The 39-year-old GRAMMY winner, who is apparently feeling well enough to travel, was snapped in New York City's SoHo neighborhood, still wearing his new bleach blond hairdo.
A source close to Kanye tells ET that, "Kanye is in [New York] for meetings about his fashion line. They are looking for a new studio for his line as well."
West first displayed the new 'do in a photo shared on Instagram last week, showing the Life of Pablo rapper attending the Rick Owens "Furniture" exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
The Instagram pic was the first time West had been spotted in public since he was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center on Nov. 21.
Though the Kardashian family has stayed relatively tight-lipped about West since his hospitalization, ET recently learned that the topic will be discussed on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
