Rumor: Kanye West to present 2012 Women’s Collection in Paris
The rumor mill and Kanye West go together almost as well as his production sensibilities and soul samples. The latest chatter involves Kanye West unveiling a women’s collection in Paris on October 1, directly after Jean Paul Gaultier and Loewe, as reported by Harper’s Bazaar Australia. Fashion industry professionals believe West tipped his hand by being glaringly absent from New York Fashion Week. The only question that remains unanswered is who is helping him? Since news of a Kanye West line broke, he’s been tied to Phoebe Philo, Louise Goldin, Louise Wilson, Jean Touitou, Giuseppe Zanotti and Christine Centenera. Page Six is now reporting that West has tapped Givenchy creative director and Watch the Throne cover designer, Riccardo Tisci, as his mentor. The drama builds just like a well-crafted instrumental. Stay tuned.
