Kanye West fans have flocked from around the world to snap up limited edition merchandise at his first pop-up shop. And one of the rapper’s biggest supporters even queued for 15 HOURS at the store in London’s Old Street. That’s real dedication to Yeezy.
Carlos Rico, 19, from Essex, joined fans to brave the rain and was at the front of the queue when the shop opened. “I’m a big Kanye West fan and a big fan of fashion. So Kanye West and fashion in London? You’ve just got to go,” he told the Press Association. “I wanted to be at the front of the queue to make sure I get my stuff.
“I just love his music and everything he stands for. Kanye is like Marmite, you love him or you hate him.”
Kim Kardashian’s husband announced on Wednesday that 21 shops would open in a number of locations around the world to sell products supporting his incredible album, The Life of Pablo.
