JAdore kanye u can get more than it wit yo fine self lol....but yea the collection is bananas the shit is bananas the models are haute baddest on the runways I want every piece the footwear yea umm not so much ..but models kanye and the clothes gimme all latt
Bambi Northwood looks hot as usual. You n*ggas don't know one single model up there that are about to say something about the fact that a black person is trying to be successful and express themselves in the arts- stay in your BAD NEIGHBORHOOD and your SHELTERED WORLD and keep black people DOWN.
If you're gonna be appreciative of how amazing this is, THANK YOU. but i KNOW some people will have something negative to say and then WONDER why black artists and black FASHION DESIGNERS get no respect IT STARTS AT HOME- YALL GOTTA BACK YOUR OWN PEOPLE
UM NO, FASHION ISN'T ABOUT GIVING PEOPLE OPPORTUNITIES OR PROVING A POINT ABOUT RACE.. YOU PICK WHATEVER MODEL LOOKS BEST IN THE CLOTHES AND GETS YOU PUBLICITY. THIS IS FASHION NOT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION THANKS. BE HAPPY THAT A BLACK DESIGNER IS GETTING THIS MUCH COVERAGE.
As much as people clown him and I do too lol I gotta admit..I would wear almost every single piece on that runway. Kanye did a great job. His collection looks classy, in style, expensive and tasteful. 1000$ sneakers? JOKE. This collection? Pretty on point. Kanye if you read this, humble yourself and you can grow bigger.
He has more black models in this show than probably any other designer all season- if you knew anything about the fashion industry you'd know to stfu. The only black model designers even use now is Joan to be honest. Not even Chanel so much.
wow super amazed he got talent no doubt as for the 3 down first pic if da leather was tight on the top bit loose in the bottom would have been perfect when is it out ??????? i deff need the 2 nude color dress in 2 row
The collection is very futuristic meets urban. I like the low cuts, like on the black dress. I like how it squares off at the waist. The line is very good. Chick, couture, fierce. Good job kanye. Would be nice to see more accented colors though. A little too black and white for my taste.
It's FOND* @golden_goddiss88 and no one cares. High fashion looks best on "bony" girls so that the clothes can drape correctly. The point of models is that they are WALKING HANGERS. ALL BODIES ARE BEAUTIFUL so f*ck you and your negativity. Bony girls through big girls- all bodies are perfect. Don't let people with low self esteem tell you otherwise.
The cloths are to edgy i dont understand why he dont start out with a men line then move on to women. i dont see a average woman walkin down the streets in them cloths. its to edgy only a certain type of woman can wear this stuff. I dont like it.
Twitter:andrew_dafuture Youtube: drudafuture1 Videos are about celebrities and Souljaboy
Nice, Very Nice, but would like to see more brown model displays for a change, especially to see how the clothing would flow on our different skin tones, etc.....just a thought, dont know if he has any say in that, seem like he would being that it is his own line and all...
Some of the pieces are hot but some of them are too "busy" I hate when designers try to be too eccentric and different because the outcome is always WEIRD. Designers need to be realistic, People must actually be able to walk the streets and go to work with their clothes. So dont be so extra and WEIRD
I like a lot of the garments. Just wish I couldve seen them on real women with curves not stick figures. Itd be more flattering and that's who'd be wear it anyways. Besides that great job Kanye! ChiTown! And to all those Haters, your just mad your not on his status. Do your own or keep it movin
Yes to the second and fourth pic in the top row....and I'm looking from left to right. Yes to the first (very sexy, where can you wear that too, except a private dinner in your bedroom) and third pic in the second row (...except take off the back brace on pic number three though). Yes to the 2nd pic in the fifth row....those pants are really kind of electrifying, but it could work.....especially if you put some nice shorts with that top. Ok Kanye....I see you boy.....but remember not to go overboard with the sexy....cutting huge patches out of stuff, no....grown women want to show an illusion of the sexy.....and remember to pick different parts to expose without going overboard. For example, if the whole back is out, then cover everything else up, or you can expose the lower arms and legs. Leave the shoulders out and you can expose a lot of leg. Grown women are starting to move away from trying to expose their bellies (at least grown women who got children) so give the illusion of a nice stomach by using wrap dresses, strips of nude material here and there, and material that creates a layering affect.
Haven't been a fan of Ye's since his first album BUT...I'll give him credit!! This ISH is great! it's high fashion and with a little left for the fashion conservative! His interpretation is hot! Be Blessed!
the clothes look like a little child's pretend fashion made out of old socks and clothes. he needs to get some one with real talent to design his line. i guess he had a little time on his hands so he decided to do fashion but it's really not happening. as long as u a "star" you can get away with anything. props for trying though.
