Kanye West gave another passion-filled rant to a crowd of people in New York yesterday.
Unfortunately, it did not take place at a fashion week event, but at a listening party for Pusha T in Brooklyn. We guess after a few days of going to a bunch of fashion shows, he needed to let loose, drink some Grey Goose (as he admits he has done), and start screaming into a microphone.
Most of it didn’t make a whole lot of sense (does he mention Ferris Bueller at one point?)–all we know for sure is that he and his crew “make good music” and “don’t give a fuck,” but he does throw in a dig at certain fashion designers who aren’t up to his standards.
He specifically calls out designers who put numbers on the backs of t-shirts, saying something about making “Chinese t-shirts, trying to throw numbers on the back of they shit,” and “starting a t-shirt line and putting numbers on the back of their shit; fuck you!!”
Brian Lichtenberg, who is perhaps most known for such tees, comes to mind, but it’s something a lot of designers have dabbled in lately, what with the resurgence of the sporty trend–a trend that shows no sign of stopping if this week’s runways are any indication. Tommy Hilfiger, for instance, showed several jersey-like tops and dresses with numbers on the back.
I guess it’s safe to presume we won’t be seeing any of that in Ye’s upcoming unisex line. Oh, and if you decide to apply for one of the jobs he’s advertising for on LinkedIn, we suggest going with an outfit that’s number-free.
