Look outside ladies and gents, because pigs may officially be flying. Well, either that or Kanye West has finally grown into a mature, more responsible adult. During a recent interview with Power 106, the once self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton Don denounced the brand, revealing that he wouldn’t design any more for the high-end fashion house because their prices are too high.
“If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now, I wouldn’t. The prices are too extreme. I wouldn’t want to use my message to have kids saving up that much to be a part of what the ideals are. That’s the problem to me with luxury,” he said.
Kanye went on to commend brands like H&M for offering affordable clothing to teenyboppers and adults alike.
“And that’s one thing that’s good– I don’t necessarily agree with everything that H&M and Zara does, but one thing that’s good about it, is that they were able to break that idea that creativity and all of these things that you really want have to cost like a million dollars.”
“The prices are really based on this perception and this idea of luxury that gets sold to you, where you see like a girl laid out on a rock and on the side of the rock, you see like a Gucci ad at the bottom of it. I’ve realized that the only real luxury is time. That’s the only thing that you can’t get back and time with your family. People need to understand that true art is the art of life itself,” he continued.
Well check him out, sounding like a grownup and stuff. It seems that fatherhood is doing him well!
