The entire damn world are more than aware of the media’s bad romance #noGAGA . My good ol’ best friend (in my delusional mind) Kanye West has been canoodling with Kim Kardashian. It appears that these 2 are inseparable. To be completely honest, I have no satisfaction of liking Kim Kardashian. Matter of fact, its a strong dislike. Some would ask why? Well I could probably write a book as to why, but who am I do such a thing #kanyeshrug. I don’t know this lady from Adam and Eve; however, one thing I can not take away from the lady is she sure does know how to sell a look!
They are definitely new “It” couple. The skepticism of them lasting is beyond us. One thing for sure, she better not be on some other shit (i.e. ulterior motives). We Yeezy fans will find you haha! #runtelldat
Despite what has been said from fashion critics, Hip Hop/Fashion Icon Kanye West has been determined for to eat their turds! There is nothing greater than showing improvement from your previous work. Kanye’s fall/winter collection has proved to be a perfect example. With ensembles majority in all black, the focus on detail will leave an undeniable towards any one whose seen the collection. . There were beautiful textures of butter smooth leather jackets, tops and trousers along with extravagant furs and dope heels.
Judging from the collection’s noir emphasis, it would not surprise me if there was some inspiration from Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci. Kanye has really been promoting the Tisci’s aesthetic for quite some time now. There has been rumors he helped out with the collection. There is no hating whether if he did or not. If you are going to get help, you will ask one of the best!
I am very confident people are going to give a much more warming review towards this collection. Its growth is purely inevitable! Remind you the first collection was not necessarily bad; rather, it was nothing innovative as if they were picked from various designer’s collections.
I am happy to see the evolve of my idol’s work. There is nothing any one can change the Kanye’s perception on anything he’s passionate about. That’s what make the collection special! A slam from critics delivering a knockout collection as such can sweep one-off their feet! It’s like a fighter determined to deliver a specific strike. Even if you choose to knock him out, he’s going to at least accomplish his goal and that is what exactly he has done here!
Throughout the years, it has been completely evident Kanye West’s extreme interest in fashion. Branding himself as a style icon, tastemaker, and visionary was not an easy task for a hip hop artist to break barriers into the industry on a high level. Fortunately, Yeezy is featured in VOGUE for the first time in the March 2012 article “Tisci’s Time.”
Kanye appears along Givenchy designer Ricardo Tisci and his other famous muses, including Liya Kibede, Liv Tyler, Karolina Kurkova and Florence Welch. It has been widely known about their chemistry work from being seen at all his shows, designs,of the Givenchy brand and tapped Tisci to design the cover art for his last collaborative album, “Watch The Throne.” So it would have been very appropriate to accommodate him alongside Tisci . Although, I have been curious what happened towards his friendship with Marc Jacobs, but that is just me.
In fashion, last year showcased some ups and downs for Kanye West. Although he reshaped the archetypes of hip hop culture regards to sound, fashion, trend setting, etc., his DW by Kanye West‘s womenswear collection was ripped apart from fashion critics, bloggers, haters, etc. Needless to say, Kanye is seeking out to make sure they gonna “eat their words” this year. I assume he is totally aware of the expectations required based on his aesthetic for fashion/design.
As an honest fan, I had my thoughts about the collection (was not bad, but didnt fully reflect the women in past/present life nor fashion forward); however, when you come across a person with integrity the size of the universe, they will make sure their statement will be heard! So with that being said, Kanye opens a new twitter account for his brand,
@dwbykanye . The account was recently made, which is going to give people either something good or find something bad to say.
The dude is a fucking genius!! Despite what people may think, he always going to be the topic of discussion. His strategic tactics has indeed penetrated through pop culture. From his rants and sick garments he rocks, its inevitable to anticipate what happens next!
It has been reported the highly anticipated sneaker, Nike Air Yeezy (The sneakers of Kanye West) is schedule to launch March 24th, 2012. I don’t know about you guys, but its time to save some change before they drop!
The 1st edition Air Yeezy’s swept every shoe store they’ve entered. People are still being sold to the highest bidder on ebay. These will be no exception!
