Speculations are never too far from Kanye West and this time around, rumors over the rap superstar’s upcoming women’s line continue as Grazia Daily and New York Magazine report. Sources believe that West began working on his own ready-to-wear line under the guidance of British knitwear designer, Louise Goldin. With the process yet to be finalized, it is rumored that the fourteen-time Grammy winner will have his line made by Central Saint Martins graduate students in Turnmills, which will be led by none other then the head of CSM’s graduate fashion program, Louise Wilson. Sources from the industry also deny that Anna Wintour or Karl Lagerfeld had any input in production, as Australian Harper’s BAZAAR‘s Christine Centenera is thought to be the line’s muse due to her closeness with West. The yet-to-be-revealed line also attracted global attention after sources claimed that the collection will not be ready in time for Paris Fashion Week as West’s indecisive approach makes the collection hard to materialize. It is however known that references to the samurai, sporty garments, luxury garments and embellishments will play an important role in shaping the overall look of this highly anticipated line. Stay tuned to more updates as the rumors continue.
