If Anyone Still Cares About Kanye West’s Fashion Rants, Louis Vuitton Is His Latest Target

Clearly using his Yeezus tour and its accompanying radio interviews as a bully pulpit, Kanye West is now lashing out against Louis Vuitton, following recent tirades against Hedi Slimane and Fendi. Speaking yesterday to 92.3 NOW radio station in New York, with his fiancée in tow, the human grudge whined bitterly that LV’s vice-president, Yves Carcelle, rejected his request to meet during the Paris collections in October. Never mind that the house was preparing for an especially important show, Marc Jacobs’ last, and were in the midst of high-level discussions with Nicolas Ghesquière.

“I was made for this moment,” said the rapper. “What happened was, while I was out in Paris, I wanted to meet with the head of Louis Vuitton. He said I don’t understand why we need to meet with you. I said, ‘Let me explain to you why you need to meet with me. Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you want to meet with me? Now do you want to meet with me?’ Influence. They think that I don’t realize my power.”

That’s right, he’s threatening to call on New Yorkers to boycott Louis Vuitton during the holidays because of a perceived snub. His extreme narcissism would be annoying if it didn’t produce hilarious videos like this…
