“The average celebrity designer– their fingers don’t get bloody. they don’t pick up needles. They don’t know how to sew. I can pin a little bit. I respect people who have taken their time to really learn and hone a craft”. – Kanye West
As an influencer of culture, Kanye West has channeled his energies through music, fashion, and cultural art. He has emerged from the stigma as a Rapper to become a genius through branding his ideas and evolving new fashion trends. Who can forget the statement he made at the 2015 New York Fashion Week? With grotesque, rugged and off the grid military inspired avant-garde fashion, West has merged silks, wools, and knitwear with the baggy 90s street wear to cross the luxury and urban lifestyles. You can get your first look of the Adidas Kanye West Yeezy Collection: Season One in the September issue of GQ. Don’t Be surprised to see Canadian Crooner, The Weeknd laced in the luxury brand, as to Ed Sheehan teased us a few months back about a Yeezy X The Weeknd collab.