The NBA stars have been showing a perfect attendance to New York Fashion week, but where was Yeezy? This week there has been alot of discussion going on in the media regards to Kanye West not being a main figure attending New York fashion week. Known for his incredible style and taste for aesthetics, this is not a usual thing to witness or hear. Kanye always makee fashionable statement while being the celebrity people love to talk about. Like the VMAs, people are eagerly anticipating what Kanye has up his sleeve. The truth is we don’t know.
However, there are speculation Mr. West will have a slot to showcase his debut collection at Paris Fashion Show, according to Harper’s Bazzaar Australia. The women’s collection will be shown on October 1st approx. 9 A.M. (hopefully that is EST). With the help of a fashion editor from Harper’s Bazaar, Christine Centenera, who will be guiding the aspiring designer as a consultant. Honestly right now this is hearsay because last time it was Louise Wilson (presidident of the MA fashion course in Central St. Martins).
The truth is no one cares any longer! Shifting stories of what is going to be in featured is highly skeptical. For example, Would the collection be appealing in regards to other demographics. We all know he has a way of exhibiting his material! Is the women’s collection gonna provide a retro vibe or is going to have some Drapy ancient Greek inspired gowns and Motif prints like Versace (come to think of it, WTF happened to pastelle????). Judging fro his aesthetics, I would not be surprised if he is trying to be like the black Alexander McQueen. At least give us a sneak peek lol!!
This video show here features one of Kanye’s style director (s), Virgil Abloh. As the co-founder of Chicago’s high end ubran store, RSVP gallery, he takes the time to give out his perspective regards to style and design.
For those who either don’t or didn’t know, anyone in Kanye’s camp has a specific purpose. You really think he would have a group of leeching off his success? Please! Peep ya boy out in this video!
This is the luxiourous cover of the highly-anticipated hip hop album, Watch The Throne, with Kanye West and Jay-z. The design was made from Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci and I must say that its hella dope. Scheduled to be release on August 2nd.
R.S.V.P. Gallery of Chicago will be releasing a limited edition scarves by M/M Paris retailing at $300.00 a piece. The scarf consists with the images (painted by George Condo) seen on Kanye West’s latest album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Images features, “Ballerina“, “Power“, “Face“, “Priest” and the infamous “Phoenix” painting. The first time looking at the scarves I instantly fell in love with each and everyone of them! Of course each one possess its own personality, but $300 is pretty steep for one scarf.
The only way you really would like to give the true effect from the image above is by purchasing at least (=$600). With only a 100 per print are being made, they will sell pretty well. Its hip hop and high fashion. I would love to have me a few, but there is always some other time! The store is already accepting pre orders as we speak.. They will be release only at RSVP Gallery on May 9th, 2011
This is what you all waiting for ain’t it?! Rumors have been surfing Kanye West was wearing the Nike Air Yeezy 2′s in Robert Rodriquez’s short film, “The Black Mamba” featuring Kobe Bryant. Recently Mr. West performed at Cochella music festival in California with the next big thing in sneakers. Unfortunately I was unabled to grab the first 3 pairs; NO More!! These bad ones will be in my possession soon once the date is released! Stay tuned on the pursuit of the Air Yeezy 2. #roadtrip
Those who have follow the blog within the past few months would be aware my post of Kanye West. Many Fashion bloggers post him only based on the imagery, but I like to take a different approach. Although image is everything, but seeking to find inspiration for people is perhaps greater. For example, Mr. West has attempted to take his love for fashion to another level by enrolling to Saints Martins College (a fashion grad school in London).
Unfortunately he was not granted to attend. Followed by disappointed attempts to attend to the Alexander McQueen and (Ironically) the Balmain show, he does not let that determine his fate in the world of fashion. It is not easy for a person to be black, straight, and be a hip-hop artist to cast the spotlight within the entire fashion universe. I consider this situation like inthe movie, “The Cookbook” . You have a brotha who moves into this suburban estate, but based on his demographic he is not entirely welcomed. I am not saying this is the case, but this road is not as straightforward one would think!
Basically what I am saying is when you are in the pursuit of being GREATer, there will be greater obstacles in the way. To a small degree, you would denied the privilege of certain great opportunities. Having the determination fused with integrity shall over those obstacles. Its not easy being fashion all the time and its certainly not easy being great!
