If you’re a fan of the movie Zoolander then you will surely remember the fashion line that was based on the clothing worn by the homeless. “Derelicte” was the name given to the fashion line designed by Will Ferrell’s character Mugatu. It is described by Mugatu in the film as “a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique.”
Judging by Kanye West’s new fashion line it seems he’s a fan of the movie also! Kanye’s new fashion line has been described as “hideous.”
The music mogul has persisted with his fashion lines hoping to make it big, just like Victoria Beckham has.
During his Yeezy Season 2 fashion show for New York Fashion Week, Kanye unveiled his range of questionable fashion.
The rapper was criticised for putting a hefty price tag on clothing that some said were reminiscent of the homeless or extras from The Walking Dead. One male model even unexpectedly lit up a cigarette on the runway.
“Kanye about to make being homeless in style, spend your life savings to look like you have none,” joked one social media user.
Ranging from sand to khaki, the line featured skin tight leotards, leggings and oversized sporty garments sparked a mixed response on Twitter.
Designer Naeem Khan supported Kanye’s range by stating: “I am confident that the fans of the brand and those in the industry who truly appreciate the art of design and craftsmanship, will come out to support us. I am thrilled with the new collection and we are looking forward to a great show.”
West’s fashion show attracted A-list guests including Anna Wintour, Riccardo Tisci, Debbie Harry, Courtney Love, Drake, Lorde, Sting, Jaden Smith, Helena Christensen and his sisters-in-law Khloe and Kourtney, and Kendall Jenner.
The rapper also released a new song during Yeezy 2, titled I feel it, which got his daughter North West up and dancing.
Sitting on his wife Kim Kardashian’s lap and sporting matching beige outfits, the two-year-old made her presence known throughout the show.
Among the models who walked the show were Kylie Jenner and Bella Hadid.
What do you think of the new range? Hit or miss?