Creativity to its finest. From someone that started out rapping to high-end fashion is amazing. Kanye is not your everyday artist. People like him come around once every 50 years. A lot of females on here don't know anything about fashion. Especially when I see yall in the club or at a party and to see how y'all dress I always wonder. SMH.
Kind of a mess, but I would wear some of it. Congratulations, Yeezy! But is it for spring or fall? Aren't the spring 2012 clothes fashion shows on now? So why does he have so much fur on the runway? Who is running around in fur and all that leather when it's warm outside?
Luv how this nigguh thinks just because he's watched a bunch of fashion shows he could be a designer, and for women no less. The clothes are ugly and don't flatter any womens shape. Once again he tried too damn hard.
I Freaking Luuuv It !!!! I love how he mixed urban fashion with couture pieces. the look is sort of Androgynous. And I also love the use of the different fabrics and prints. Go head Yeezy.... I see you . S/N I know Rachel Zoe loves it.. so her style . Haters may now proceed !!!
good job kanye this looks dope i like the futuristic look .... to me is seems like balmain meets trussardi with an urban flair and i like the fact that you have some ready to wear pieces in your collection i hope you do well
Some of the outfits are cute and unusual but I'm hoping that he doesn't make this line to mainly fit the anorexic white chicks.Also, some of the blouses need to be arranged because they don't pair well with the bottoms and the shoes suck!! Was that constructive enough for ya MTO?? Damn!!
Well since heâ€™s reading, and Iâ€™m a designer/illustrator that appreciates symmetry and form, Iâ€™ll share my opinion.
Top row: All of the items are interesting and have visual appeal. I particularly like the use of the â€œhoodedâ€ shoes on model one, three and fourâ€™s extended pants.
Row two: I like the first knit dress. The next three, no bueno.
Row three: The fur trimmed poncho (?) on the first model is interesting, and once again the shoes. I donâ€™t like the split shorts paired with it. The next knit dress is rather basicâ€¦and is that some kind of backpack she has on with it? Whatever it is, itâ€™s distracting and just doesnâ€™t work, in my opinion. The last dress with the breast exposing plunge is interesting. It should also be made available in a higher neckline for those that like the hem length and sleeves but not necessarily the neckline.
Row four: A repeat of the last model from the top row, which I already stated I like. I also like the second black leather outfit. Then thereâ€™s the color blocking pants and open shirtâ€¦ah, no. The final outfit is just not appealing with the exception of the pants bottom zip detail. Maybe a different pairing on top and this may work.
Row five: Jelo to the belly button black dressâ€¦worksâ€¦and again the shoes. The satin white outfitâ€¦not reallyâ€¦.but some one will like it.
Row six: Maybe itâ€™s the top, maybe itâ€™s the underwear length shortsâ€¦but itâ€™s not working. I would like to see the top with something else. The white hooded outfitâ€¦I like the overall design, but itsâ€™ sheerness makes it a swim suit cover-up unless youâ€™re an exhibitionist. The last group walk shot, canâ€™t really see a lot, but I know I donâ€™t like that first outfit.
The line is very one note. Plus the buyer he seems to have in mind is a very thin white girl who eats once a day (maybe) and drinks red bull and vodka nightly. So with said the fashion world will praise it but will it make tons of money and be in every high end store in the world? No. But he will get crazy access to all the white girls he can stomach. Perhaps if he would have kept Amber as a muse, he could ave created something that the majority of his fans could rock....with pride and passion!
Kanye if ya reading this YOU did good.....i expect great things to come. No disrespect to yo family (BEYONCE) But this is better than anything in the house of Derion, mind you there are no comparisons, i'm just speaking from a celebrity standpoint regarding those who get into fashion but yet have no fashion focus but you do congrats. this means were gonna see great things to come.
whoever doesn't like this is either ignorant or a hater. very edgy... just enough urban style, but most of all its sexy as fuck. i fux with the shiny peach suit... and the multi colored pants the most. i think u found your new callin kanye... really nice pieces. u should hire me for marketing and promotion. - @LeeBoySwag

@Stopit5 Please shut the h*** up! You dont know what anyone on here knows about fashion or how many models they know. If you like his line then fine thats you but everyone does not have to agree with you and shouldn't be considered the overplayed "hater" name. But on to the line.......I liked the first 5 looks. After that it kind of was.....meh, its aiight. He needs to switch up the looks a little more. You can have more colors and, cuts, and textures as long as it is all cohesive. And I would love to see what his team (not going to say him because im sure he didnt do the hard work) can do with a men's line. Anyways goodjob and i need to find out where these can be purchased
Some of those MODELS ARE MEN?!? RIGHT? THE ONE IN THE PANTS WITH THE 2 ZIPPERS AND THE ONE IN THE ORANCE AND BLUE PANTS, LOOK LIKE BOYS.
