I was in the mood today to fully decked myself in a nice ensemble, or should I say a blog worthy ensemble. While having an intense argument about what's going on right now in the fashion industry, I couldn't help but brought up Kanye West and his influence on menswear dressing. It's funny how few years back, Kanye was not that important in the field of fashion, people in the fashion industry were not giving him importance and always take his ideas a joke (according to a reliable source). He is the black sheep of the industry back in the day, and now moving fast forward to 2015, he's now one of the most celebrated and influential celebrities in terms of fashion and design. People seems to love Kanye a lot, especially those fashion savvy kids today that are trying too hard to copy his style. I think Kanye also contributed a little bit with the rise of street wear dressing, more guys nowadays are influenced by Kanye's easy, relaxed and edgy personal style. And for the record, I'm not a Kanye fan.
