Kanye In Givenchy Bomber + Leather Kilt

KanyeLeatherKilt 300x540 Kanye In Givenchy Bomber + Leather Kilt

Thanks to a video tape showing Kanye West going off on the lighting guy for messing up the lights (though some are saying it’s part of the act and he’s doing the same thing in all his shows) for “All Of The Lights” during his “Watch The Throne” concert this past weekend, a lot of people are also noticing the outfit West performed in. The top is Givenchy but no one seems to have identified the leather skirt yet (perhaps lent by Marc Jacobs?). The kicks are the Nike Air Yeezy style launching later this month. 

Anyway, interesting to see rap fashion trend less conservatively. From Lil Wayne’s leopard leggings to now Kanye in a skirt, it certainly makes for more compelling entertainment. And who knows, maybe it’s a positive sign that rap is becoming less obsessed with the “no homo” sadness of the early 00s.

It’s probably sacrilegious to mention an illustrious “maison” like Givenchy, and the Thunder Cats in the same sentence but truly  that is the first thing that came to mind  at first glance of these frames. Hence the reason why we’re  smitten with the Givenchy “Panther” eyewear collection. And the fur on the rims? We’re melting. See many more hues at Stylepantry.

Kanye West’s Clothing Line Might Surprise Many

amberyslfront 518x540 Kanye Wests Clothing Line Might Surprise Many

While we could digress on the power of money and access and the fact that there are so many talented designers who could benefit from the backing of Kanye West,we also have to acknowledge that the pursuit of one’s dream is one to respect regardless of odds, pedigree or even education. Nonetheless, after Mr West styled this shoot we were ready for catsuits and freakum dresses. Alice Cavanagh who recently got a peek at Kanye West’s clothing line says otherwise:

Two days later I visited his design studio — a surprisingly modest space in the 1st arrondissement, that looked reassuringly like an established atelier. It was a Saturday, but Christine, Louise and two other young designers (one of whom works with Givenchy, no less) were all beavering away. There were sketches out and I am happy to report that I liked what I saw — not a bodystocking jumpsuit in sight. Come October, we could all be pleasantly surprised.

Riccardo Tisci & Tim Blanks Talk Givenchy Couture Autumn/Winter 2011

19 July 2011, 23.19 | Posted in Couture, Fashion | 1 comment »

The Givenchy couture “Birds of Paradise” collection by Riccardo Tisci and his atelier of genius craftsmanship is one of those presentations that nearly takes our breath away. While the images convey the grandiose appeal of the apparel, the above video brings us closer to couture and why it still exists. It’s not about obsession as Tim Blanks offers, but about emotion according to Tisci, who says, “Very experimental while keeping the tradition of the house,” hence his reason for not presenting couture on a catwalk, adding, “Couture  should be something that stays forever in your wardrobe.” On the next page his favorite dress, enjoy.

The Swag Of Givenchy & Riccardo Tisci

06 July 2011, 23.30 | Posted in Couture, Runway Show | 2 comments »

givenchycouture2 360x540 The Swag Of Givenchy & Riccardo Tisci

Givenchy gets the “Swag Or No Swag?” treatment, and natch, comes out on top in poll results. Not suprising because these days head designer Riccardo (oops) Roberto Tisci very much has that “it” aura floating all around him. 

The dress above is from Givenchy’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection. It seems like back interest and half exposed butts are quite the theme thus far in the couture presentations. Is that inspired by all the pop stars–especially Lady Gaga, who have been exposing their bums as of late?

The entire collection at Fgr. The front of the dress featured here on the next page.

Definitely my fave resort collection thus far. Super love for everything on this page–the visor, key chain(!!!), the skirt and the coordinated shoes–it’s luxury doing its deftest dance with street, which, something like the Wicked Witch has my heart melting. (Double props for using models of colors other than white.)

Nicki Minaj Interviewed By Vogue Wearing Alex Wang!

30 March 2011, 20.39 | Posted in FASHION WITH A CONSCIENCE, Music, celebrity | 2 comments »


Nicki Minaj performed at a environmental charity event held by auction house Christie’s last night (which, Minaj informs us via Tweet, she was asked to do so by by Anna Wintour herself), and on the red carpet was interviewed by Vogue. Here is the response to her outfit question:

What are you wearing tonight? Is it one of your favorite designers?
Yes, it is—it’s Alexander Wang. It’s all black, of course, and I knew I needed to get my green on, so that’s how I came up with the green-and-white hair. I have a lot of designers I like right now; I really like Donatella Versace. She sent me a few beautiful things recently to consider wearing to the Grammys and, even though I ended up wearing Givenchy,  I believe in supporting women. I’m all about the girl power.

Which is cute because Alexander Wang stated in a recent interview that Minaj is an artist he’s listening to a lot lately (“I’m really into Nicki [Minaj] right now, of course, who isn’t?”), so…..together at last!

See a few more images, plus her response to her makeup essentials on the next page. And on another note, first Lady Gaga, then Rihanna, now Nicki?? What the heck is going on at Vogue or maybe more accurately with Wintour??
