Kanye's Style Crew

So Kanye and friends are truly initiating a Style Revolution in Paris these days...


...love it or hate it, their looks are eye catching and luxe.
A few questions/observations:
*How long do you think it took each one to get dressed?
*Self styled or stylist?
*Those Goyard and LV cases cost normal people a month's rent. Kanye can get down, but can his friend?
*Leopard pants: self made or vintage?
*If they were actually some sort of group, what would they do, and what would you call them?

I'm divided. On the one hand, I love the pageantry and showmanship of fashion, and the bold statements one can make with clothes. On the other hand, I think good style is organic (or should at least appear to be) and this seems loaded down with artifice. The gentlemen are to be commended for their risk taking, but there's also a whiff of desperation and absurdity about the whole thing that makes it a bit unappealing. Just my 0.02.

hmmm! hmmmm! mmmmmmm. a 70s, 80s, 90's fashion gumbo mish mash mix. opposite of effortless style. it's just too much in my humble opinion for everyday or ever. cute for school boys having fun ONLY.

I'm agree with the above comments. The pic certainly catches your eye but it is simply too much. Let's keep it classic chic i always say. We don't belive you, you need more people Kanye.

at first i thought oh no they are way too much but then i look at the pic again and i've decide that those leopard pants are just too much. YUCK!!!!!!! everyone else looks alright. too many layers tho. =/

I second the emotion of Annonymous#1. But to take it to another level, I think Kanye has lost his mind, and in an attempt to stand out, he's really looking rather strangly these days. I don't think he's operating on a full deck. And for the rest of them, they all look like a bunch of followers, or possibly styled by Kanye--Can I hear OVERDONE!!!

Gemma said...

Im more interested in what they are carrying in those cases! Is it just for show? or they really need to take a case full of stuff to a fashion show?

degamarie said...

I concur with upscale-resale. As for a name for the group I would call then Kanye and The New Zoo Revue (blame leopard pants).

- 3 hours each
- No they can't afford it, it's a recession.
- Self styled AND stylists
- Vintage
- Swagger Snatchers

I agree with you Upscale-Resale!!! Style and fashion aside, Kanye is not all there. I dont know if he is trying to hard or is he still trying to find himself. I think they are officially the new Village People!

Miss E said...

I also concur with everything Fatima J said!

probably takes them longer then most women
Don C is Kanye's manager so he might be able to afford that case lol (guy on the left)
Ti$A designs for Kanye's Pastelle so I doubt he has a stylist (leopard pants) and what stylist would allow those pants on him lol
Guy on the far right has a lot going on .. a lot. he doesn't stand out as much as any one else but that vest could have stayed at home

first of all those LV cases -dies and goes to heaven- second of all I dont care what year it is or if it's vintage those leopard pants are a HELL NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO omg just NO NO NO NO NO
Kanye is giving off this " my life is going to shit so im gonna stunt on you hoes fashion wise to feel better about myself " "/

not hating, but I think Kanye needs his mom or Alexis. Maybe they used to ground him b/c now he's just off and probably letting pple who don't care about him fill his head with nonsense.

sewdope said...

if they were a band i'd call them EARTH WIND & FIRE. this has all been done before. nothing is truly original.

It certainly takes them a few hours.

I'm sure a stylist was involved.

These are probably people who work in the record industry and have money. And notice that only Kanye, Fonzworth (who probably took some dimes from P. Diddy), and they guy in the black and red.

Those are probably women's pants.

"A Hot Mess". If I saw them, individually I would think "they have interesting style and I appreciate it" (whether or not I like it) but together they are too much. It looks like a group of HS girls who went to one person's house and decided to get ready so they could look alike. The black and red jacket is too similar to Kanye's red and black one yesterday.

Personally, I think that Fonzworth looks very classic.

JA Divinity said...

LOL!!! Not the Village People!!!
Kanye' and "nem" are looking more like a 2009 version of Prince and the Revolution!!! Only thing tho, Prince did it BETTER!!!
