Is there a new trend in hip-hop leaning towards wearing obscenely gaudy heavy metal-like fashion? This seems to be the case.
An anonymous tipster has sent us the above photo of Kanye West leaving a Versace store opening sporting the ugliest pair of sweatpants I have ever seen in my life.
A few months ago, Chris Brown was spotted wearing a leather jacket with patches of actual metal/crossover bands but this is way worse, these aren't even metal logos. This is metal clipart.
After doing a bit of searching, I found that this design is actually part of a collection from a British designer named Kokan Dozai. If you're going to exploit a sub-culture can you actually be tactful about it. The sweatpants cost about £239, or $325 American. Check out some of this gross designs:
Nice skirt, brah! On closer inspection, none of these patches are actual band patches, but the designer co-opted famous logos for his own desire. Eww.
The one link between Kanye's poor fashion choice and Chris Brown's, is much like Rihanna was spotted wearing Brown's tacky jacket, she was also spotted wearing these awful sweats:
Hip hop stars, WUT R U DOING?!
Hip hop stars, STAHP!!!!!
