Kanye West Slams Louis Vuitton! Says Their Stuff Is Too Expensive!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFashion SmashionKanye WestCollection's BureauLouis VuittonGIFs

Kanye West changes his tune on expensive designer clothing -- specifically from Louis Vuitton!

Kanye West has been putting a lot of people in the fashion world on blast lately, and his latest victim is none other than Louis Vuitton!

Despite the fact that 'Ye interned and designed $800 shoes for the fashion house back in 2009, the "Louis Vuitton Don" thinks their merchandise is far too expensive and sends a negative message to his followers.

Kanye explained to Power 106 on Monday:

"If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now, I wouldn't, because the prices are just too extreme. I don’t want to use my message to have kids saving up that much to be a part of what the ideas are. That’s the problem to me with luxury."

We can only imagine this is a recent change of heart since Yeezus designed a pair of shoes for Giuseppe Zanotti last year that retailed for $6000!

Maybe fiancé Kim Kardashian's affordable Kardashian Kollection finally struck a chord with the rapper.

Thoughts???

    Says the man who sells plain fleece sweatshirts for $280 a pop.

    I respect this a lot! Yes, everyone likes to have nice things and splurges here and there but I like the way Kanye is thinking :) Great message!

    he may benefit from a course in fashion merchandising/ marketing. Markets segment for a reason. We need luxury brands, that don't go 'on sale", that don't pander, that don't 'outsource' labour, etc, etc. If LV were for everyone, it'd just be another Coach or Michael Kors. LV is an island and barrier to entry is high (if you don't want the cheesy coated canvas) and it will remain that way. If KW thinks it sends a "bad message", he needs to take a closer look at his life and the message he's sending his fans (if that's really even a concern). I suspect he's just trying to say something controversial, in order to seem relevant (in fashion). Come on — would any one Truly fashionable ever have anything to do with a Kardashion?

    Re: Jessicalc – exactly. It's ok for kids to buy his ridiculously expensive white t-shirt, or his finance's over priced sweat shop crap, but he bitches about Louis Vuitton. Hypocrite.

    Stop posting about this loud-mouthed, no-class porch monkey. Just because he said something about you doesn't mean we want to endure endless posts about this ghetto trash prick. You are a transparently insecure, worthless douche, Mario. You really are. Kanye West is nothing but idiot darkie. STFU about him already.

    Well then who would have thought I would ever agree with Kanye?" After all, he is a connoisseur of all things cheap and tawdry.

    The problem is not Kanye, or LV, it's seriously people stupid enough to pay that much for the stuff when 1) they can't afford it, and 2) it doesn't make any difference in their lifes. Let's let the blame fall where it belongs. Stupid people make LV and others like that rich for simply being stupid enough to pay that much.

    Unless that skating rink on Kim's left hand is a cubic zirconia, he's preachin' to the choir.

    Kanye's an idiot. Quotes from a man who does nothing but flaunt and waste his money on excess. I have no respect for him.



  17. 17

    That's too expensive…meaning I can't afford it in layman's terms. Kim is toooo cheap. Now the force is balanced!!!!!
