and Margiela, Vetements Raf... The list goes on. He bastardises everything, including the music he makes. But it will sell and make him ALOT of money. So who cares, he doesn't.

Kanye thought we´ll never notice vintage 90s Helmut Lang copies tossed in his "collection"...he thought wrong!

These bullet-proof vests, these army jumpers, these bomber jackets...Kanye dear, stop playing fashion designer. But you could open a thrift store instead! :-)

I think he needs to respect artistry and give his job to a real designer.

As usual with Kanye, it's very pretentious.
He needs to understand that before becoming a designer, you need to have a vision...A VISION, NOT A CONCEPT!
As Tom Ford said, you have to think "What i'm about? Who needs (in his case) a Kanye West piece?".

So, with his first two collections in Paris, he was inspired by the IT brands at the time. Fashion was about being sexy, minimalist and it was the return of Alaia on the Catwalk. So his first Paris collections were very Alaia & Balmain, Pucci...etc.

Now, since then, there's this huge 90's-early 00's revival. But, because Mr West want us to think that he is not a "celebrity designer", he is copying some of the most influencial designers of the 90's.

As a whole, this collection looks like the "Riot collection" of Raf.
The bulletproof vest? Helmut Lang circa 98
The oversized bombers? Helmut Lang/ Raf Simons circa 2002
The concept of the "nude body" is just Margiela...even with the boots and everything.
the rest is half Rick Owens, half Lang.
Even the palette is very Lang. From the pinks to the greens...

I'm tired of Kanye West. Seriously! He wants to be on Victoria's level? Work boy, work!
Seeing how bad his styling sessions with his wife are, i find it a bit amusing that he thinks that any woman will ever want to wear his stuff.

At least, this time, it will sell.

One more thing. Kanye has the celebrity status where he could probably just walk up to these guys Helmut, etc and ask.. is it ok? Do you think I'm doing it right. He can certainly have the tenacity to S**t on a pretty expectational musician at the Grammy's PUBLICLY but he cant just get the ok from the people he is ripping off. He probably needs to stop looking at style.com

The first thing that came to mind, oh the irony.

The funniest thing is seeing Anna Wintour´s pissed off expression at the show...hey wasn´t she the one who considered these two are fashion icons, as to put them in Vogue´s cover?? Now enjoy the show, Anna! LOL
