Manolos, Louboutins, Kanyes...
Is Kanye West working on a pair of the next "It" shoe? It looks like the mens footware market might be getting its own Manolo. The rapper continues his expansion into the fashion world (watch out Diddy!) and Louis Vuitton continues to pump up its own "It" factor, so it's a win win collaboration for both, although a bit obvious.
Kanye has never hidden his love for the LV monogram and often photographed endorsing the label, a strategy that seems to work for lots of celebs these days. This one might be different in a sense that it does spark consumer's curiosity and considering previous Louis Vuitton collaborations might turn into a trend setting line.
Expect the first sneak peek in Fall 08.
