Kanye West at Coachella

Kanye West Coachella

I’m not here to talk about Kanye’s performance at Coachella 2011, I’m here to discuss more important issues like how he ROCKED THE SHIT out of a printed silk Céline shirt from the women’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection. No, that wasn’t a typo. Kanye’s been a big fan of androgynous fashion for years now and made his love for Phoebe Philo (Creative Director of Céline) known with a name-check in ‘Dark Fantasy’ on his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

I’ve never really been that into Kanye’s look. It’s always been a little too over the top and a little too matchy-matchy for my liking. But with his Céline shirt almost completely unbuttoned, a chest-full of gold chains (come on, like he was ever going to leave those at home), Balmain skinny jeans, Nike Air Yeezy 2’s and an interesting assortment of beaded bracelets and string wrist ties, my opinion quickly changed. This is how your do summer at an indie music festival in California peoples. Well, it is when you’re one of the biggest music stars in the world.
