So that fashion line called Pastelle that Kanye West has been working on for ages? Not happening. After images from the Pastelle look book leaked on the web yesterday, his people revealed that the line would never be released. It's very strange — Kanye seemingly put everything aside to devote himself to fashion design. He cleared his schedule for an entire five months, starting in February, to work on Pastelle and his Louis Vuitton sneaker collaboration. He even delayed his tour (which is neither here nor there now, since it isn't happening anyway, but we digress!). So meticulous is Kanye as a designer that after working on Pastelle for over a year, he only produced four Pastelle pieces, including three articles of clothing and a belt. But if he eventually created enough clothing to shoot what appeared to be a look book, why all of a sudden take it all back?
Perhaps Kanye is the kind of creator who is never satisfied. The kind of creator who never sees the genius in his own work. Karl Lagerfeld may dash off sketch after sketch and produce outfit after outfit, but maybe Kanye torments himself over every detail, never able to reconcile his vision with the resulting physical product. And so he has scrapped that which will never be good enough — in his eyes. Either that, or this is just some elaborate hoax to drum up more press and excitement for the line Kanye's reps say he will eventually launch. Martin Margiela may be retired, but Kanye can keep us guessing.
