First, we reported in June that Kanye had allegedly taken up residence in Paris and was planning to show a collection for spring 2012 in a “presentation-style format.” Then in July, Grazia reported Yeezy was indeed showing a collection–but in New York, not Paris. Later, in August, we told you about the hints Giuseppe Zanotti dropped about an apparent collaboration between the two.
Now The Cut is reporting that some suggestive tweets from Wayne Sterling, of Models.com, seem to confirm that Kanye is indeed showing at Paris Fashion Week. Wayne’s tweet, which says,”Hiss hiss. Which ultra-power stylist is now playing in Kayne’s [sic] camp for his blue chip Paris showing. And it IS a Paris showing kids!” is as ambiguous as it is suggestive.
All of these slips of the mouth–from big-name industry players who should know better, no less–definitely reek of a major publicity stunt, but for what we’re not sure. While all signs point to a Kanye West fashion show, at this point, we almost feel like that’s too obvious. What’s your take?
