Back in April, a line wrapped around the block when Drake Tweeted a random address in Wynwood. After over an hour of waiting in line, we learned it was all just for a T-shirt.
When Bieber was in town in July, he took over a space at the top of a Lincoln Road parking garage to hawk clothes from his Purpose World Tour.
It seems that selling tickets just ain't enough for artists these days — not when there's hot, salty merchandise to be sold. So, Kanye West is joining in on the fun with a temporary pop-up store in the Design District this weekend at 160 NE 40th St. The store's hours will be Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. The Miami pop-up is one of 14 in the United States.
Yeezy already did this back in March in New York City — and was met with much success and very long lines. Items for sale included beanies and red sweaters/denim jackets emblazoned with his latest album's title. Back in the NYC shop, a basic T-shirt was going for around $40. Bomber jackets cost $350, and the store's most expensive item, a repurposed denim jacket, was selling for $400.
But can you really put a price on Kanye West?
Yes. Yes, you can. $400.
