Rapper and music producer Kanye West has broadened his career by launching his own fashion line. The musician turned designer made his debut at Paris Fashion Week where he pleasantly surprised with a fashion collection destined for the stylish urban woman. Kanye’s fresh high end collection definitely captured attention but the designer still has a long way to prove himself in the fashion industry.
Kanye’s vision of fashion for the spring summer 2012 season was a mix of casual-chic, streetwear styles and ultra seductive styles, characteristics given through motocross jackets and pants featuring zipper details, deep cleavages and fur. From form fitting midi dresses to stylish skirts, leather pants, flirty sweatshirts and jackets, everything managed to fall into place. Because Kanye West’s style exudes hip hop, soft influences of the streetwear style can be observed through the gold nameplate necklaces and fur pieces, but nothing too overpowering.
The flirty feminine style of the outfits was underlined through some of the hottest hues of the season: black, white, royal blue, nude/pink and metallic silver and gold. The colors were beautifully put together to accentuate the modern style of the collection, so take a peek at the stylish designs and pick your favorites!
After his debut, Kanye organized a party where he celebrated his first collection among friends where, according to WWD, he stated that: “This is my first collection. Please be easy. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity s*&^. I don’t f&^$ with celebrities. I f&^$ with the creatives in this room, the amazing people who spend every day of their life trying to make the world a more beautiful place.”
