love what im seeing- people in this thread find any reason to hate. it's modern & clean, the fur is such a defiant move on kanye's part- it's an accurate translation of his attitude- he does what he wants. even if it's fur in the spring.

the collection is modern, well conceptualized & a damn good effort for a first season.

most of the critics were not happy with the fitting TBH i always thought Paris was the last remaining exclusive fashion city but with celebrity takeover who knows who will be next. I love the shoes and the styling of the show though

Definitely some OVERT references here. (Celine & Balmain very overt)

What is the deal? Now we have Gwen Stefani, Puff Daddy, Beyonce and Kanye designing. Am I missing anyone? Do all rock/pop/rap stars think they have an inner designer? On the flip side, do we have any designers cutting records? Not that I can think of.

So what is with the rock-star-cum-designer thang? I am curious.

This collection isn't as horrid as the Beyonce one imo, but it is so derivative, which may be the (partial) explanation.

ANYhow..,

It's like a very cheap Celine. It could've been way worse, however.

This is nowhere near as bad as people are making it out to be. If no one knew it was designed by Kanye it would probably be getting some faint praise for not being run-of-the-mill.

Obviously people are gonna bash Kanye but that is nothing new....even the most acclaimed designers get harsh critique. However, this is his FIRST collection and it isn't too bad at all....i think he came correctly in places but also missed the mark in others. He will learn and there is room for growth!

What i don't like however is people who are super quick to bash the line and label it "ghetto"

Excuse me, I had to go without my beloved Louise Goldin show for this???
But if you get Katy Eary, Louise Goldin, Guiseppe Zanotti and god knows who, how the hell could you come up with this?
But I think the worst thing in this collection are not the clothes - it's the styling. It's badly styled with bad hair. Could've been much better presented with a better stylist. He should get rid of this Hapers Bazaar Australia woman.

but it isnt original... every designer he has probably worn in the past year is in this collection. Alexander Wang, Celine, Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, and Balmain are all referenced a little too much. Plus, unless his intention was to make the models legs all look bigger, the pants fit horribly

i only enjoy this look, and it's for the styling

ill take this over Mugler though
