Kanye Doesn’t Pull a Kanye, Finally Defends His Adidas CollectionDespite all of his best efforts, Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 1 Adidas Collection has been the subject of criticism and debate in the industry. Some lauded the clothing, while others very publicly spoke out against it. Amidst all of the clamor and buzz surrounding his Adidas line, Kanye has remained uncharacteristically silent––until now.
After Kelly Cutrone called Kanye a ‘joke’ and the creator of New York Fashion Week, Fern Mallis, told the New York Post she was “kind of over” him, the star has finally taken to Twitter to defend his line. The fashion world held its breath, waiting for another Kanye outburst, but the rapper kept his cool and instead started a serious dialogue about his career in the industry.
To Fern Mallis: I just want you to understand that attempting to do clothing has been very difficult— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 20, 2015
and I have encountered countless amounts of bigotry along the way.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 20, 2015
The designer ended his Twitter defense by telling Fern that if she wanted to have a real conversation with him they could meet at The Spotted Pig for drinks. It appears that The Spotted Pig is Kanye’s go-to for making up; the rapper previously met up with new friend Taylor Swift there for dinner.
