Kanye West Debuts His New Womenswear Collection in Paris

Kanye West much talked about womenswear collection made it's debut yesterday during Paris Fashion Week and the reviews are mixed. In front row sat some of the biggest designers like the The Olsens, Azzedine Alaia, Dean & Dan Caten from DSquared, Jeremy Scott and Oliver Theyskens. Some loved it and some well, thought he should stick to music. As for me, being that this is his first collection, I am willing to give him another shot. For Spring 2012 I think the pieces are just to heavy, I mean jackets had fur and crocodile leathers. Of course the pieces can be broken down but it didn't have that feeling of spring to it. I couldn't imagine wearing some of these pieces on a warm day in NYC or anywhere else. However he did have some pieces that I would love to see Rihanna in like the peach sleeveless dress with zipper detailing. There were some other pieces that were my favorite like the black long sleeve dress with a plunging neckline and the nude cut-out top and skirt. My ultimate favorite piece out the collection was undoubtedly the GIVENCHY shoes. There is no question that when it comes to making great music Kanye is the man but can he conquer fashion? He has already done a sneaker collection for Louis Vuitton, so only time will tell. Continue to see more from the collection and tell me what you think.
