EDITOR’S NOTE: Kanye West for Interview Magazine

A little while ago I was on Tumblr. In case you didn’t know, it’s my third home. I came across a brief picture post on Interview Magazine’s feature on Kanye West.

Interview Magazine is iconic publication in the industry. With a gritty, jealousy-infusing history, it’s one of those magazines that can do as it pleases because it’s been around the block a few times and it actually knows what it’s doing. Having covered amazing personalities such as Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, The Beatles, Tom Ford, Jack White, just to mention a few; the magazine is an authority of sorts and one tends to listen in on the commentary with much interest.

It’s Kanye West. Whether you hate or love him, you’re likely to stop for a little moment to catch up on ‘what did he do now’ so you’re just ‘aware’. From a fashion loving perspective, Kanye is fantastic. I don’t always think he gets it right, however, he always pushes the boundaries and that is what’s exciting about him in fashion.

So anyway, back to this Interview moment. I saw parts of the spread and I wasn’t too sure if I was impressed or a little troubled that it seemed to have him depicted as a man on fire – which is partially true in a figurative manner – but I got a much more deep seeded and narcissistic notion from it all. If anyone is in possession of the full interview and spread, please share. I would definitely like to read it and see the full visual expression. Kanye being such a ‘visual’ artist, it will be delightful to see how another entity has visually showcased him in full.
