Sidebar: The Louis Sneakers are coming out REEEEETARDED and the Yeezy's drop in march. Sorry for the wait. I swear to you guys all I do is work on design when I get off stage. I want to and will be the real thing. I will not just be a "celebrity designer." Shit has to be good!!!"
Pieces are rumored to be released via an online store. Check back for more info after the jump.
