Cancel whatever you were doing this weekend: Kanye West's Pablo pop-up clothing store is coming to Portland.
Earlier this evening, West announced via his Twitter account that temporary shops carrying his Pablo line of merchandise, designed in collaboration with Los Angeles-based clothing designer Cali Thornhill DeWitt, would open in cities around the world for the weekend of August 19th. Portland is one of those cities, joining the ranks of international centers like Amsterdam, Singapore, Sydney and New York City.
For those seeking to snag a piece of West's clothing, expect high demand. The original The Life of Pablo pop up shop opened in New York City in March of this year to crowds that had waited for over 24 hours to purchase West's Gothic-script emblazoned merchandise. West reportedly sold over a million dollars worth of streetwear over the course of the weekend.
UPDATE: Portland, Shmortland: West's pop-up shop will be at the Clackamas Town Center (12000 SE 82nd Ave., Happy Valley) this morning from 10 am. Hours for the weekend are Friday-Saturday, 10 am-9 pm and Sunday, 11 am-7 pm.
