Kanye West showed his debut womenswear collection in France for Paris Fashion Week on Saturday, and reviews are decidedly mixed. While I think the collection needed an edit, I thought it was a great first collection nonetheless. Not everyone’s first collection turns out that well, but then again Kanye had some help from Central Saint Martins students.
While I think there were some great moments in the line, like the salmon colored zipper dress that Jourdan Dunn wore, and the very low cut black dress, or the Giuseppi Zanotti x Kanye West heels. I also think there were some low moments, like the monster hoodie, and the fact that everything looked like it came from every designer show Kanye had seen in the past. I also didn’t like how the packed front row of the hottest celebrities, designers, and fashion editors barely clapped through the final walk.
He has a ways to go, but it was a great first start. How do you all feel?
Also, I got this video from Fashion Bomb Daily. I haven’t been able to do all of my usual fashion week reviews lately because I have been busy with my final semester of graduate school. If you want some great fashion show reviews, check out Fashion Bomb Daily.
