Kanye West has been spotted out in another piece of customised finery, this time a ‘UniverCity’ college jacket I suppose inspired by his educationally thematic album titles, complete with Murakami-illustrated bear motif on the back.
Speculation is leading as to whether the jacket is a part of his much anticipated clothing line Pastelle, which has been ‘coming soon’ for about two years. The only concrete releases coming so far are in the form of an eyewear linkup with Ksubi in October which will probably see a resurgance in those bastard shutter sunglasses.
So far, so Pharrell. The other ‘best dressed man in rap’ has already had his hand in sunglasses collaborations, letterman jackets and trainers with his Billionaire Boys Club line. It’ll be interesting to see if West will try his hand at some original pieces (a cut-and-sew line?) with Pastelle.
