Kanye West’s weekend pop-up store in Boston draws big crowds

BOSTON (AP) — Kanye West’s pop-up clothing store has opened in downtown Boston.

The “Pablo” store is one of 21 that opened worldwide for three days only. Visitors camped out overnight and hundreds waited in long lines ahead of Friday’s opening on Boylston Street in the city’s Back Bay neighborhood.

The temporary storefront sells clothing inspired by West’s latest album, “The Life of Pablo.” Items for sale at other stores have included a $400 military jacket and a $50 baseball cap.

The stores have opened in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami and New York, among other cities. Overseas locations include Amsterdam, Berlin, Cape Town, London and Singapore.

Boston’s store closes Sunday at 6 p.m. The rapper and fashion designer’s “The Life of Pablo” tour hits Boston on Sept. 3.
