Kanye West has been at the forefront of fashion debate of late after his tiny Yeezy slides took center stage at 2 Chainz’s wedding. More recently, he’s dropped the LV wedding flex and emerged on Instagram in a pair of large Prada sunglasses.
Earlier this week, Kanye took to Twitter to share a picture of the frames — which sell in Prada’s women’s line — with the caption “Muccia is my god mom”. Resting atop a glass display case, the post was a ringing endorsement for Miuccia Prada’s Cinéma eyewear — a geometric modernist design with ultra-flat rimless lenses and delicately engraved Prada lettering at its temples.
And it seems Kanye didn’t leave the store empty handed, pictured wearing the frames in Chicago with a fan not long after the tweet surfaced. Posting the image to Instagram, Simon Mei captioned the picture “I don’t want to hear shit, it’s a smiling Kanye”.
Currently selling for $370, the Ye-endorsed sunglasses are available on the Prada website now. What do you think of the rapper’s latest cop, and will you be following in his footsteps? Take a closer look at the shades below, and let us know what you think in the comments.
