Kanye West Designs Shoes For London Fashion Week
We haven’t heard much from Kanye West since his January twitter fiasco where he unleashed a bizarre fury of nonsense in 140 characters or less, but it seems that Kanye has made his way back into the fashion world, designing shoes for Aussie label Dion Lee.

The shoes debuted during London Fashion Week and even though Kanye’s own Womens Wear line from his Spring/Summer 2012 offering was met with very mixed reviews, thoughts on his shoe collection for Dion Lee are surprisingly good.

Dion and Kanye have apparently been friends for a while but many were surprised when Kanye’s name popped up in the credits as the creator of the footwear for the designer’s first ever London presentation.

Few pictures from the show have surfaced online but it seemed like Kanye ditched the futuristic, fur obsessed, chunky white messes he created for his own SS 2012 collection and debuted delicate black pointed heels inspired by a kind of lace up ballet shoe.

They were very tasteful, and most of the fashion world is ready to give Kanye a second chance. This is perfect timing, as Kanye is set to debut his second ready-to-wear clothing collection at Paris fashion week next week.

His work in footwear has many crossing their fingers that he can parlay that success into his second women’s wear collection. Here’s to hoping second times the charm!
