Kanye West is venturing into new creative outlets with a women’s clothing line.
With his Jay-Z collaboration, Watch the Throne, available in stores and online, Kanye is shifting his focus to fashion. According to Billboard.com, the Chicago rapper is prepping to launch his women’s fashion line at Paris Fashion Week on October 1.
Reportedly he’s been working on the line with Australian Harper’s Bazaar fashion editor, Christine Centenera, since last March. The line itself was designed by Louise Goldin, and it’s not clear how much creative input Kanye had.
No name for Kanye’s collection has been released yet. As fans ponder what the "Otis" rapper may send down the runway, video of his failed TV pilot has made its way to the Internet.
NecoleBitchie.com reports that Kanye had been working on a puppet show aimed at adults titled "Alligator Boots" for Comedy Central. The debut episode would have featured him and Kim Kardashian interacting with foul-mouthed puppets a la "Crank Yankers," but the format of the show would have been more smiliar to that of "The Muppet Show."
There’s no word on why "Alligator Boots," which was created with Rhymefest, never made it to air. It’s possible the show, although funny, may have been a little too raunchy even for late-night cable TV. Judge for yourself when you watch the video below.
