If you are in New York this weekend you might want to check out Kanye West's Pablo pop-up store at 83 Wooster Street in Soho. The store will be open Friday, March 18 from 4-8 p.m., Saturday, March 19 and Sunday, March 20 from 12-8pm. 

West took to Twitter to make the announcement. 


According to Billboard, In November 2013, West stuck a Yeezy pop-up store in New York City in support of his Yeezus tour and LP of the same name. He also set up shop on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles next to DASH, the boutique owned by his in-laws, the Kardashian-Jenner clan. 

West caused a storm during New York Fashion Week last month when he hired out Madison Square Garden and hosted a Yeezy Season 3 fashion show-cum-The Life of Pablo listening party.

The reddish-maroon beanies and caps retailed for $40, while hoodies that carried the phrase "I Feel Like Pablo" sold for $90.

Runway shows are notoriously elitist affairs but the rapper-turned-entrepreneur flouted tradition by opening the doors to anyone who could afford the $160 admission. It's thought that 1,800 people attended. 

Additionally, the show was streamed live via Tidal to over 20 million people around the world, allowing fans globally to react to the collection and music.

No word yet on whether the tee shirts with a rendition of his deceased mother on the front and his wife Kim's deceased father on the back will be on sale.
