Rapper, ranter and husband of reality TV queen Kim K, Kanye West has been captured in both pictures and words for T Magazine’s “Culture Issue,” revealing yet more of his sincerity for a life working in fashion.
In his interview with T Mag, West explains his intentions to change the industry he’s desperate to be a part of, saying;
“Before the Internet, music was really expensive. People would use a rack of CDs to show class, to show they had made it. Right now, people use clothes to telegraph that.
I want to destroy that. The very thing that supposedly made me special — the jacket that no one could get, the direct communications with the designers — I want to give that to the world.”
So far, Kanye has attempted to prove himself in fashion with a collaborations with brands including Nike and A.P.C, and via the style revolution of his wife, Kim Kardashion-West, but it’s his recent design effort – titled Yeezy Season 1 and created with Adidas – from which he’s declared his true intent in breaking into the industry, revealing in his interview;
“I dreamed, since I was a little kid, of having my own store where I could curate every shoe, sweatshirt and colour. I have sketches of it. I cried over the idea of having my own store.”
In the photoshoot, ‘Ye is captured by Juergen Teller and styled by Joe McKenna in London, looking raw and rather peaceful.
