After the success of his first three “The Life of Pablo” stores, Kanye West has brought the merchandise to new cities around the world.
The announcement was first made by Vogue Magazine on Wednesday, followed by a tweet by Kanye confirming the new stores.

Each city has it’s own color scheme with a variety of options including short sleeve, long sleeve, crew neck sweatshirts, hooded-sweatshirts, army camo jackets, bomber jackets and hats.
The prints included “I Feel Like Pablo,” “We young and we alive,” Woke up and felt the vibe,” “Who your real friends we all came from the bottom,” “Any rumor you ever heard about me is true and legendary,” “Perfect,” “I love you like Kanye loves Kanye” and “We on an Ultralight Beam this is a God dream” writing.
In Los Angeles, David Beckham made an appearance with his sons and Scooter Braun to stock up on Pablo merchandise.
Also in Los Angeles, TMZ is reporting that a fan got the chance to speak with Kanye on the phone after he asked Scooter to put someone at the shop on with him. The fan, Cesar said that Kanye agreed to look at some of his designs and offered him tickets to the upcoming Saint Pablo Tour.
After purchasing their merch fans took the time to take photos by the city logos placed in each store — with the exception of Houston. Remember to tag us on Instagram or Twitter if you visited a Pablo shop in your city!
