Project Runway’s Tim Gunn Calls Kanye West’s Fashion Line ‘Dumb, Basic’
“I’m totally perplexed about why the fashion industry has not looked at these frankly dumb, basic clothes and cried, ‘Hoax! Hoax!’ I mean, Kanye West is a sphinx without a riddle. I just don’t understand why people are so in awe. I mean look at this, they’re basically wearing stretch undergarments… I hope [that people aren’t buying them]. I think the only thing dumber than these clothes would be the people who would buy these clothes.”
— Openly gay Project Runway fashion guru Tim Gunn talking smack about Kanye West’s Yeezy fashion line which debuted recently at New York Fashion Week. The fashion line has been described as “Jackets seemingly lifted directly from military surplus stores, body-con minidresses and spandex bodysuits in various shades of beige”.
