Kanye West proposes his own revised fashion calendar
Over the weekend, Kanye West tweeted: "No more fashion calendar... I'm going Mad Max... 6 collections a year... 3 albums a year..." But of course, Vanessa Friedman of The New York Times logically explained that "six collections is not as radical and 'Mad Max'-like as it might sound," and that six is generally the norm at Chanel, Dior and Valentino. Friedman also noted that mass retailers like Zara and H&M drop a collection a month. {Twitter, NYT}
