Low-hanging leather pants. Bomber jackets. Work boots. These are all staples in Kanye West‘s wardrobe. But there is one item that the rapper is currently obsessed with — a velour, hooded sweatshirt which he’s been wearing quite a lot in the past two weeks, making him the new ‘I Really Love My’ king.
West has been busy working the Fashion Week circuit, from this own Adidas show to surprise performances to this touching moment with Ralph Lauren (who managed to make the star smile). On Wednesday, he sat front row at the Jeremy Scott show in his trusted hoodie. And in fact it was the same exact outfit he wore around the city on Tuesday and to his dinner with Taylor Swift. (The odd couple is reportedly going to collaborate on some music!) The only difference between the two looks are his undershirt, which appears to be a shade lighter in the second photo.
When west arrived to N.Y.C. after the Grammys he was seen sporting the topper, the same one he performed in on stage at the music award show — and that sparked the Juicy zip-up comparisons on Twitter.
One person that takes West and his fashion choices very seriously? Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci. He recently told Details magazine that despite what the fashion world thinks of Kimye, he’s never turned his back on them.
“I didn’t care what people thought about Kim,” Tisci said. “In the beginning, I met her because of my respect for Kanye, and then I liked her a lot and we became friends. I got killed because of this. But I didn’t care.”
Tisci also proved his loyalty to the couple when he designed West’s tuxedo and his wife’s long-sleeve, lace gown for their wedding last May.
“And this is why, when they got married, they asked me to dress them,” he shared. “They say, ‘You’ve always been with us. You’ve been a real friend.’ If I like somebody, I like somebody. If I don’t like somebody, I don’t like somebody.”
