Kanye West announced on Thursday (March 17) that he’d be opening up a pop-up shop for three days, from Friday 18 to Sunday 20. It was in New York City’s Soho district, on Wooster Street. For Kanye fans in the city it was a huge event.
From Friday to Sunday there was a huge, round-the-block line that forced police to shut the street down. Kanye himself was the first to note it, and much of the news about the event focussed on its immense popularity.

Once you got inside, though, it was surprisingly spacious, and pretty arty, too. Customers were let in slowly to the large space and some were reportedly limited to two items each after some products started selling out.
The walls had loads of projections of wolves and other stuff to tie in with Kanye’s lyrics.

This photo is a pretty accurate summary of the feeling fans had when they got out with a piece of the prized merch.
Some of it is good enough for Kanye too – he wore this tee in February, paying tribute to his mother, Donda West, and his late father-in-law, Robert Kardashian.
But of course, it was pretty expensive – tees were about $40 and bomber jackets were $350. Price-wise this kid had it right.
