| Filed under: Fashion SmashionKanye West

kanye__opt1.jpg

Kanye West is spreading his wings!

The performer extraoridinaire has been in Paris the last few days for the couture shows and has revealed to Women's Wear Daily that he's teaming up with Louis Vuitton to do a shoe line.

Kanye doesn't mess around.

He'll only work with the best!

Can't wait to see what the design house and rapper come up with.

And, will they be making shoes for poor people too?????

Don't be elitists!

    If his current style of clothing is any indication of his shoe style, it will suck more than Perez does on a banana with his sundaes.

    Why does kanye have to have such a lousy ass personality yet such good work comes from him. Seriously, if his personality was better… I dunno maybe I would get a girl boner? : D

    Thanks for the Canada mention

    Dear Perez H, I admire you and want to be more like you but I just don't think I have what it takes, so say a little prayer for me if you would't mind. My thoughts are with you — I think you are fine.

    great, one more thing to make Kanye's head even bigger! I'm sorry but when you're that full of yourself, you're setting yourself up for failure. Maybe not now, but someday we'll look at him and think wow he kinda sucks now and then what will he feel like?

    I, for one, am so over kanye west! He is a pompous ass, and i wish he would just go away. I love his music, but he is such a jerk, that i forbid myself from listening. Hes like a big bratty ass whining child!

    Kanye da Cunt. Because he sure aint got balls where they should be- they have been screwed into big ass lock jawed mouth!!
    He's a shit talker -so come on everyone lets talk shit back to the little bitchy cunt!!!!!



  30. 30

    Oh, please.
    He can't rap. He might as well move on to someting else.
    I wonder just who propositioned whom, to work together.
    I don't see european designers knocking each other down to "partner" (using the term very, very loosely) with american rappers (or just rappers,…only in America, etc.) to design haute couture.
    That would be like a caviar-selling company begging Jiff peanut butter to join them in some cockamamie adventure.

    Kanye, Fiddy, Lil Wayne, Akon, and ALL the rest—including every freaking idiot with "Ice" in their name—should be put on one ship, headed for europe, or even better yet Japan or Taiwan. With a "special" U.S. Coast Guard escort.
    Somehow they will "accidentally" go off course, heading for the Mariana Trench (one of the deepest parts of the Pacific Ocean).
    When the "special" Coast Guard escort arrives, having lost the "Ship Of Fools" that went down into the depths with no survivors, they will then report "that a terrible storm came up and there was nothing they could do".
    Yeah, that's the ticket. That will be the plan. No survivors. Lost at sea.
    And the world will be a better place—guns and drugs will cease to be glorified.
    The notion of Fame and Wealth, without talent and hard work—will be a fallacy of the past. O Brave New World.



  37. 37

    i smell disaster in the air.
    kanye PLEASE understand your not that great. and louis vuitton are really setting themselves up to fail.
    i mean theyve already lost enough brand value when 13 year olds started wearing their stuff.
    kanye west is not a designer, so make a line for macy's instead. thats more like your "group". don't bring down people with actual class, just because your mom died.



  38. 38

    Re: J-StaRRa – Unfortunately, number 8, Kanye don't loves women. Size 18/20 girls and higher have a tough life, I can only try to imagine. But bes loving on some nice, actually talented, young black mens.

    Re: Nubian Goddess – Your comments are quite insightful. How could rappers design haute couture while remaining true to their urban roots? I find these two ideas incompatible like water and oil ! Anyway do we really think that rappers have a sense of style that the average folks would like to emulate? Errrrr, sadly only in certain circles

    Re: WTF

    Amy may be on drugs honey but since when did we use that against people would you be this nasty to an anorexic? Amy has talent everyone on the face of the planet can see that she's just off the rails hopefully soon to return and cunts like you and Perez who consistantly bitch about her will of course eat your words when she gets better. Kanye raps… it requires no talent he shouts into a microphone big fucking whoop and he acts like a stuck up child because he can shout into a microphone. Hmmm got to agree with Amy on this one he is a cunt.

    Kanye is worthy to be one of Avril Lavigne's hemmorhoids. Kanye is fit to lick the shit off my used toilet paper. Kanye isn't talented enough to sing an elephant fart. I do not like Kanye in a box. I do not like Kanye with a fox. I do not like Kanye in a house. I do not like Kanye with a mouse.

    # 26 Sienna I know thats you/.If he doesnt win a fashion award is he going to cry like he always does at every awards show. Stupid idea a great way to dilute the brand.Maybe he'll design a car for Mercedes and become an urban planner for New Orleans. Yes you are a very creative but dont get too carried away. I can already see what these high top plastic covered mothas will look like.

    okay seriously everyone needs to stfu about kanye west.
    sorry you don't like him, but he's around. world known
    and pretty darn amazing. he's projected hip hop to a new
    artistic level, gaming up with some of the biggest name
    in the buisness, i dont think him getting ur respect is
    really gonna make a difference in his career cos he's
    got millions of other supporters who think he's great
    and all his shows are sold out…for a reason.
    secondly, kanye dressed EXCEPTIONALLY WELL.
    his glasses have become a staple among the youth
    as well as bringing back old school nikes
    and dope leather jackets…i think what he wears
    instantly becomes a success, just like his music.
    he pretty much promotes "louis v" in most of his songs
    so im glad he's working with them its obviously one
    of his favorite brands!so if you don't like it plug your ears, close your eyes
    and go listen to some carrie underwood or something

    I find it very disturbing that Kanye (and I actually like the guy) would "partner" up with a brand such as LV, when they could care less about the demographic to which he caters. This is just what we need, another rapper to stamp his name on a European product, for young black/hispanic/asian kids to run out and spend their hard earned (or parents hard earned) money on a brand that does not give a fuck about them enough to put more than 2 black males (out of 54 looks) in their show! The runway show is supposed to be a reflection of their customer base, do they really feel that is what we represent as a consumer to their brand. With all the idiot rappers screaming the LV name all over their songs-which leads LV all over the US to be crowded with young inner city teens and adults?! Come on Kanye…Fuck a LV collabo…Do ya OWN SHIT! Marc is just trying to capitalize off of you and Pharrell & you guys are falling for it. There are plenty of Black Luxury designers who can actually benefit from your collaboration. Come on black people, we have got to do better!

    Jungle bitches either wear leaves tied around their feet or nothing at all. What's so couture about that? He'd be beter off with a moisture lotion line for his ashy skin, a line of hip hop butt beads that play his music as you pull'em out or a line of tampons for whiney bitch men. I personally would rather buy Paris Hiltons champagne in a can than a tainted LV product!

    Overpriced and poor quality LV is desperate for business since their sales has gone down the toilet!!! They dont know what else to do… Kanye and all the people wearing LV gets it for free so stupid people would buy that shit! I say go AMERICAN and Fuck the french shit!!! Too bad you are so easy to buy Kanye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its going to be called GAYER LV by K!!! PLus LV is very racist and they treat people like shit! They think they are better than anyone with that CHINATOWN monogram shit! Since Marc JAcobs is running out of people to copy they recruit the arrogant K!!! FUCK LV!!!!

How about a big concert, free hotel rooms and ATM cards pre-loaded with $3,000? Will any mayors in these Iowa cities go to the media and say their town needs to be a vanilla town again like God intended? Oh the questions
