Kanye West goes on Twitter fashion rant, slams suit jackets
Rapper Kanye West, in a fresh Twitter rant, has said he hates suits and jackets, particularly on women.
The 38-year-old rapper also criticised people, who associate combat boots with “youth” and stylists who copy French designer Hedi Slimane, reported People magazine.
While on a flight back from Paris, West began: “I don’t personally like suit jackets anymore,” adding: “I especially hate suit jackets on women that was a groundbreaking idea 5 million years ago! ... I feel we are so stuck in the past and tradition.”
West then critiqued stylists for trying to bag younger clients with “blatant YSL looks” and stated “just cause somebody is wearing combat boots doesn’t mean it’s all of a sudden youth.”
The father of two explained that he came to Paris Fashion Week just for his designer friends Olivier Rousteing,
Riccardo Tisci and Demna Gvasalia, blasting the rest of the fashion world as “sooooooo fake.”
He also praised his friend, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld.
Going back to his dislike of suit jackets, West added, “I like T-shirts and women in yoga pants I live in LA that’s what people wear not sure why someone would put a suit jacket on with that.”
