The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Kanye West is an Indecisive Fashion Designer, More Models of Color Walked at NYFW, Giorgio Armani Presents Boudoir

Kanye West must really want to impress us with his collection set to debut during Paris Fashion Week, since it’s taking him forever to decide what it’ll look like. According to an insider Yeezy is “prone to changing his mind a lot — in fact the whole process was slightly excruciating as there were SO many opinions that it took forever to get anything done’.” Sounds stressful! What could the overall aesthetic of such a micromanaged collection be? “…Samurai, with lots of sporty garments, but in luxury fabrics, with embellishment, embroidery – Japanese stuff – gold chainmail, that sort of sports-luxe thang, and unsurprisingly, lots of hoods, baseball/biker jacket shapes…” Interesting. We’ll see. (Grazia)

• As suspected, there were more models of color walking during New York Fashion Week. 90% of designers who showed had at least one black model, with 80% featuring at least one Asian model. Baby steps! (The Cut)

• The apocalyptic Missoni for Target debacle claims another. One customer says the retailer charged her bank card $1,000– and then told her the order had never been placed! “I went ahead and placed my order for about $1,000 worth of merchandise…I paid and got a confirmation screen, which I printed, and then I received a confirmation email. I even checked my banking website and my card had been charged. About an hour later, I went back online to check my order. It wasn’t there. There was no order listed on my account screen.” Soul crushing indeed! (Racked)

• You know you’ve got it when your couture collection is organized electronically. Valerie Steele, who curated the Daphne Guinness exhibit for the Museum at FIT says the beer heiress “has a computer database on all of [her] clothes.” (Stylefile)

Giorgio Armani presents “Boudoir”, a fashion film by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, starring models Sasha Pivovarova and Diego Fragoso in looks from the brand’s Fall 2011 collection. What do you think? (Armani)
