Kanye West Announces 21 Worldwide Life of Pablo Pop-Up Stores
Big news for Kanye West fans all over the world! The enterprising rapper took to Twitter Wednesday night with the news that 21 temporary Life of Pablo merchandise stores will be popping up all over the globe starting Friday, Aug. 19.
West offered little information about his worldwide takeover, sharing only a list of cities set to host the shops. "21 Pablo stores worldwide this weekend. Locations here," he tweeted along with a link to a map of the locations.
According to the list, the U.S. will host 14 stores, with New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Houston, and his hometown of Chicago among them. In Europe, Amsterdam, London, and Berlin will all be graced with the stores, while Capetown, South Africa; Sydney, Australia; and Singapore represent the store's farthest outposts. West is expected to share more information about the stores on his website soon, and you can always count on him for Twitter updates as well.
West, 39, first got bitten by the pop-up bug in March after a wildly successful Pablo pop-up store in New York City drew impossibly long lines.
The 21-time Grammy winner is also expected to make his triumphant return to New York Fashion Week next month, kicking off the week with the debut of his Yeezy Season 4 collection on Sept. 7.