THE CLOTHES ARE ALRIGHT, NOT FEELING THE HAIRSTYLES ON THE MODELS.
Looks like its made for skinny white chicks only. To throw one black chick in the mix to give the line some "color" doesn't mean much. Where the hell can us regular folks where that ish? Sometimes I really believe celebs make clothing lines just for other celebs to wear. But their not the ones supporting your artistry, its the regular folk who "keep you on" by buying your music. This line was def. not made for us & that kinda sucks.
For a first effort, he did a good job. My brother is a fashion designer and I'll just give an opinion based on my observations of his work and his contemporaries. The black leather dress with the v cut is the best example. It has potential but the hemline is unflattering. If it makes the model look stumpy I know it would make me look stumpy. The v should come together at the waist line instead of being so far apart. Also unflattering to her figure. That seems to be the overall problem with the whole collection. The proportions are off and don't even fit the models all that great. Kanye needs to remember that the models are the hangers, but real women are going to want to wear your clothes Every great designer knows how not to just fall back on the forgiving physiques of the models. In order to make fashionistas see themselves in the clothes the proportions have to be on point and flattering. They're not here and that's what the problem is. The concept is great and I can see the vision. The color scheme is good, but I dont understand the jumpsuit at all.
Why would he premiere a line of clothing for fat women??? With items pictured.Fortunately they use skinny people for a reason fat folks. Thats because thin people look better in certain clothes esp certain types of clothes. Deal with it... Its reality.. Plus size is a speciality market. He cant step into the game with 14 15 and 20s lol who is he going to impress maybe later on he could do that but he is trying to really be taken serious. I like his ex girlfriends alexis clothing too.
i think his collection is actually really good.i like the third one on the first row.with the cut open top.i like the black dress on the second to last one he has..very creative.and i had the biggest crush on kanye west when he first came out.good collection.
follow me wonderful_lust
I applaud Kanye for his efforts. Was it the most forward thinking line out there? No...but progressive thought does not make it good by default. Was it sexy? HELL yes! Reminded me a LOT of some of the classic Gucci and Versace lines.
While it was good to see many here get what Ye was doing...once again, leave it to black people to judge the line through a racial prism.
Fashion, not the industry, is one of the few areas that is IMMUNE to racism...because it is not applicable to race, just to size. So, saying the line was made for "skinny white chicks" is very telling.
Fashion and style are subjective...meaning it is a personal decision. Race has NOTHING to do with Kanye's line...or that of any other designer. I mostly buy my clothes from Europe and Asia, because they are light-years ahead of the average menswear you see stateside...and they actually wear items you might find on a runway, as do a lot of the women there. I see a sizable amount of black women shopping at H&M...but maybe one or two black guys tops. Probably because they don't have enough over-sized white T-shirts.
I have coats from H&M that are available for anyone to purchase...but the only negative comments I hear are ALWAYS from black people. No other race will EVER hate us as much as we hate ourselves. The only color that applies to clothes are the ones they come in.
@AgeOfAquarius.... I agree totally. I love his line, especially the fur pieces.
What do his fashion line have to do with skinny white chicks and one black girl? That shyt sounds so ignorant to say the least. Everybody don't want to make cheap hood clothes like your beloved Beyonce. None of her shyt is high fashion, but ya lovin' that. Just because he is black do not mean he has to have a bunch of black models in his runway. Get real! It is not like you are going to buy the clothes anyway, unless the outlet store has a few pieces or he make a few hood pieces. Shyt if the pics was posted on this site, you would never seen the line. It is not like you are going to pick up a magazine besides Sister 2 Sister or Vibe.
Ok... A rapper/fashion designer?? Since when do respected male emcees design womens clothes and still be respected? Is it just me or is Kanye gay? Maybe it's 2011 and the game done changed and it's just me...
The collection was combination of "jacking" styles from several couture designers who aren't known to the masses while adding in some designs from fashion students and employing several industry insiders to make it appear as if its a legit fashion brand. He can do what he wants bcuz he has the money to what he wants, but if you take his name of the label and stack it up against other designs, its basically belongs in forever 21 with a 50% off clearance tag.
Secondly if its all about supporting a "brotha", then why not support black designers who love making clothes just as much as Kanye loves making music?. The industry is frankly racist and I find it sad that several hip hop moguls or black celebrities see this yet they don't hire their own or try to break down the door. They just slap their names on bullshit clothes and people in the hood buy it when the truth is your money go towards child support and luxury cars while you still don't know about all the black designers behind the scene and you still don't see black people on the runway.
