Kanye West Tells Fans To Boycott Louis Vuitton Until January [Photo]
E! News reports; “
Kanye West has waged another war of words against Louis Vuitton.
This time, during an interview with 92.3 Now, the rapper slammed the famous fashion house for not taking a meeting with him.
“While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said, ‘I don’t understand why we need to meet with you?’ I said, ‘Let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.'”
Yeezy added, “Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January…Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence…they think that I don’t realize my power.” Yikes.”
The article then goes on to state: “And Mr. West wasn’t alone during the interview. He brought along fiancée Kim Kardashian, who has been by her man’s side throughout the New York leg of his Yeezus tour.
This isn’t the first time that the Grammy winner has dissed the French brand.
The self-named Louis Vuitton Don said on Power 106’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood radio show last month that he doesn’t agree with the company’s price point.
Despite designing a sneaker collection for them in 2009, West said that he wouldn’t ever consider teaming up with them again.
“If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now I wouldn’t because the prices are just too extreme and I don’t want to use my message to have kids saving up that much to be a part of what the ideas are. That’s the problem to me with luxury,” he said.”
