Tune in and turn up

The Failing Upwards boys are back with a fresh episode, this time joined by arguably their biggest guest to date in Just Don chief and Kanye West BFF, Don C.

For those uninitiated with the Fail Gang, each week hosts James Harris and Lawrence Schlossman are joined by a figure from the fashion world to take an irreverent look at current trends and the guest’s career so far.

As you’d expect, Don is full of interesting facts and tidbits (he apparently owns over 10,000 pairs of sneakers and doesn’t think fashion shows are cool anymore), but the real juice is when he opens up on Kanye. The pair broach the rumor that Shia LaBeouf informs Kanye’s style, which the designer says may “possibly” be true. Don then reveals that Kanye accidentally left his famous vintage army hat — a gift from Shia — in his car for the best part of six months.

Additionally, Don talks shop on his recent Don C x Wendy’s collab before confirming that he has a brand new Jordan silhouette in the works.
