Following a first collaboration for Spring/Summer 2012, Kanye West has teamed up once again with the Italian shoe designer Guiseppi Zanotti to create a highly graphic heel. Inspired by 2012's Cruel Summer compilation, which brought together most of the artists signed to the rapper and producer's G.O.O.D. Music label, the white heels feature wings in a nod to the 3D album artwork. Available now at colette.
To celebrate the launch of her brand new magazine 25, model Anja Rubik has teamed up with Kanye West and director Barnaby Roper to create a short film dedicated to the theme of the first issue – eroticism. The idea was to create an aesthetically beautiful version of porn. When speaking about the film Rubik said”It’s funny. We talked about how porn looks these days, and he agreed with me that there’s no porn out there that is beautiful aesthetically and integrates fashion to make a beautiful image…I thought it would be really interesting to make it seem like we were entering Kanye’s head.”
I’m about halfway through the rather kinky bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey and this video reminds me of the red room of pain that Ana explores with Mr Grey. Anyone else reading it?
