Whether he is on stage or not, Kanye West has always been an exhibitionist. It is a man who directly compared himself to Jesus Christ. But still, his conviction is just as strong when it comes to fashion, not just by calling American design legend Ralph Lauren his "daddy," but also by having one of today's most recognizable and successful personal style.
West has a talent for maintaining trends before they even end up in the fashion scene. High end sportswear on the red carpet, for example, became big by Kanye. And of course because he has worked with Nike, adidas, APC, Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Guiseppe Zanotti - all in preparation for launching his Yeezy line of clothing and the always sold out Yeezy sneakers.
In the new Netflix series "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction" hosted by David Letterman, David Letterman lets himself be completely styled by Kanye West himself in the latest collection of Yeezy.
Most of Kanye's clothes are black and white, but those together are never worn together. Because he is afraid of the waiter look. Kanye likes to keep it tonal. As Kanye often shows, a white tonal outfit must be crispy, so no dirty sneakers underneath.
A typical layering
Kanye does not do normal layering, if you look closely, he does it slightly different. He puts larger and heavier items over lighter and shorter items. But typical rules do not apply to Kanye, who likes to wear long tees under shorter sweats.
