My knowledge of fashion doesn’t extend past Macy’s sale rack. I know the name of the store, but the names on the clothes – not always. I’m still going to take a look at Kanye’s second line and see what’s up. Unlike the Lil Wayne’s and Fabolous’ of the world, Kanye has targeted womens wear and crafted something more than baby t’s and denim shorts. Wait. Do people still wear denim shorts? I can’t pay my kid to put a pair on these days. See, I told you I didn’t know much.
Kanye had plenty of friends in the audience including Kim Kardashian, Swizz Beats and Sean Combs. Waka Flocka was also there, I assumed as a PETA plant, but not a single drop of paint from this guy. I’m sure the PETA powers that be will have something to say about that. Kanye’s support staff seemed to like what he presented, but the fashion experts didn’t. Some critics believe Kanye stole his style from Givenchy. Others complained about the materials he used like crocodile and the fur from lamb fetuses. Killing pregnant sheep for the fur of their unborn is creepy and gross, but if you are going to do it, at least create something worth all the death and dismemberment. Most of Kanye’s fur outfits looked like road overkill.
There were tight black leather pants, mad cool biker jackets, and chicks with whips. It didn’t look goth as much as it looked dominatrix-like. Most of the pencil skirts had these odd flairs at the bottom. That’s a no-no for curvy girls, but most of Kanyes models looked a little hungry so it worked for them. The camel colored dress with attached cape looked unfinished and the tight black dress with poofy rings around the bottom made the model look like a topiary. Don’t get me wrong. I like topiaries; I just don’t want to dress like one. There was a leather dress with an open back and two straps that started at the shoulders and connected to a thick belt. It looked like a backwards cummerbund or one of those back support things that dudes who lift things all day wear. I did like the boots though.
In conclusion kids, Kanye’s clothes were better constructed than in his last outing. I’m not a fan of crocodile turtlenecks, but the jackets were great. The fur back packs and shoes could make Kanye a respected accessory designer. He might want to leave the rest of the outfit to the professionals.
