Are you a fashion designer in Paris looking for a job? If so, you’re in luck: Kanye West may be hiring.
We heard from a reliable source that West, who did not plan a runway show for this Paris fashion week (but did get his secret concert reviewed by Tim Blanks), is interviewing designers to assemble a design team. He’s also, we hear, briefed people on what he wants his next collection to look like: “sexy Margiela.”
Which is not surprising considering how heavily Margiela plays into both his song lyrics and personal wardrobe. We wonder if he’s fallen out of love with Givenchy, which was almost too strong an influence on his last collection.
So what will pregnant Kim Kardashian do while Kanye’s in Paris working on his line? According to InStyle UK, she may be coming with him. The magazine reports that West is rumored to be moving to Paris for two months to work on both music and fashion, because he likes the city’s “creative vibe.”
While they’re there, Kimye might as well start working on the baby’s wardrobe, too. Watch out for the couple at Bonpoint scouting inspiration for the inevitable Kanye for Kids line. Or maybe that, too, will have a “sexy Margiela” vibe. Margiela for babies: somebody’s gotta do it.
