Mr West is a terrific artist with the real vision with his music. But he is a miserable designer.

He had 6 efforts now:
-2 terrible parisian shows who were terribly inspired by the hot designers at the time.
-2 collection with APC composed of basics and copies of designers's clothes he was wearing at the time.
-2 Collections (this one is not in collaboration with adidas) of basics/underwears copying greatest hits of Haider Ackermann, Rick Owens, Raf Simons from 2002 and Helmut Lang.

Two things remain consistent:
-his determination to be a leading force in fashion design.
-His inability to create desirable clothes, to elevate the fashion conversation and to have a real vision.

At least, he can design interesting shoes...

^That would be great if he did that, but we know that's not how it's gonna go down. He's going to go on a childish rant like he normally does, doing everything he can to persuade her to like it. Didn't he do that with some editor last season?

Finally, someone has said it how it is. Cathy is spot on, Kanye has fooled the fashion industry with the hype. and that's all it is, hype. The fools who buy into it are just as foolish as the one who go buy it.

And this begs the question as to why this is the case. How the industry can be fooled by something so blatantly terrible that it is hard to subjectively justify it is beyond me.

^^^ Are people fooled...? Or, are they just seeing how he's got the Mean Girls on his side, and quietly going along with it?

It's the power of the corporation; the empire of Adidas and Conde Nast to align with the Kanye brand that has many just going along-- particularly if to speak against this mess would burn important bridges. Just looking at the seating arrangement of Anna always front and center at his shows, like the Don, with another brand Kim by her side, along with ruling brands Riccardo and Lorde for credibility, and surrounded by their disciples Kendall, the Smiths, etc. It's an imposing posse of the rulers and their kids that serve to remind everyone who's supporting Kanye's whims-- so they better watch what they say. No idea how Seth Meyer got in that gang...

It doesn't really matter that nothing of his designs is remotely original, fresh or interesting. We've seen it all done before and done better. And did it matter that his "designs" for A.P.C. was simply him writing his name over the most basic of garments? His A.P.C. sold out, and with an empire like Adidas backing him here-- and with another leader of Conde Nast Anna backing him also which to the general public will give him high fashion creds-- although Anna is more Wall Street than high fashion, he's going to sell sneakers, tees, and hoodies to the masses. That's what the corporations are banking on. And that's all that matters to them.
