Rumor: Kanye West is in Paris Designing a Collection for Spring 2012

Fashion breaks Kanye’s heart. He said so himself when he was named “Stylemaker of the Year” by the Accessories Council last year. Since then, he’s become a fixture at fashion shows (even if he had some trouble getting into the shows in Paris this past season), met with folks in the biz for advice on starting a line–like a professor at Central Saint Martins and A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou, and most recently collaborated with famed French graphic design and art direction team M/M to produce a collection of silk scarves.

The rapper obviously takes fashion seriously (I mean, the man performed in spring 2011 Celine at Coachella), so it should come as no surprise that he’s working on a collection in Paris, according to the UK’s Telegraph. West has reportedly taken up residence in Paris and will show a collection for spring 2012 in a “presentation-style format” this coming September. And since Yeezy doesn’t do anything half-assed, I’m expecting great things from him.
