At the start of the week we saw Kanye wearing a piece of his own clothing line Pastelle, we can now inform you that Pastelle will be released to us normal people this coming January. “Hurrah!” Kanye fans cheer, I sigh in disbelief. I sigh further because we are not done with the College Drop Out’s assault on the fashion world as his signature Nike’s the Air Yeezy will be released in March. The Air Yeezy, a bastardisation of Air Jordan’s, Bapestars and pure evil from the mind of Mr West can be seen on the man himself, along with another Pastelle piece through the jump.

Ksubi x Kanye sunglasses collection

It’s rare to see a hip-hop artist so readily accepted by the fashion elite like Kanye West has been. The only other contender is Andre 3000. However, Mr. West is on a level of his own when it comes to designer collaborations. In addition to his Air Yeezys, his clothing label Pastelle also has an upcoming sunglasses collection with Ksubi.

While they look great, they also look pretty similar to the American Apparel sunglasses Isabelle posted yesterday. As the amount of sunglass designs are limited at best, this usually wouldn’t be a problem. But seeing as the AA glasses are going for £30 and Ksubi’s own glasses are retailing at around £100, it’s a bit ridiculous to try and sell these for $2000. If price is no object to you, then you can get these from October.

Nike Air Yeezy

At the moment, Kanye West can seemingly do no wrong. Ignoring the downsides – and the urge to make an incredibly tasteless joke – things are going pretty well for Mr West. So, you can understand the palpable excitement around his new trainers called the Air Yeezy’s. But are they any good?

As much as I want to like them, I’d have to say no. It’s just too busy. The design seems to be going in several different directions, ending up with a trainer that looks like four trainers cut and pasted into one. That said, I do have a preference for clean and simple trainers, so maybe these will appeal to those who like their Dunks splattered in different colours.
