Kanye West is down for a Ralph Lauren collaboration.
Kanye was one of the A-list guests invited to the all-American designer’s 50th anniversary show at New York Fashion Week on Friday (07Sep18), where he mingled with Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Bruce Springsteen, among others.
Asked by E! News if he’d ever team up on a fashion project with style stalwart Ralph, Yeezy designer Kanye had no hesitation in saying yes.
“Yeah. I would. The better question is would he want to do a collaboration with me,” he smiled. “I’m into it. Lets will it to fruition.”
He added: “He’s one of my idols.”
Kanye also dished that he’s been wearing Ralph Lauren since he was a youngster, revealing his first piece was “a pink polo from TJ Maxx or something like that”.
While the Gold Digger rapper was all smiles while he chatted with E! fashion correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi, the same couldn’t be said for a reporter who got on the wrong side of Kanye at the event. The 41-year-old blew up when a journalist asked him about his wife Kim Kardashian’s feud with model Tyson Beckford, and he demanded event organisers kick her out of the media area.
“She needs to get kicked out right now, or I’m leaving. Right now,” he flatly said. “She has to leave, Ralph Lauren should not have people asking questions like this.”
TMZ uploaded footage of Kanye’s rant, which also followed him as he pointed out the reporter and told her: “Ralph Lauren would be very ashamed that you asked that trash question.”
