Despite rumors to the contrary, Kanye West won't be showing a spring 2013 collection in Paris this season, his PR firm Karla Otto has confirmed to WWD. Could this be the end of Kanye West, fashion designer, as we know him? His first two attempts at joining the high fashion ranks weren't exactly well-received by critics, with only his wildly expensive Giuseppe Zanotti shoe collab going into production, and sold exclusively at Colette in Paris. His reps wouldn't comment on whether or not Kanye's line was going to be discontinued altogether.
We doubt this news will keep Kanye away from Paris Fashion Week entirely though, what with all the photo-ops a trip to the City of Lights might afford his mannequin gal pal Kimmy. The two were spotted together at several shows during the recent couture season and in NYC, and will undoubtedly be snapped around Paris in plenty of matching ensembles this time around, too.
