Kanye West posed alongside wife Kim Kardashian at the MET Gala in New York. While Kim went all glam with her Balmain look, Kanye pushed the boundaries of the event by pairing his custom encrusted Balmain denim jacket with his FEAR OF GOD Selvedge Vintage Indigo Jeans.
Though the polar opposite from the usual black tie attire that the MET Ball is known for, I actually do find Kanye’s choice to wear denim to be an appropriate fit for the Manus x Machina theme of the night. There is a lot technology and craftsmanship involved when working with denim. Whether it be updating the classic fabric to fit modern times with different stretch mixes to the actual design and placement of each detail. Denim has evolved, yet it still holds the same classic values and approach just as much as a couture house. You can click here to purchase FEAR OF GOD from FWRD.
