Yeezus Tour

Hello All,

I am a lover of Stylesight.com.  I view the website and blog often for trend research, as well as street style in fashion.  So when I saw the latest post on Stylesight's blog, I had to comment on it.

The "Yeezus Tour" is a 5-day pop-up shop which is located on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, right next to his fiancée, Kim Kardashian's Boutique, DASH.  It does not surprise me that he would have his pop up shop next to Kim Kardashian so they could both reap every type of fame possible, but what does surprise me is what is inside of this pop-up shop.

The shop houses baseball hats for $35 (shocking), sweatshirts for $80, tote bags for $20, and t-shirts
with the old Metallica logo from $35-50.  Why does he have the Metallica logo? No one will ever know.  What really surprised me was the Confederate flag was the inspirational motif of this collection. He even took it s step further by hanging actual Confederate flags around the shop, with the caption, "I AIN'T COMING DOWN!" To me, this is very offensive, and quite crazy for West to have this flag as a major motif in his collection.  To every person of color, the Confederate flag shows a sign of segregation and racism.  If West actually knew his history, he would not baste his collection on this flag, but knowing Kanye, it is another publicity stunt.  If you want to view the pictures of the collection, please go to http://blog.stylesight.com/travel/los-angeles-yeezus-tour

If you actually want to travel to LA to see this collection, by all means, go ahead! The world is free.  If you do not want to travel to LA, or attend one of West's concerts, you can view his collection on the Pacsun website, www.pacsun.com.

Until Next Time
