Recently, Kanye West has been using his Twitter rants to share with the world which designers he wants to work with. Last week, he said he hopes to collaborate with Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, and Raf Simons. Today, he also revealed that he wants to steal designer Demna Gvasalia from Balenciaga.

Gvasalia was named the creative director for the French fashion house after Alexander Wang stepped down from his position last year. The Georgian-born designer is also the founder of the rising brand Vêtements, which 'Ye has been a big fan of since its launch. Prior to starting his own label Gvasalia worked for labels like Louis Vuitton and Maison Martin Margiela, so he might actually be the closest Kanye will ever get to working with the elusive Margiela. Kanye also had the revelation that wants to start selling winter clothes in winter, which is something Gvasalia started doing with Vêtements this season

Since Gvasalia is rather new to his position at Balenciaga, he probably won't be leaving anytime soon. But, we would like to see a collaboration between these two.
