Given his collaborative relationship with adidas and his role at Moschino, Jeremy Scott has undoubtedly become one of the biggest designers in the world. Now, in a new interview with Complex, the always controversial, always eclectic Scott claims he was responsible for bringing adidas its most popular partner: Kanye West. Said Scott:
I’m the person who brought [Kanye West] to adidas. It was back, maybe in 2009, 2008, when he was so excited by the line, and he conveyed to me that he passionately wanted to do something with them…[Kanye]’s an amazing, creative genius…he’s just so passionate and so curious about design. I think that he’s been able to kind of show what he’s been wanting to do, trying to use this platform as a way to express himself.
