Style Evolution: Kanye West
Rapper and producer Kanye West is known for his hard-hitting rhymes and amazing musical beats. He’s not only respected in the field of music, but also as a trendsetter who’s respected for his unique style.
In the beginning his style was urban-inspired, with a healthy dose of Polo Ralph Lauren in the mix. Remember his MTV Diary where he spends $10,000 on RL gear? He had most hip-hop kids scrambling to be fresh in Polo, too. Kanye also made high-end designer backpacks popular amongst the urban crowd, as well.
As his career progressed, Kanye switched up his style and started dressing up in more prestigious designer brands. He got the nickname “Louis Vuitton Don” and even came out with his own Louis Vuitton sneaker.
Now Kanye’s changing it up again. From his Paris Fashion Week appearance to his recent MTV VMA Awards performance, Yeezy stays sharp. Keep an eye on Mr. West—I’m certain he’ll be the one leading the next style revolution.
