Earlier this week, Kanye West launched his second clothing line with Yeezy Season 2. The clothes themselves are a rainbow of earth tones and apocalyptic chic, but that wasn’t the only thing turning heads—Mr. West debuted a new song with Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign.
Kanye hit the interview circuit in wake of Season 2, and his interview with Vanity Fair gave insight into his design process and just how serious he is about becoming POTUS.
On the color palette of his clothing:
It was only colors of human beings and the way these palettes of people work together and really just stressing the importance of color, the importance of that to our sanity, these Zen, monochrome palettes.
On his plans to run for President:
When I run for president, I’d prefer not to run against someone. I would be like “I want to work with you.” I think all the people running right now have something that each of the others needs. But the idea of this separation and this gladiator battle takes away from the main focus that the world needs help and the world needs all the people in a position of power or influence to come together.
Sweatshirts are fucking important. That might sound like the funniest quote ever. How can you say all this stuff about running for president in 2020 and then say sweatshirts are important? But they are.
On his album title:
It’s currently called Swish. I’m forgetting even what the last name of it was now.
