With every passing day, all the myth and lore surrounding the launch of Kanye West's clothing line, which was once reported to be called Pastelle, seems much less like myth and lore than an actual fetus with just an incredibly long gestation period. After legendary Central Saint Martins professor Louis Wilson confirmed that designer Louise Goldin was in fact working with Kanye on a line that she suggested the public not "dismiss in haste," Australian Harper's Bazaar reports its fashion editor Christine Centenera is also consulting on the line. Centenera met Kanye at the fall 2011 shows and has been flying to Paris twice a month since to help him.
Australian Harper's Bazaar's Anna McLeod writes:
It’s all very hush-hush at this stage, and Centenera refuses to discuss it when she is actually in the office, stating that West is a very private person and that it’s not her place to comment. However, this writer sits next to said fashion editor in the BAZAAR office, so one plus one equals two, right? We’ll keep you posted.
We love a story that causes a magazine to report on their own editors. American Vogue may do it frequently, but surely without the gossipy zest of this post.
