Even a millionaire like Kanye West things Louis Vutton and other luxury brands are too expensive.
The rapper-designer recently told Los Angeles’ Power 106 radio station that despite his 2009 collaboration with the brand, he wouldn’t collaborate with Louis Vuitton again.
He says, “If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now, I wouldn’t. Because the prices [are] just too extreme. And I don’t want to use my message to have kids saving up that much, you know, to be part of what the ideas are. You know, that’s the problem to me with luxury.”
West even praised some of today’s fast-retailers.
“I don’t agree with everything that H&M and Zara does, but one thing that’s good is they were able to break that idea that creativity and things you want have to cost, like, a million dollars.”
The rapper recently decided to collaborate with A.P.C. –a brand that, has higher-priced items H&M, but still won’t make you go broke.
