Kanye West Will Not Show New Collection

Louise Goldin – Front Row – Spring 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Fashion fiends and Disciples of ‘Ye, I have some sad news to relay: Kanye West will not be showing his collection at Paris Fashion Week this season.

WWD reports:

Kanye West will not be showing his collection at Paris Fashion Week this season, WWD has learned. The rapper has long been a front-row fixture at fashion shows and has made no secret of his ambition to join the ranks of luxury designers, teaming up with Giuseppe Zanotti to create extravagantly priced shoes that were sold at Paris concept store Colette.

Critics gave his first two outings in the French capital lukewarm reviews, and in recent months, West appears to have turned his attention to styling new flame Kim Kardashian (arecent episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” showed him throwing out “ghetto” items from her closet). The pair showed up at the Paris couture shows in July, taking in the Stéphane Rolland and Valentino shows. Officials at Karla Otto, which represents the Kanye West line, confirmed he would not be showing, but declined to say whether the line was discontinued.

So no fashion show, but talk of a sex tape and probably more Kardashian-reality TV show related appearances? Zoom, look at him go. Then again, Kanye West is still Kanye West and I assume he’s taking time off to make sure he’s in tip top shape the next time he’s ready to show his line. You know, given he probably can’t survive another round of bad reviews. Yeah, that’s it. Keep hope alive, fans.

Meanwhile, who among you have purchased something from the KW collection?
