kanye's baby

the stork indeed delivers… via secret messenger service. jim shi (pictured below) welcomes his newly adopted bundle, fendi’s 400 percent bearbrick luca that’s entertained and wowed many passersby at the nyc flagship.

dually announced by the chic report, kanye west is now the adoptive father of luca’s elder brother whom is le couleur pour saison, jaune.luca, jim shi's bundle of joy

these bearbricks were conceived by parents karl lagerfeld & silvia venturini fendi, and are beyond retardo. its like a life-size lego for fashion savvy adults. coveting? yes!

awaiting my stork delivery,


so its purported by the new york post that jay-z shot editorials with lagerfeldt for the new fendi advertisement campaign as the new face for the luxury brand back in march. whew! & not that good whew as fendi now presents… a hard face. i’ve been a hov fan since those reasonable doubt days, but this hustle from the brand’s aspect is mere foolery.

fendi, a luxury house formerly synonymous with stuffily, aged, white anglo-saxon, protestants has been trending toward a more youthful consumer since the ingenious kaiser was relegated the reigns as creative director. i understand using jay’s appeal to reach the urban demos, but at the risk of alienating old money, now that’s ludicrous.

i admit that fendi’s accessories division pops like rocks & this assertion has no relevance. so as i dish kudos to a white-haired, specs clad, visionary genius, this idea is like jay-z as the face of white diamonds. such the oxymoron… like a collegiate thug. just a thought.
what do you think?
