The world rushed to see Kanye’s debut of his second fashion line in Paris last week… Unfortunately, the judges still weren’t impressed, but we have a few tips to offer the man. Ye needs to stick to what he knows best–menswear, duh–and he needs to hire our boy DeVonn Francis stat. We ran into DeVonn, a student at Cooper Union last week and were instantly captivated. The visual artist from Virginia channeled Yeezy’s signature streetstyle swag meets classic menswear look. But we think, dare we say it, DeVonn looked even better than the rapper-turned-designer! Donning an almost-all-black-everything wardrobe and killer shoes from the UK, DeVonn kept things interesting up top with a pop of mustard and a snazzy little bow-tie he picked up on Canal Street. Leather jacket + bow-tie? Looks like DeVonn’s giving Kanye a run for his money…perhaps Mr. West should just stick to rhymes.
