Do not sh*t on Yeezy’s ability to make nifty clothes for pretty ch*cks. He does not play that sh*t! Kanye really loves fashion clothes. There is just no stopping him. Can’t be mad at that type of energy. It’s funny because Women’s Wear Daily was one of the outlets that had negative editorial on Kanye’s show. However they also scored this diatribe Yeezy went on after the showing off his line at “Paris hot spot Club Silencio”.
Initially obscured by the throng of revelers, West grabbed a microphone and launched into a stream-of-consciousness, obscenity-laced tirade. After thanking his team and industry figures including Scott and Olivier Theyskens for their presence, he laid into his skeptics.
“Thank you for anybody that didn’t believe, because they motivated us to break our boundaries,” he said.
“We don’t know what the reviews will be, we don’t know what they will say, but I got a chance to go to Italy and feel those fabrics. I begged Louis Vuitton to let me do more shoes after my shoes sold out in two weeks, and they did not. I begged Nike, I begged this company to let me do it. And I took out motherf—ing loans to get the best models, to get the best designers, to get the best venue. I gave you everything that I had.
“This is my first collection. Please be easy. Please give me a chance to grow. This is not some celebrity s—. I don’t f— with celebrities. I f— with the creatives in this room, the amazing people who spend every day of their life trying to make the world a more beautiful place.
“The amount of people that tried to get me a celebrity f—ing deal. They said, ‘You need to do boot-cut jeans, or you won’t sell.’ Shut the f— up ! Or Hedi Slimane in the motherf—ing Mercer, sitting with me, saying, ‘Stop giving them your ideas, Kanye. Do your own thing.’ Hedi Slimane! To feel so frustrated. And I thank anybody who came to this party, everybody who supported, everybody who believed, because people thought it was a joke, and maybe people still do, but I can only grow from this point,” he concluded.
And with that, his DJ segued into Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness.”
