Kanye West’s much anticipated and talked about womenswear collection was just shown in Paris. And reactions have been mixed – from The Times’ Lisa Armstrong’s somewhat harsh ‘Stick to the Day Job’, to The Cut’s Amy Odell kindly weighing up the positives and the negatives of the clothes. The New York Times article ‘Kanye West, Designer (Yawn)’ – OUCH! – looks at various fashion editors reactions, including US Vogue’s Anna Wintor. But the fabulous Anna Dello Russo (Japan Vogue editor – DUH!) seemed quite positive, donning this Dw outfit hot off the catwalk.
So while I think it looked a bit weird and ill-fitting, it’s safe to assume Kanye hasn’t suffered a Lindsay Lohan for Ungaro style crash-and-burn.
Let’s enjoy his day job then, as an entertaining and stylish rapper.
