He’s far more known for his outspokenness when it comes to celebrity news and gossip, but Kanye West has a soft spot in his heart for the world of fashion. In New York recently, he was given the Stylemaker Award at the 14th annual ACE Awards, and his acceptance speech for once didn’t anger anyone. He thanked Marc Jacobs for giving him the job of designing a line of sneakers for Louis Vuitton and said he was heartbroken once the job was finished.
The shoes came in three styles and ranged in price from $840 to $1150. He did, however, say that he loved the design process and seeing the finished product was a high, saying, “When it was ready it was like the dream of putting together the fabric and having the energy that I knew of being a street kid.”
