Uh oh. Looks like there’s going to be a big, Kanye-sized hole in the Paris Fashion Week schedule this season, because it’s just been announced that Yeezy will not be showing a collection in the City of Lights next week after all.
A representative from West’s public relations firm Karla Otto confirmed to WWD that, contrary to previous rumors, no runway show will be held. They declined, however, to comment on whether this also means his fashion line is no more. In any case, you can probably rest easy knowing Kanye will still be popping up in the front row alongside girlfriend Kim Kardashian — tweets between Kim and Mugler‘s Nicola Formichetti all but confirm she’ll be gracing us all with her presence at his show. So even if we don’t have another season of absurdly expensive sandals, Givenchy-esque ensembles, or go-cart races to look forward to, the week won’t be totally Kanye-less.
And speaking of Paris Fashion Week, we wonder if Kim will bring her new kitten Mercy along so Choupette Lagerfeld has a playmate? Though on second thought, Choupette’s probably far too busy hanging out with Joshua Jackson and playing muse to daddy Karl. Maybe next time!
