I could easily dress like that for the next 6 months (ok, I don’t got the body nor the hair and even less the face, just talking about the clothes).
Dude is really killing it at Givenchy.
Props to Dansk magazine, photographer Michael Schwartz and stylist Morgan Hamada Ruiz. Nice fashion editorial.
Kanye West’s style evolution during the last couple of years (click on the above image to see it bigger).
From right (oldest) to left (up-to-date):
1: “Louis Vuitton Don” phase, when he decided it was high time to step his fashion game up.
2: “I wear Women shirt” phase, when he decided wearing Céline design, even from the women line, was being avant-gardist
3 to 5: “All black Givenchy everything” phase, when he managed to get acquainted with Riccardo Tisci, the designer himself being inspired by rap, dark side of the force and religion at the time.
6 & 7: Are we entering an “All white 3.1 Phillip Lim” phase? Kanye West was in head-to-toe white for BET Awards yesterday and we still don’t know if it was some irony trick since it’s an “all black” event (B.E.T standing for Black Entertainment Television). Wait and see…
In the fashion world, every season has its favorite accessory you’ll find in 75% of fashion magazine editorial: there has been the Balenciaga Sprin/Summer 2011 RTW Cut Out Boots, the Prada Fall/Winter 2011 Creeper Brogues, and what we’ve got for the Fall/Winter 2012 season is (will be) the Givenchy face jewellery. The nose rings to be more precise.
Riccardo Tisci first showed it while unvealing his Fall/Winter 2012/13 collection for men and then impose it during his Spring/Summer 2012 Couture show in late January.
This nose ring by Givenchy was born as an ostensive and opulent accessory thought to totally merge with the rest of collection, aiming to give the final touch to a brave, dark and gothic aesthetic.
The good point is that if you’re bold enough to wear it, you won’t have to pierce your nostril, since it hangs from the wearer’s septum.
Be sure you’ll see it a lot (or some Ersatz) during the following months as the following images (covers or editorial) intimate:
Givenchy must be really grateful to Riccardo Tisci since it’s because of his work that the Maison is flourishing again, just like the pansies on that wonderful silk scarf.
