Regardless of harsh criticism, Kanye West is just not going to give up on fashion, at least not in the apparel sense.
While many thought he’d give up his first stint as a fashion designer after his debut at Paris Fashion Week last year, the rap superstar has been quite productive after his recent move to London by designing some strappy kicks for Dion Lee.
When Aussie designer Dion Lee premiered his very first AW 2012 RTW collection, everyone was pleased with the introduction, as the collection itself had impeccable detailing with architectural cuts and geometric silhouettes—in other words, it was a collection for the modern woman.
Interestingly enough, during Lee’s fashion presentation, all the models walked the runway wearing the same exact shoe designed by Kanye West.
The shoe itself is a simple pointy black heel with a strap that ties to the front in a delicate bow while the other strap belts a little above the ankle—it’s simply sexy.
Even though West debuted his apparel collection to unfavorable criticism, his shoe design is quite favored.
While critics remain skeptical of his apparel collection—at least until his second showing at Paris Fashion Week—we can all agree that when it comes to shoes, West seems to have a knack for designing.
Kanye West will present another collection for Paris Fashion Week March 6 at 9:30 pm.
