As promised: more backstage pics of the Kanye West Louis Vuitton collaboration. We’ve been sitting on these for a while now (thanks, Tan Dem!) but we had to wait until our DSM article was published before we could post them.

The honourable Don C in the background.

Kanye named one of his shoes after him (the other one’s are named Jasper after Jasper aka Ferrari Murakami and Mr. Hudson) . I put that in the article but they edited it out.

Fabrizio Vitti told KNOTORYUS :  “Working with Marc Jacobs and working with Kanye West is very similar. They both got the same drive and work ethic.”
