Kanye West on the GQ cover

Last week Kanye West's latest GQ cover was officially revealed, where the fashion icon graces the August 2014 issue of the storied publication. This marks the second time West has covered the magazine, the first being December 2007.The cover and accompanying editorial were shot by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by GQ creative director Jim Moore. The resulting outfits were a collaboration between two of menswear's most prominent figures, not just West himself as erroneously reported.

"It's not about having a lot of clothes," West tells the magazine. "It's about a few favorites." Throughout the editorial, he switches up classic 6-inch wheat Timberland boots with crisp adidas sneakers like the Stan Smith and the Pure Boost, one of the best sneakers we've seen this year. Other notable pieces include the Airport Sweater and white Kanye Jeans from his latest A.P.C. collaboration, leather pants from En Noir, and the Wes Lang-customized leather jacket first seen at his nuptials with Kim Kardashian.
