There have been rumors, and Kanye all but confirmed it on Twitter, but now we know with certainty that we can look forward to (or dread) a second Kanye West collection and runway show. Karla Otto, Kanye West’s PR agency, confirmed to WWD that West will show at 9.30 p.m. on March 6. The venue has yet to be confirmed.
All we’ve been able to gather about the line since last season is that it’s called Kanye West (not DW), he moved to London to work on it (and we hear he’s getting help from some pretty legit designers there), he wants everyone to give him a chance to grow and critics will probably be pretty hesitant to do that. Also, based on this tweet, the second since his infamous two-hour tirade, we can expect some crepe chiffon.
As far as we know, the widely panned spring 2012 collection hasn’t been picked up by any retailers or really gotten off the ground in any way. So, it will obviously be interesting to see what happens this time. He’s clearly passionate and wants to succeed and was not blind to the criticism, so this collection will have to be an improvement, right?
Hope he performs well under pressure!
