- By Bossip Staff

All types of shyte are jumping off during Fashion Week. Kanye West has just unveiled a new couture venture:

Like Jay-Z and Sean “Diddy” Combs before him, Kanye West is looking to expand his hip-hop empire to include fashion. But leave it to Kanye to do it in a big way. The rapper revealed that he’s signed on to design a line of men’s shoes for Louis Vuitton. He’s also working on his own signature line of womens wear (not Vuitton), which is set to launch in the fall. Kanye’s had a good relationship with the luxe French brand. Back in June, he performed at the opening of Takashi Murakami’s lastest show, which included special Louis Vuitton bags. “I grew up with the Louis look, you know,” he told the Guardian paper at last week’s Vuitton runway show in Paris. “I just love the style.”

Louis Vuitton eh? Classy indeed. Kanye’s got interesting taste, we’re curious to see how these kicks turn out.

    Kanye West is spreading his wings!

    Can’t wait to see what the design house and rapper come up with.

    DMX was arrested again today in Arizona. He showed up for a court hearing, but had a bench warrant out for his arrest, so they busted him. Threepeat!

    X was busted June 27 after he allegedly tried to buy drugs from an undercover officer. He was also busted on June 23, May 9 and May 7.

  • K-ten

    i dont like kanye, but i do congradulate him on making it big with the clothing industry with Vuitton. now they see blacks have come back strong in fashion, they want more of our business.

  • Jahpson

    I love Kanye’s style and I love Louis Vuitton.

    If only my man would allow me to get some shoes for him, I would so get a pair of whatever funky design he has yet to release!!

    My baby says that buying your significant other shoes allows them to walk out of their life.
