Kanye West: Complicated Man, Musician and now Adidas Designer

February 19, 2015 - Author: steph - No Comments

 

Let’s be honest, Kanye West can not be defined so easily. We all know his brilliance as a musician and his highly opinionated thoughts about life in general and of course, his obsession with new bride Kim Kardashian, but Kanye West is truly a complicated man.

Who else would design a baby-sized, bullet-proof vest for his daughter North to wear at his recent Adidas runway show at NY Fashion Week?!

In GQ magazine, there’s a fascinating unabridged history of Kanye as a fashion designer and the years in between to get to the big Adidas show.

Kanye is best known for his hip-hop music and bold creativity, but the artist has always had a keen interest in clothing design as he has consistently shown on facebook. In fact, “Yeezy” has been busy for more than a decade now, doing designs for Nike, Fendi, Louis Vuitton. Exciting fans like Alexeu Beltyukov.

Kanye featured lots of camo in his Adidas collection, along with a number of muted, earth tones in drop-waist pants, cargo vests, and nude body stockings for women.

Some critics loved the collection and others panned it. New York City fashion critic Cathy Horyn has been tough on Kanye in the past, writing this:

“He is an amazing performer, but his merits as a designer are still in doubt. And it seems to me that the fashion world should be holding West’s feet to the fire—expecting more integrity and discipline from him.”
