Kanye West In Acne Front Row @ Mark Fast Fall 2012

For someone who is under a lot of pressure to produce his Fall 2012 collection, Kanye West looked as cool as a cucumber front row at Mark Fast’s Fall 2012 presentation during London Fashion Week on Monday.

Wearing a lot of denim, the rapper/designer added a mint Acne Spring 2012 sweater to his look.

He, of course, added the obligatory gold chains and his co-designed Nike Yeezy sneakers.

Kanye’s eagerly awaited Fall 2012 collection will be presented in Paris on March 6.

The designer has even moved to London to concentrate on collection.

Used to criticism, I’m sure Kanye is taking the pressure in his stride.

    I think the word is ‘urban’ not ‘ghetto’ FC. This is personal style. I like that he didn’t go the boring clean sterilized pastel route. I love when people put their personal twist on unexpected pieces.

      Since the term has clearly offended you, it has been removed

        I’m not being oversensitive.Casually using ‘ghetto’ to describe an accessory typically worn by black men is a pejorative term and is generally offensive to society and yes, me as a black man as well. And yes I know you’re black – makes no difference.

    that jean jacket is looking a bit tight/small for him

    A few years ago Kanye was one of the best dressed celebrities imo, now it seems like he is making more of an effort but for some reason looks worse.

    I would love this if it wasn’t for that shirt sleeve thingy hanging out at the bottom of the sweater.

    Paris fashion week? aren’t we the optimist. He should have learned his lessons and presented during New York Fashion week.

    He looks great!
    Love the mix of denim and the paler denim jeans go really well with the mint green sweater.
    Looking forward to seeing his next collection.

    haters get out!

    MINT is sooo the trendiest color of this season.. Kanye’s on point as usual.

      Love the mint, but too much denim

  9. MEME February 23, 2012 at 19:42 #

    O_o WTF????…

  10. EmmaWoodhouse February 23, 2012 at 19:46 #

    The jacket is too small, the mint color is too feminine, and the chains are silly. I guess I just don’t “get” rapper fashion.

    He manages to make everything ghetto/urban. Not in a good way either.

  12. Carolina February 23, 2012 at 20:57 #

    I like the colors but take offense with the discussion about ghetto/urban (code for black, btw).

    Can we make this about fashion instead? Didn’t we just look at a number of very over-the-top looks (blonds) at fashion week – where I do not recall one disparaging comment about any of the wild accessories being modeled?

    • Fashion Critic February 23, 2012 at 21:05 #

      OK, so should Caucasian people take offence to the term ‘Preppy’?

      Sorry, but I don’t understand how urban or even ghetto can be classed as offensive.

      We have urban style and urban music which is aimed and and consumed by people of ALL races. Jessie J’s music is considered urban as is her style, but she isn’t black.

      Please can we focus on fashion on not other issues.

        There are other words needing to be fussed over aside from ghetto and urban. Words that carry far more weight and are laced all over rap and r&b music. Offense should be taken at Kanye considering some the vulgarities that are part of his music lyrics and raps. Let’s look at the bigger picture before trying to patronize FC.

        • Tamia March 19, 2012 at 22:38 #

          FC,you don’t desrve any criticism for using the terms ghetto or urban..they both come from a place (projects/council estates) rather than race..projects & council estates are filled with all races and backgrounds not just black as a black woman myself it’s nonsense to be offended,don’t forget most rappers describe their style as ghetto fab so they’d take what you said as a compliment rather than a diss!

          • Fashion Critic March 19, 2012 at 23:31 #

            thank you Tamia.

            The term is colourless.

    I love it! 😀
