You'll be relieved to that know Kanye West realized his lifelong dream yesterday. The ten-time Grammy winner is officially a fashion designer. The sneakers he designed for Louis Vuitton walked in the men's show in Paris yesterday. Like winning his ten Grammys, these sneakers were the product of lots of hard work and dedication. Louis Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs told WWD, "I think Kanye goes to the office more than I do. He’s really, really into sneakers." The shoes were ingeniously conceived. Quoth Kanye:
We started from the sole. We made it lighter weight and flexible, so you can bend it…. I was inspired by the movie “Dune” because, as you know, I love sci-fi…. The collection had all these jackets that were very padded. They looked like maybe they had hockey pads in the jacket, and there was one where the collar came up really high. I took that element and I put that on the back of the shoe. It’s like the opposite of the tongue. Usually you have the tongue at the front. [This is] like a tongue at the back.
Speaking of tongues, just after the Louis collection launched, a rumor came out that unsettled Kanye. He blogged his pain:
YOOOO WHY WON'T YOU LET ME BE GREAT!!! I HAD THE TWO GREATEST DAYS OF MY LIFE AND WHEN I GET BACK FROM THE LOUIE SHOW I READ SOME SHIT CLAIMING I SAID I'M DOWN TO DO PORN AND SOME BISEXUAL PORN!!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE THE AVN WOULD POST
Ah that's better. Reading his normal speech in which WWD spelled "Louis" correctly for him was throwing off our Kanye UniverseCity. God, we spend too much time on the internet.
