Yeezus has spoken and he’s launched a diatribe against Louis Vuitton for, you guessed it, their failure to recognize his genius. During a recent interview with 92.3 NOW radio, Kanye West revealed that he tried to arrange a meeting with the French fashion house this past October during Paris Fashion Week:
“What happened was while I was out in Paris I wanted to meet with the head of Louis Vuitton, he said I don’t understand why we need to meet with you. I said, ‘let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.’ Everybody in New York City right now don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you want to meet with me? Now do you want to meet with me? Influence. They think that I don’t realize my power.”
Despite being in the midst of bidding adieu to Marc Jacobs, and trying to wrangle down Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton was understandably busy, but to deny the Louis Vuitton don? That’s just bad business.
Louis Vuitton has yet to release a statement, so we’re just going to keep waiting for Ye’s inevitable Twitter tirade to keep us in the loop.
