Not to be outdone by Diddy, Kanye is tapping Balmain‘s Christophe Decarnin to design costumes for his upcoming, sure-to-melt-your-face-off tour. Rumor has it Yeezy is asking for “seventies-centric pantsuits, cutaway coats, and gilded jeans” from Balmain’s fall 2010 collection to be remade just for him.
Though the rapper has a total crush on Lanvin, it makes sense that he’d want something more theatrical for his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy tour. Kanye’s been wearing Balmain for some time now, but he’ll be swapping their hoodies and jeans for brocade and fur. And did we mention it sounds like he wants pieces from the women’s fall 2010 collection? Like we said, face melting. In the best way. If only he would wear that gold Balmain dress…
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
