Kanye West is showing some lovin’ to his favorite brand: Louis Vuitton. The self-described Louis Vuitton Don has been the talk of the fashion town, as he often sports metrosexual styles that are out of this world. But Kanye wants to be more than just a style icon. He, in fact, doesn’t want to be just another celebrity designer.
Ye wrote in his blog, “I want to and will be the real thing. I will not just be a ‘celebrity designer’.”
We weren’t the only ones wowed by Ye’s determination. Peeps at Vuitton are also applauding him for this. The New York times interviewed avant-garde designer, Raf Simons, and he said “I was blown away from the planet when he told me. I know he’s very serious about this -I dont take it as a joke- but how can I imagine him being my intern? It’s a very extreme situation.”
We love Ye’s seriousness, but let’s play a little game, people.
If you were Louis Vuitton designers, would you hire Kanye West as your intern?
