Kanye West’s Second Womenswear Collection Was Almost As Bad As His First

Kanye West's Second Womenswear Collection Was Almost As Bad As His First

…Because there was less of it!

Kanye Westwho we had a field day mocking last season–showed his second womenswear collection in Paris Tuesday and it would appear that he took some of that widespread criticism to heart: West showed only 20 looks and drew a few favorable comparisons to Givenchy and Costume Nationale (HAH!), thanks to his rumored army of high-profile consultants.

Accessories: All The Best Shoes & Bags At Louis Vuitton

The Spring 2012 Louis Vuitton show (as we mentioned) was all ladylike: Marc Jacobs crafted pretty dresses amid some frills, some metallic details, in tweed and feathers with practical pumps in a soft palette of pale yellow, robin’s egg and white. …And yes, the runway a was carrousel.
