Citing Marc Jacobs as his idol, Kanye West is ready to leave music world and conquer the fashion world... Absurd, it may seem. But how much of it is true? Can his ego carry him towards the whole transition? Are we losing a music talent but gaining another fashion re-inventor? I find it hard to swallow just as the news of Joaquin Phoenix's decision to stop being an actor to become a rapper. Do you support their decisions to cross over? Will they succeed?
Truth be told, he has been meddling in fashion for quite some time now. Blogging (sans words) about fashion in his blog, collaborated with Louis Vuitton for a line of sneakers, a frequent at Fashion Week front row and own line; Pastelle **. He also announced his intention of becoming a fashion intern.
Read Kanye's interview in Details mag *here*.
** Dazed Digital reported that Pastelle will be launching a womenswear line and upcoming jewellery collaboration with Takashi Murakami.
Could he be the voice of this fashion generation?
