    OK, I like what everyone in this picture is wearing except for Mr. West. I think the girls are very now in their outfits, which means a couple of years from now they will see this pic and may go “What was I thinking”? Love the jersey-like “cashmere mechanic overalls?” on the lady on the left- she has a strong body line to carry it off very stylishly. Also notice the motorcycle boots on the lady on the right, the perfect conclusion to a more traditional outfit with an overcoat. The guy on the left: classic, perfect. Jorge from West Palm Beach

    p.s. I think Mr. West might appreciate it if his name were spelled correctly in the title…from “Kayne” to “Kanye”

    Wow! Is this a candid shot?

    Looks like it was a shoot for a magazine editorial. The light hitting on their faces, the clothes so clear and their clothes, oh so chic!!

    You certainly know the right moments. Best Composition of a group of people in a candid shot I ever saw.

    Donovan, the woman next to him with the yellow and orange necklaces is his fiance. As for the rest, I have no idea.

    I am not a fan of Kanye by any means, in fact his arrogant attitude really rubs me the wrong way. But I like this shot. More photographically speaking than because of the fashion.

    ridiculously tired of Kanye West and his inflated sense of self.

    i will admit he wears some nice pieces, but there are so many people i see in this blog and elsewhere, who are far more innovative and creative. and don’t think they are Karl Lagerfeld’s heir apparent just becaus e they can rattle off fashion houses and afford Japanese sneakers no one has heard of.

    Kanye West wear his clothes very well. Which designer he wears is never the focus, but he simply wears his clothes so well. Everyone in this photograph, including his fiancee, looks sharp and confident. I wish I could pull of their confidence with every outfit I wear.

    they look very cool walking together. i notice the guy in the foreground is carrying a piece of paper that says “chloe”. i think they’re heading to a model shoot?
    i think the bright beads are interesting w. the tweed. i’d never try it but she can pull it off. she can probably pull just about anything off, though – she’s gorgeous.
    not crazy about kanye’s jacket. it’a little “miami” but to each his own.

    Love the color and the painter-y print on his jacket, and the colors of his fiancee’s necklaces. Both nice pops in otherwise neutral outfits. Does anyone remember her (his fiancee’s) name? She’s a fashion designer, no?

    kanye might not be making any major statements, but that jacket is hot. and his lady’s outfit is fabulous — who cares if it’s “now” — the contrast of the rave-colored beads with the rather chic one-piece is very nice.

    three straight celebrity postings? i mean, don’t get me wrong — the pictures are great and it all looks quite good stylistically (both the framing and clothing); but honestly, it’s one thing to have celebrities (or insiders) interspersed and another to have them be the focus (whether wittingly or unwittingly).

    Kanye is a style icon, perhaps not necessarily for the readers of this blog, but he has made his mark on pop culture and fashion. A designer (can’t remember which one) said in Details that Kanye wears all designers, but it never seems as if clothes are wearing him. I might add that he stays on top of general trends, but still maintains looking “hip hop”. What kind of sneakers did he have?

    I love the neon necklaces with the neutrals. What a perfect color combination.

    And likely Alexis and Kanye got dressed together–I think his jacket and her necklaces play nicely off each other (neutrals plus one tropical bright each.)

    and i think he addresses the issue of his attitude and growth very well through his lyrics.

    I am not a hip-hop fan but i think Kanye has moved past that genre and into a universe of true self-expression

    go go Kanye

    Dear Plum,

    Know what you’re talking about before you spew hate. Kanye is not one of those “hip-hop artists that [sic] perpetuate violence and negativity.” His lyrics (from the song Family Business): “I woke up this morning with a new state of mind/ A creative way to rhyme without using knives and guns/ Keep your nose out the sky, keep your heart to God/ And keep your face to the rising sun.”

    As to all you other Kanye haters, you don’t have to like his music or his sense of style, but you have to admit that they are unique, and that his honesty, about everything from his post-Katrina feelings to the effects of fame, is what has caused him the most problems. It’s a sad day when a man who speaks his mind and tries to effect positive change in out society is denigrated for it.

    And Sart, great shot. I think it’s important and helpful to shoot influential people such as Kanye. Don’t listen to these nay-sayers, the blog is awesome.

    I’m out.

    I have to say that i appreciate West’s effort to dress in a certain way, but it always comes off as forced, affected and antiquated. It looks very 80′s with no trace of 2008 or a trace of personality.
    It almost looks like a costume.

  53. Anonymous

    Mr West is completely non violent in his music; most of his songs are about achieving his goals and relationships. He’s very much a self made man.

    If you’ve ever even listened to Kanye West’s lyrics you’d know that he absolutely doesn’t perpetuate violence. And as far as I’m concerned, the only one here perpetuating negativity is you. Enough with the stereotyping of hiphoppers and young black men in general. This is a forum to discuss fashion… Not vent your racist prejudices.

    Thank you Sat for your comment. 10points!

    Its unfortunate that our society is plagued with the idea of celebrities and their sagas. Kanye is an ARTIST in every sense and is a well dressed straight-talking artist. A genius with words and speaking truth in a way that some of us are not quite comfortable with. It is unfortunate that his confidence is taken as arrogance. If only some people knew what others have had to go through to get somewhere and to be recognised for their skill then they would see confidence.

    His lady’s necklaces drew my eyes and made everything else look brighter. Love the texture of the jumpsuit and her nails.

    If this weren’t Kanye and Alexis – “celebrities”, so to speak – I hope this shot would still be on this blog because of the color and the confidence of their looks. The neon accent pieces with the muted colors are SO fresh and inspirational. Kanye’s layering is chic and sporty.

    I know that the nature of a blog like this is to elicit judgment, but sometimes the judgment is too little about content. I’m glad you finally responded, Sart.

