Kanye West debuted his second collection at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday. Celebs came out to support such as Kim K, Swizzy, Alicia Keys, Common, P.Diddy, and a lot more. Kanye had a lot written on this due to the harsh criticism of last years show. His “ill-fitting” clothing criticism wounded the rapper so much that he banned editors of previewing his new line at the last-minute, according to Eric Wilson at the New York Times.
“I don’t know about this,” he said. “I got treated unfairly by the press last time. Why would I want to do this?”
Christina Binkley of the Wall Street Journal criticized West’s latest collection for being too “Givenchy-esque” but gave the rapper credit: “This Kanye collection is a massive improvement.”
This line proved a lot of editors wrong with the stunning furs, slinky dresses, furry peplums, and bad ass leather pieces. Oh, did I mention a complete fur backpack? I need that in my life!
Overall, I thought his Fall Collection was very much over the top and glamorous with the exquisite furs and tight leather pieces. Statement pieces for a woman. Very similar to his own style, but I can appreciate it. He improved as a designer and I really enjoyed this collection, looking forward to more from Mr. West.
