Remember last week when we told you about Kanye and his obsession with Celine designer and creative director Phoebe Philo? How the Chicago rapper would be on deck to present the designer with her CFDA Award?
Remember? We also reported on the Monster rapper’s ambitions to launch a dual sex clothing line, a rumor which came true after a year or two of denials?
On Monday night in NYC, Kanye sailed through the hallowed gates of the fashion world when he presented Philo with the International Award, just as we reported.
Ye was dressed like an Italian on holiday in Paris, wearing jeans, loafers, and a blazer under a white Tee. His wrists were adorned with friendship bracelets, rubber bands and a wristwatch with a pink band, channeling the 1980s. He looked fly.
Supposedly, Ye’s new line, which he’s designing in Paris, may be ready in September, just in time for NY Fashion week.
After the break, more of Philo and Yeezy.
