About 18 months ago, Kanye set the world on fire with, like, roughly one million quotables from his interview with Zane Lowe of BBC Radio One. He joined Zane again yesterday to talk about fashion, music and design, amongst a few other things. It was a different Kanye this time around: a bit more thoughtful, philosophical and big-picture. Becoming a dad will do that to you, or so I hear. Zane actually had trouble keeping Kanye on track to talk about music and the new album coming out this year as 'Ye constantly veered off into fashion and design territory, which, obviously, is perfect for us.

With references to couture, Kering Group, Raf Simons, Ralph Lauren, Louise Wilson of Central Saint Martins (the recounting of her death brought him to tears and halted the conversation in what is surely the interview's signature moment), his wildly hyped Adidas Originals Yeezy Season 1 collection and Elon Musk, Kanye was hovering all around the worlds of creativity and design. Some statements were hypocritical, which he immediately copped to, while others aspirational and some even completely relatable and realistic, something we're still just getting used to when it comes to Kanye. We did our best to extract a few fashion-related gems from the 40-minute interview, collected above.
