The Insanity of Modern Fashion: Kanye West Has Lost His Sense of Fashion & Yet He Has A Clothing Line?
Kanye West has lost a lot of things including his sense of fashion and yet the rapper continues to make headlines with his ‘hideous’ clothing line—with the latest being his runway showcase at New York Fashion Week.
Since Kanye is the man behind that ‘Yeezy 2’ clothing line, he easily filled his runway session at the New York Fashion Week with stars—but his clothing line ended up being branded ‘hideous’.
That is even being generous with words—because his fellow rapper-Ice Tee said they honestly looked like “future slave gear.” And we are yet to meet anyone who disagrees.
Reports were generally like this; Kanye West, the rapper-turned-designer presented his second season Yeezy x Adidas shoe collection, overshadowed with his own clothing line this week—and as usual, the homeless theme was back.

The clothing looked everything like something a homeless person wears but the hefty price tag means the richest homeless person would even struggle to make a purchase.
Kanye West’s ‘Walking Dead’ clothing line did not receive criticisms from just those we would describe as mere fashion enthusiasts but the experts came hard on him too.
Cathy Horyn, a top American fashion journalist and critic who has not really been a fan of Kanye’s sense of fashion since his NYFW debut returned with the punches.
In Cathy Horyn’s previous review of his first NYFW collection, she said the fashion world was too infatuated with Kanye, and that a Stockholm Syndrome-like effect was preventing her peers from fairly reviewing his show—and giving him the criticism he deserved.
So this time, she went in hard with the truth as she wrote a total takedown, slamming both Kanye West and the fashion world.
After saying the models looked like POWs in Spanx, she wrote; “This second round of drab, broken-down basics proved he can’t be taken seriously as a designer, but nevertheless many people in fashion do seem to take West seriously — they keep showing up expectantly for his performances — and that makes them fools.”
All over the world, fashion has become something weird—we’ve substituted creativity with cheap silliness, pushing decency and beauty out of the room.
