Every fashion week, style enthusiasts play a waiting game for Kanye West to pop up, and today they were blessed with two gems. Kanye was spotted today at shows for Céline and Givenchy during Paris Fashion Week, which he showed up in his trademark Rick Owens DRKSHDW jacket and visvim sneakers. He was joined front row at the Givenchy show by his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, and Ciara as he took in the designs.
It's not mind-boggling that Kanye choose both of these fashion labels to make his presence known. He's a personal friend with Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci, and he wore a Céline women's blouse during his performance at Coachella in 2011 and recently bought Miley Cyrus five pairs of Céline slippers which she mentioned in a recent Rolling Stone interview.
Kanye's hype in the fashion world couldn't be at a bigger pitch. His BBC 1 interview with Zane Lowe expressed his love and ideas for clothing design, and there was even a rumor that he'd rehash his eponymous clothing line with help from former Balmain designer Christophe Decarnin.
This seems like the perfect venue for Kanye to soak up inspiration for his much-awaited return to the runway, and also a great opportunity for Kardashian to wear bespoke Givenchy that she flossed today on Instagram.
