近日,《Complex》雜誌在 adidas OriginalsYeezy Season One」發布會之後對 Kanye West 進行了深度訪談。面對公眾對自己涉足時尚領域的質疑、重返 T 台等敏感話題,Yeezy 娓娓而談,他希望公眾不在自己設計師頭銜前加入任何類似「藝人」等身份前綴,而是單純把他當作一名設計師,就如你想到 Eminem 時,你不會拿白人說唱歌手來定義一樣,他只是一個 Rapper,是 Eminem;此外,Mr West 還就 John Galliano Maison Margiela 首秀、SupremeHood by Air 等品牌發表了自己看法,並大談 Riccardo Tisci、Alexander Wang、Oliver Rousteing 給予自己在服飾設計方面的巨大幫助;最後,KW 還首度揭秘了「Yeezy Season One」發布會當天自己複雜的心理活動和巨大壓力,其甚至認為此場秀就是決定他人生成敗與否的分水嶺。感興趣的朋友可以點擊此處在線閱讀專訪完整內容。

What was going through your head when you came out and took a bow on [following the adidas show]?
I just felt that my life was dependent on the success of this show. I set myself up to win or fail. To win or fail. And people were just waiting. “Is he gonna do it?” It was almost like the Super Bowl of culture in a way. It was like a David Blaine move in some ways. Are the sharks gonna eat me alive? It was, “Will he be eaten by the shark tank, or will he survive? Can he hold his breath for this long?” The three on the back of the Tyvek jacket invites was about the three years that I had been off the runway. And I had to hold my breath for that long.
But going back to the established dudes, you’re friends with a lot of fashion designers, like Riccardo Tisci, Alexander Wang, Olivier Rousteing… Have they given you any feedback on the collection?
They support me one hundred percent. They sent flowers, emails, and just love. They know I’m in that design office. They know I’m there giving an opinion. They know the concept of celebrity designer is so far out the window.
I feel like I’m Eminem, you know? You don’t think “white rapper.” You just think Eminem. You don’t think celebrity designer, straight designer, black designer, all these types of things that kind of held me back conceptually in being accepted as a designer. You just think of those words. But when those moon boots come out, you put them on your feet and just swag out and go somewhere with your friends, those words don’t matter.
I’m just happy that I was able to apply the mentality and passion that brought the College Dropout into existence. Now, I may finally have enough of a point of view and understanding to apply and create. Enough of a vision to make. There’s so many far more talented designers but I just have a perspective and a heart. And I’m gonna give all the heart and perspective that I can.
So what’s next?
More dope shit.
