Hatful of Hollow is sort of my personal blog where I just write weekly things I’ve been following. This is the second entry. It’s for paying members only.
Kanye West in the news

So when I hear that he’s making something for The Gap, my ears perk up. In “Inside the Making of Yeezy Gap” at the NYT, I learn that his partnership with the mass market apparel company, though, has not gone well. Who would’ve predicted that Kanye West of all people, though, would be unable to meet deadlines? Entire production lines abandoned?

All in jest, I probably will find something in this collection I buy and wear constantly.