Some of them are nice others are garbage. I don't have to kno nor care to kno Bambi Northwood to kno atrocious clothing either. It's not hating it's criticism which he is going to receive right along with every other global brand. He is not exempt from criticism no line is so stop being dramatic people. Anyway back on topic Kanye has some potential there. I'm on the fence with some of the looks but I hopped the fence for others.
that S H I T is HOT!!! I like the dresses and the whites. Row 1 slides 2 and 3 - the flow is awesome. Slide 3, I'll take the pants (I got my own shoes) LOL. Row 2 slide 1 and 3 are the ISH...slide 1 wrap shoes are cool, but I would have gone with another color instead of basic black (but that's just me)' row 2 sides 1 and 3 are HOT...row 4 slide 3, I'll take the pants; row 5, I dig 'em both -- now if I could just get my checkbook to cooperate - IT'S ON!!!!
Ya did good dude
Whether Kanye is reading this or not, I'm gonna keep it a buck.
It's not horrible, but it's not 'Kanye' persay. Like, I can't see any of his style put into it.. it looks like some Lady Gaga obsessed chick just designed the entire clothing line & he just signed off on it.
Can't front though, there were about 5 pieces I could see a few celebrities in .. overall, it looks good; I was just expecting more.
it's not as bas as i thought it would be, and it's not as great as he probably thought it would be. i see a few individual pieces that aren't too bad, but the majority is out there. he'll make money though, trust
A tribute to the mother that he sacrificed for fame. He didn't design these clothes alone, he had help. I saw a couple of mummies or mummy-like attire (summoning Eygtian ancestors), a couple of aliens (fallen angels) and those backpack and fur pieces are designed to resemble wings (Phoenix). None of this is new, is just being forced on us now,so that we will accept it when it comes. Oh and and that whole swoop bang (one eye) is so obvious. Kanye your ignorance is sticking out, please tuck it in. You were once ONE of my favorites and I did not have many favorites. SMH
@357Maggie, did you say that shyt...or did you say that shyt?! LOL!!! You got me with that Sister 2 Sister and Vibe line! We've gotten a bit better...but we need to fully escape this "if it ain't hood, it ain't good" mentality. It has paralyzed our growth...and we're being left behind.
@Vargas, I feel what you're saying...and you could apply that same logic to the film and television industries. Both industries are caught in a catch 22 of sorts. Membership is difficult to obtain for those that have the desire to change the internal mechanisms at work, and once such an invitation is given, those few parties either become grateful for the opportunity and decide not to rock the boat...or, they decide to make a stand and soon find themselves outsiders in the industry they love.
One cannot affect change from the outside...and the shelf life of any designer is not promised, regardless of their motivation. And that is especially so as it concerns designers of color. Even in Kanye's privileged position, his success is not promised in a very fickle industry. Funny as it sounds, he'd be more successful making movies.
all dis s**t is ugly. He dnt no anything about weman fashion. My opinion he cant dress his self. But it seems like "STOPit5" is gettin a lil deffensive about all da negative comments is dat u gayye west oh im mean kanye west
AgeOfAquarius shut up. Shopping at H&M doe not make you worldly or forward thinking. And the fashion industry s very racist. Why do you think Diddy ad Kimora flip the run way to represent their fan base. Why does BET put on rip the runway? B/C we are not represented in high end fashion. if Ye was a good business man he would look at that gap in the market and create
for those that support hi music.
There is nothing he can't do from producing some the hottest beats in the game to rapping and now the clothing line. He is very much in tune with his inspiration and goals to become best at what he does. Congratulations to you and you new line... Amazing
i am proud of you mr west....your so creative. It seems like every thing you touch turns to gold anyway or should i say dollars...and very fearless to create a womans line....spread the blessings and GOD BLESS
**** GREAT JOB **** THIS COMPETE'S WITH GUCCI, PRADA, LV AND THE REST OF THE HIGH LINE DESIGNER'S IT'S HHHOOTTT THE IDEAS, THE DESIGNS,THE WHOLE NINE. PEOPLE MUST REALIZE WHEN YOU GO TO FASHION WEEK IN PARIS THEY DON'T HAVE YOUR EVERYDAY CLOTHING ON THE RUNWAY WHY? THAT'S BORING YOU COME TO SEE THE IDEA OF THE CLOTHING AND WHAT OTHER PIECES IT CAN POSSIBLY GO WITH. MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE COMMENTING HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A HIGH FASHION RUNWAY SHOW. WELL DONE KANYE WELL DONE.
