Kanye West is known for his fashion foward trends, but this one is a bit much–even for Kanye West, however; he’s not making this crap up. It’s actually been on the runways (yes)… Kanye West was snapped hitting up the Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 2013 Haute-Couture show in Paris, France.
The Umit Benan Fall/Winter 2013 collection went from dapper to eccentric as masked models took to the runway stage. Modelled by graffiti artists, this striking collection featured a rich textured palette of materials.
This luxe sportswear collection shines a light on classic outerwear and suiting that is showcased next to edgy athleticwear and exaggerated accent pieces. From oversized jackets and utilitarian sportswear to a fresh and youthful take on office attire, the Umit Benan Fall/Winter 2013 collection opposes traditional style ideals.
This unexpected runway show masks its graffiti artist models and shows that each is a regular man who hides his anonymous alter ego. Whether dressed up or down, the models prove that art comes in many unexpected forms for many people.