Great pairing of the orange and yellow beads to bring chic and personality of the jumpsuit, the yellow beads also picking up the colour of the other guy’s yellow scarf. Great assemble photo.

    It’s actually so good that makes Kanye’s outfit look more interesting than what actually is. I love that shade of blue, and it looks great with dark skin.

I think that if you would take the time to hear how much it took for him to get where he is today, and how many people stabbed him in the back, you’d appreciate the attitude that he has. He’s also a fashion icon who does whatever he wants when it comes to clothes. Isn’t that something to strive for?

Lately, I’m finding the Sartorialist nearly exclusively featuring men and women who are natural ectomorphs.

    When it comes to music Kanye West has brought a trully postmodern approach to pop: fusing past present and future. He has a very personal flare manipulating textural melodies that make him a master in his craft. I do believe his the one of the limited handful of hip hop artist that will transcend to other genres and influence many other musicians. In my opinion he is the one that makes bridges across languages and even cultures: that makes him a SUPERB artist.
    Aside his style is a very light approach to street fashion: sophisticated and elegant yet totally fun and fresh. His style is confident without threatening anybody: he does not need to. The man Is a league of his own.

    alexis is gorgeous. i think both of their ensembles are about texture and color to me. i love her neutral, textured jumpsuit with the bright, smooth plastic necklaces. he does the same with his neutral everything but the bright blue jacket (i wish i could see the whole thing) with it’s funky texture. very nice.

  87. Lee

    March 29, 2008 at 3:17 pm

    To me Kanye epitomizes hip hop style done right. Hip Hop fashion is often exaggerated(think gold teeth, massive bling), and always perpendicular to traditional Preppy American Style,
    His stuff is still eye catching but he knows how to make it work. Look at the Shutter shades he had in “Stronger”.

    If you’re into hip hop and that counterculture vibe, you’ll dig it. If you ain’t, you may or you may not, but it’ll certainly make you look and think.

    Everything works great for me: the angle of the shot, the clothes, even Kayne’s jacket. But c’mon, those beads are ridiculous! They remind me of the sort of plastic jewelry I used to play with in grade school. A detriment to the image as a whole.

    kanye’s blue jacket is gorgeous, not so into the miami “look” of it.

    the guy’s scarf is a great shade of yellow, but not the best color for him, makes him look kind of sickly. alexis should have worn it instead of those beads.

    Too bad I can’t see the shoes of Mr West and the girl in grey.

    I’d love to have his jacket!!

    Nice picture.

    This is the first photograph in a long while that leaves me completely indifferent.

    If it weren’t Kanye West, what would reward attention?

    The jacket? Granted, it’s a cut above the cast-offs at T.J. Maxx. Has he done anything inspired to complement it with his pants, or eyewear? Not that I can see.

    Perhaps the scarf and the beads. Fine. It saves their outfits from being unremarkable.

    I’m sure the clothes are all very expensive, but there’s just not enough “there” there.

    I checked out all of Kanye’s lyrics online. Nothing there but love and respect. No negativity or violence apparent when he says “Get your mother effing hands up” in “Get em high”. Great use of vocabulary. I admire his name dropping of fashion designers. Our kids really need more like him. I can see why he deserves to be such a role model.

    The neon necklaces look like the cheap-o plastic necklaces wildly popular, and sold on the streets of Buenos Aires over a year ago…

    And who wears khakis in Paris?? What is the pattern on his jacket? The teal/blue color is nice, but I can’t tell if it’s abstract, or some funky “seascape” design.

    I agree the yellow scarf is nice.

    This photo probably wouldn’t have been taken if it was someone else…

    I have to agree with Anonymous above who starts, “Just one more opinion to add to the fire… ”

    Celebs or regular people, Sart always has an interesting point of view. And I have to say my sense of what style can mean and my sense of building a personal style is enriched by Sart’s work. There is no one else I know of who is doing this sort of thing with the passion, flair and idiosyncratic view that Sart brings to the table.

    Keep it coming, Sart — celebs, non-celebs, et al. And thank you, Sart!

    Forget about the critical comments re: your photographs of (quasi-)celebrities. Your blog is read all over the world. For every reader who knows who “Kanye” (or, Irina L., Camille Miceli, etc.) is, there is one who doesn’t know. I don’t. And, frankly, don’t care.

    Thanks for the shots and ideas.

    Sart, I always enjoy the photos where we see people moving, walking, in action because they show that you can make an action shot look just as fabulous as those where your subject is standing still for you.
    I also love the mix of tropical colors after so many drab black, grey, brown winter clothes. It is snowing where I live, but I can fantasize about when my white pants won’t get splashed with winter mud any more.

    This blog is genious. I don’t care if Sart posts photos of celebs, rich people, poor people, models or mere mortals, because for me the photos capture the spirit of the subjects and celebrate style and beauty.
    Just keep posting Sart, I love that anyone with access to the internet can enjoy your art.//////

    Sart, you are so talented! Please do not reduce yourself to taking celeb paparazzi type pics. Kanye typically has nice pieces of clothing, but a jacket and what looks like khakis, plz? This seems like nothing more than the usual pandering to to the rich just because they are rich. What’s next, Paris Hilton in Paris? Keep it real man, you’re too good for this! love you Sart!

    I read most of his lyrics online. There wasn’t one song that wasn’t “agressive” – let’s put it that way.

    Even the songs in which he’s being “nice” just seem to making exuses for himself.

    EDUCATE yourselves, people, there are more choices out there in the world than you know.

    Kanye’s girly is so perfectly hip and elegant. I love how she mixes the grey, with the neon necklaces. So contemp. No wonder she is K’s stylist and lover. They are so storybook!

    Thank you for this flick. It is inspiring.
