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.
Kanye West made an appearance during the halftime performance at the All-Star Basketball game. He wore a pair of Balmain Homme red leather pants. I do think this is a great stage look, minus the red sleeveless hoodie, but that is Kanye’s look. A red leather jacket could have been a better choice, in my opinion. I think it would have given even more stage presence, if the all red wasn’t enough by itself.
I think these pants won’t just make their appearance on stage. I have a feeling that Kanye will be rocking these on the streets as well. With a gray tee, these would look great for regular day wear, in Kanye sense of course.
Kanye West was spotted wearing a Balmain Homme denim jacket to ring in the New Year with Jay-Z at The Cosmopolitan Grand Opening at Marquee Nightclub in Las Vegas, Nevada. We haven’t spotted him in this jacket in a while. Actually we haven’t spotted him in a denim jacket or denim even lately. It is a great jacket though. It is very clean with mild distressing on the left shoulder. He was one of the celebrities that brought back the denim jacket.
As everyone knows Kanye is a huge fan of Balmain. So, for his next tour, he will have the fashion house’s Fall/Winter 2010 collection interpreted into mens. Yes, the Prince inspired collection. So there might be tons of brocade, gold, and purple. I’m interested in seeing how the looks will turn out, as it is one of my favorite collections from the French fashion house. Ohh…how I would love to have the black suede skinnies that were worn by Maryna Linchuk in the show. How did you readers ring in the New Year?
