Kanye West hit the stage with best friend Jay-Z at the Museum of Modern Art’s annual 2011 Party in the Garden once again in his favorite pair of Balmain Homme jeans in New York. I never would have thought I would ever be a fan of Kanye in any aspect whatsoever, let alone in his style. But his style has become a lot less extravagant and more relaxed. It sort of reminds me of my own actually, just sticking to the basics and adding other things to make them different.
Though Kanye might have gained a fan through me, he may have lost one through ex-girlfriend Amber Rose. She recently replied to the comments that many are saying she has downgraded from Kanye to her current boyfriend Wiz Kalifa in the issue of King Magazine that she graces. She says, “There’s no comparison in personalities. You know when people say how do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa, that’s a downgrade. But the only question I can ask them is: have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all.” What are your thoughts on Ms. Rose’s statement?
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.

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.
