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.
