(Fashion) Pop Quiz- Which Singer Turned Designer Is Selling These Shoes For $5,887?
Why its Kanye West of course. Back when he showed his Samurai-inspired Dw by Kanye West collection at Paris Fashion Week in October ’11 many folks including the good people at the Huffington Post laughed at the ridiculous clothes and poofy beaded heels but with enough capitol apparently anyone can be a “designer.”
The heels have been co-designed with Giuseppe Zannotti, incidentally Zanotti’s most recent collab for Anthony Vaccarello ended with a poor model stumbling and falling down the runway. When someone asked the model about it on twitter she responded, "Couldn't walk in the heels!!!!"
The clothing was called Balmain knockoff’s -which in our opinion is just insulting to Balmain- by some and “extraordinarily expensive; some of it virtually unproduceable” by an insider who observed the singer during the design process. The insider went on to tell Grazia Daily, “the whole process was slightly excruciating as there were SO many opinions that it took forever to get anything done.”
Collette a tres exclusive luxury store in Paris has already stocked the shoes on its shelves for a cool 4420 Euros or $5,887. So the question is would you pay around $6000 for these shoes?
We have a sample of Kw by Kanye West’s Spring ‘12 collection for your viewing pleasure below.
