Kanye West is known for many things. His most popular attribute seems to be his ego. Then comes his music. Behind that, has to be fashion. He is obsessed with it. He partnered with Gap at one point, designed shoes for LouisVuitton and has been studying with Marc Jacobs for a while now. All this was clearly preparation for his clothing line.
He’s launched a line before; the now defunct Pastelle. Now he’s at it again with his new line called DW by Kanye West. This line debuted at Paris Fashion Week last week. The show boasted a front row of many big name designers and celebs. Everyone was eager to see what Mr. West had come up with. My favorite has to be this dress.
The rest of the stuff doesn’t really work for me. Then again, I look at things from the perspective of where the heck would I wear it. The black dress could at least be a date night dress. A very sexy date night dress! Here are a few of the other looks.
The show got a lot of good reviews though, of course not everyone was in love with it. I say it was a good showing for his true first time out of the gate. Hoping it gets better with time. He was apparently very involved – choosing fabrics, designers and models. From what I’ve read, he really wants to be taken seriously when it comes to fashion. He’s certainly been putting in some work behind the scenes to prove himself. We’ll see. What do you think of Kanye’s clothes?
