DW by Kanye West

DW by Kanye West had its first fashion show in Paris this week and although the front row A-listers such as Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra, Anna Wintour, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Terry Richardson, Olivier Theyskens, Ciara and Jeremy Scott fashion critics have dished out a mixed response.Even his friendly foe Lindsay Lohan flew in just to give back some dirty feedback on his range after he rudely stated after her fashion show that her show was much the same as  9/11 for celebrities doing fashion”  Lindsay was heard saying that "next season Kanye should get a tailor so clothes might fit. Models swimming in some looks.”

Ottomode tends to disagree with the critics although we do agree with Lindsay’s remark to a certain degree as some of the models although still looking stunning did look a little lost in some of the styles. But on the other hand for his first show he has made an impressionable start.. was it love at first sight yes! But when you really look at the garments you did realize they where lacking some extra Kanye pizzazz.
His ready to wear S/S 12  a bit of a mix between a commercial and simple street vibe with the clash of leather or fur teamed with exposed zippers. Maybe he could have pulled some more original ideas though as most of his range had a amateur Alexander Wang cross Celine feel.
Otto mode was expecting the outspoken muso to have a bit more block colour in the range we feel the one pair of Jocky pants wasn’t quite enough. Let’s just see what his next range looks like before we all jump on the roast of fashion designer Kanye West bandwagon..
