First Look: Kanye West Fall 2012

Kanye West unleashed his second Paris Fashion Week show in Halle Freyssinet, a somewhat cavernous venue in the city’s 13th arrondissement. Editors like Joe Zee, Tim Blanks, and André Leon Talley, along with stars like Teyana Taylor, Cassie, Waka Flocka Flame, Diddy, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Rosario Dawson, Kim Kardashian, Common, and more, showed up to show support for the rapper cum designers’s latest foray:

Kanye bet on black for Fall 2012, showcasing a series of saucy onyx looks in leather and lace:



Ladies walked in fierce space age stiletto boots, holding luxuriously oversized fur bags and backpacks.

When he did play with color, he kept it solid, only introducing winter whites, browns, and pinks by way of cool capes and fur coats:


It seems Kanye listened to the critics, and put forth a more cohesive and seasonally appropriate collection. Though there were some issues with fit, particularly on one peach cape…

… the collection was largely wearable.

And even if those boots kill, there’s no denying they’re hot!

What do you think?


Take a look at the official pictures:

And what post would be complete without a video of the final walk?

What do you think of Kanye’s latest collection?
