When I first heard that Kanye planned on releasing a fashion line with the help of Harper’s Australia wunderkind Christine Centenera, I admit that I was intrigued. Kanye is a passionate and vocal fashion enthusiast as well as having been a fixture in front rows for years. Christine is, of course, just ridiculously cool and a favourite with street style photographers and bloggers.
The rap superstar debuted his first collection in Paris on Saturday night and the results of the collaboration are (in my opinion) pretty disappointing. Ill-fitting and poorly cut, the line looks as though it has plagiarised from several major fashion houses including both Celine and Balmain. I was very underwhelmed.
