Pastelle by Kanye West
all photos from hypebeast.
kanye wore the letterman jacket last night at the american music awards.
the grey hoodie with the patches he wore at the last Fashion week in Paris.
the magazine pics are from Vman magazine where the line was previewed.
it was rumoured that kim jones was helping him with the line (he styled the Vman feature)
this is the official website PastTellMuseum.com
its not live yet, but it should be soon.

i wouldnt wear this stuff probably, but i think kanye means well. i think he wants to learn more about the ins-and-outs of running a line. he definitely has an apreciation for fashion and he went to art school for a few years before dropping out.
last week he said in a radio interview that he wants to "intern" for his friend raf simons or for someone at louis vuitton.

yeah the hoodie with the multiple stripes definitely has a Kim Jones kind of feel to it. I'm not too keen on the giant lettering on the back of the bomber but some of the stuff shot for VMan looks interesting like the heavy leather cut into a blazer (I think that's what it is?) and I do like the hoodie. It'll be interesting to see what direction he takes this. Thus far, I'm not entirely convinced....

Though I'm not too fond of this whole celebrity-turned-designer page in fashion history, my bets are on Kanye that he'd be able to deliver something substantial..If he puts as much heart, soul & integrity into his line as he does his music, well, who am I to complain? But we'll see...

Not for me, thank you. One one hand, he seems like one of the most passionate in the biz, on the other hand - he must die for introducing shutter-shades as a trend.

Maybe if all of the cool fashion designers suddenly decide to ditch fashion under the pretense that it isn't cool anymore, these celebrities will stop deluding themselves into believing that fashion wants or needs them.

He should stick to what he does best which is music, not designer that's for sure. And his stuff is nothing new. There are a lot of other no-name designs that look similar to those clothing.

The fact that he wants to be an intern is hilarious.

^ Do you honestly see Kanye, or any celebrity for that matter, doing the gruntwork involved in a fashion internship? Maybe he'll do the celeb version of an internship, you know, sit in on everything the designer does, voice his opinion on designs at meetings, or if he's lucky, get to put his name on a limited edition bag or something.

But I have quite a bit of trouble imagining him doing actual fashion intern work like spec sheets, hunting down a specific fabric swatch in a huge piles of swatches, or doing last minute beadwork on samples for the show.
