Kanye West is a trendsetter. Regardless of whether or not you truly feel that way, it’s true. Since he was sporting pink polos and Louis Vuitton backpacks although rapping by means of a wired-shut jaw, the man has constantly seemed 3 measures ahead of the fashion scene. He’s sported leather pants just before they popped off, and oversized coats just before they became trend’s favored point. Plus he designed what are arguably the most coveted sneakers on the planet.
And these days, we’re deep in West’s tie dye minute. Yes, tie dye. The swirly, streaky patterns you probably last encountered although making a T-shirt at summertime camp or, if you’re a Dead Head, the final time you did laundry. But ‘Ye is all in on the pattern that’s popping up in paparazzi snaps and on the runways of big trend brands (Valentino, Saint Laurent). And the rapper doubled down on the search in the video for Schoolboy Q’s latest single, “That Element.” In the clip he’s sporting not one, but two diverse kinds of tie dye, even though the two are in a blue/white scheme simply the inverse of every single other (white tee/blue dye, blue jeans/white dye). Additionally, his jeans are of the ripped selection, though we’d like to note that in contrast to other pairs he’s sported just lately, this particular version boasts an acceptable amount of rips.
