Balmain May Design Kanye West’s Tour Wardrobe

We hear from an inside source that Kanye West is planning to break back into the spotlight with costumes designed by Christophe Decarnin for Balmain. It was only a matter of time before the trash-talking rapper adopted the brand with an over-the-top glitter quotient for his stage pieces.

Spotted out and about in numerous Balmain men’s looks, the self-proclaimed “voice of this generation” is having Decarnin custom-remake a portion of the Balmain fall ’10 collection, specifically seventies-centric pantsuits, cutaway coats, and gilded jeans. This comes as no surprise considering Kanye’s been a front-row fixture at Decarnin’s shows for the past few seasons. Kanye in showy gold brocade pants and a 17th-century pirate blazer? Sounds like a perfect fit.
