Kanye West just showed his first womenswear collection in Paris, under the watchful eye of a star-studded audience including Carine Rotifeld, Stefano Tonchi, Anna Wintour, the Olsen twins and… Lindsay Lohan. Expectations were high and rumors have been flying that the price point is astronomical, but Kanye showed a pretty straight-forward collection of body con minis and cutout dresses that you will no doubt find on Kim Kardashian very soon. Seeing as how West has no discernable qualifications as a fashion designer, the collection was completed with the help of London-based designer Katie Eary. Reviews were mixed but not scathing.
However. The man sent a fur backpack down the runway. A fur backpack. Here it is on Aussie model Bambi Northwood-Blythe. How much do you guys wager this thing costs? I say around $29k, which puts it safely in between Victoria Beckham’s $14,000 not-Birkin and the The Row’s $39,000 alligator backpack.
