"Pass that Ver-say-see": 7x Kanye West over mode

“Ik ben de Steve Jobs van de modewereld.” Dat zei rapper Kanye West dit jaar in een interview met The New York Times. Dat de Amerikaan er de laatste tijd alles aan doet om ook in de modewereld god te worden, is duidelijk. Maar wie wist dat Kanye al jaren rapt over fashion?
