Kanye West took the stage at Coachella this year to perform his song “Power” in Indio, California. He wore what else, his Balmain jeans which he paired with a shirt from Celine’s Spring 2011 women’s collection. Kanye said a year ago that he just discovered the androgyny in some clothing. This is something that I have always found in clothes. I mean…If you find the right fit of something whether it be a shirt or jeans of the opposite sex. Why limit yourself?
I think this shirt is amazing, I love the colors on it. I seriously want it in my own closet. Actually I am a fan of the whole look. I find it to be his style. I am also happy to see no headband with this look. I personally would have cuffed the sleeves up a bit, but being silk it probably wouldn’t hold. You can click here to purchase these jeans at Barneys for $890.
Kanye West was once again sporting a pair of Balmain Jeans. This time it was a pair of the silver leather pants while floating around in a spaceship in Katy Perry’s new video, E.T. I wonder what Kanye’s denim/pants closet looks like? I would love to raid that.
I’m still interested in seeing how his tour outfits will turn out. I wonder if the fashion house is still making custom pieces for the show? I mean…he was shunned at the Balmain show this season. Either way I’m sure Kanye will make a presence on the stage. He never seems to shy away from that.
Kanye West was spotted making his way to the Vivienne Westwood show during Paris Fashion Week. He gave his leather pants a rest and opted for a pair of Balmain Homme jeans. He chose a pair of the Splattered Paint jeans in Medium Blue to watch the show in. I wonder what Brand Kanye will be wearing next when everyone starts rocking Balmain? He seems to have loved Dior Homme then stopped wearing them when many guys started wearing their pairs.
I’m kind of sad to say this, but I love Kanye’s Givenchy leopard baseball jacket. It’s a bit out there, but when is Kanye’s style not. Especially during Paris Fashion Week. He always puts out his A-game during this time each season. You can click here to purchase Kanye’s jeans at Barneys for the moderately priced $690. Well for Balmain at least.
Balmain has just walked in Paris, but designer Christophe Decarnin was a no show. I’m always interested in seeing what he gives his bow in. Paris has definitely had their fair share of problems this season. This collection was once again inspired by Glam rock, but the glamorous men’s side the genre, i.e. David Bowie. Balmain also got a lot more sleek and mellow with this collection with the help of Melanie Ward. It did have the usual short, rock sensibility, and of course leather.
Balmain also added a new style to their collection that has never been featured before in the past ones, a skinny jumpsuit. Another new addition to the fashion house is t-shirts that are not in a cotton material (one shown above). A great take on the usual cotton and drapes just like it. I’m sure Kanye will be sporting one pretty soon. I think the jackets and the dresses will once again have many ladies swooning, as well as the mini skirts. You can check out many of the looks below.
