T-minus 10 days until Kanye unveils his DEBUT FASHIONZ during Paris Fashion Week! We’ll take any details we can get, and we’re grateful Grazia did a little snooping regarding the top secret project.
According to their anonymous source “the collection was put together in Turnmills, an enormous now-defunct nightclub in London, by a crack team of Central Saint Martin’s fashion graduates under the direction of designers Louise Goldin, and Dean Quinn (both ex-CSM students themselves), and with the likely consultation of Louise Wilson, head of MA Fashion at Central Saint Martin’s”. Well then!
Said source calls the whole thing “excruciating” thanks to Kanye’s indecisiveness, confirms Christine Centenera‘s involvement, and calls the pieces “extraordinarily expensive; some of it is virtually unproduceable”. The clothes are apparently “ivory and gold” and “seemingly based on Samurai, with lots of sporty garments, but in luxury fabrics, with embellishment, embroidery – Japanese stuff – gold chainmail, that sort of sports-luxe thang, and unsurprisingly, lots of hoods, baseball/biker jacket shapes”.
Whew! Just 10 days, you guys…
