Kanye West has been earning some serious fashion cred with his successful Yeezy collections, but it looks like he isn't going to stop at producing coveted clothes and shoes. In fact, he's venturing into a new business: he's set to drop his first ever jewelry line this April!
He teamed up with Jacob Arabo, a coveted jeweler of '90s hip hop. Jacob has worked with other artists like LL Cool J, Jay-Z, and The Notorious B.I.G., which earned him the name "Jacob the Jeweler." For Kanye's 12-piece collection, he tells Vogue, “I wanted to create something that represents timeless love,” leading him to create pieces that were inspired by 14th Century Florentine art. It features opulent gold medallions embossed with bas-relief portraits of Donatello hanging from 18k yellow gold chains.
And with some careful sleuthing, we found out that Kanye has been sneakily promoting his new bling through is wife and muse, Kim Kardashian-West. She debuted the jewels last August at the MTV VMAs, which she wore with a John Galliano sheer dress. Mrs. West wore them again last October with a Givenchy robe dress at the Paris Fashion Week just before her traumatic robbery.
The collection retails from $3140 to $13,360 or about P155, 885 to P663,257. And yup, you can definitely place an order online!
