Well what do you know… The “Louis Vuitton Don” himself, Kanye West, cares about what people think. Most people wouldn’t think he does after all the controversies he’s been involved in and the way he just proudly/freely voices his opinion. However, in usual Kanye form, he addressed all his haters at the debut of his fashion line.
Mr.West has just debuted his first collection of women’s high-fashion apparel in Paris during fashion week. But apparently the critics weren’t feeling what he had to offer to the world of fashion. Some took to it willingly and some of them didn’t.
Obviously West’s arrogance has slightly faded away but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to all the negative reviews heÂ has beenÂ receiving about his fashion line. He’s gotten the memo and he wants everybody to just tone it down and give him a little slack and leeway…
“Thank you for anybody that didnâ€™t believe, because they motivated us to break our boundaries. We donâ€™t know what the reviews will be, we donâ€™t know what they will say, but I got a chance to go to Italy and feel those fabrics. I begged Louis Vuitton to let me do more shoes after my shoes sold out in two weeks, and they did not. I begged Nike, I begged this company to let me do it. And I took out motherf*cking loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue. I gave you everything that I had.
â€œThis is my first collection. Please be easy. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity sh*t. I donâ€™t f*ck with celebrities. I f*ck with the creatives in this room, the amazing people who spend every day of their life trying to make the world a more beautiful place.
â€œThe amount of people that tried to get me a celebrity f*cking deal. They said, â€˜You need to do boot-cut jeans, or you wonâ€™t sell.â€™ Shut the f*ck up ! Or Hedi Slimane in the motherf*cking Mercer, sitting with me, saying, â€˜Stop giving them your ideas, Kanye. Do your own thing.â€™ Hedi Slimane! To feel so frustrated. And I thank anybody who came to this party, everybody who supported, everybody who believed, because people thought it was a joke, and maybe people still do, but I can only grow from this point.â€
He’s overcome a lot in life and has been doing his thing in the fashion world. Of course you are going to have some people who like what you do and some who DON’T. But if you guys don’t remember he has two successful shoes.
One with Nike called the Air Yeezy and the second with Louis Vuitton. So just give him a little more time and we’re sure that Ye’ will be putting out that HOT SH*T that well all LOVE.
What y’all think, you think the critics are being to harsh on Yeezy or what? What about the speech that he gave at his debut? I’m not even surprised he said that. What do you think about his blunt words though?
