Update (2/17/16): It looks like there are a few other designers Kanye West would like to work with. West took to Twitter again to say that a dream of his would be to work with Raf Simons, Helmut Lang, and Martin Margiela. Unfortunately for ' Ye, it is highly unlikely that Lang or Margiela will be working on any projects since they have both stepped away from their namesake brands. There might still be hope for Raf though.

Kanye West’s Twitter feed has caused an insane amount of drama lately. From defending his less-than-flattering lyrics toward Taylor Swift to shaming his ex Amber Rose to declaring Bill Cosby’s innocence, the dude has effectively pissed a lot of people off. So it makes sense he’s taking to Twitter to recruit new friends.
Earlier today, West sent out a post directed toward Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director of Louis Vuitton, as well as one of West’s icons. The tweet read: “Hey Nicolas Ghesquiere I grew up on Tron too… Let’s be best friends!!!”
Ghesquiere has been known to draw inspiration from scifi films and video games, like Minecraft, The Terminator, and, of course, Tron.
So is their mutual love for the 1980s movie enough to start a friendship? Only time will tell.
