Looks like Kanye West is covering his fashion bases! First, he worked gratis for Louis Vuitton and Raf Simons, now Kanye is going mainstream by working at Gap!
As Us Weekly initially reported Kanye has been quietly putting in the hours as an intern at the Gap offices. "He works all the time, and one Friday night recently, he stayed until 12 a.m. He's learning the fashion business from the inside and trying to do it quietly," the site stated.
Gap confirmed the story to StyleList: "Kanye's been spending time working in Gap's offices, working with Patrick Robinson, as he's interested in gaining more firsthand experience of the fashion industry."
From the sounds of our Gap source, we speculate that Kanye is probably not interning but rather working on a collaboration. (After all, we can't really see the music mogul fetching coffee and managing calendar appointments like a usual fashion intern.)
Plus, considering the cool capsule collections with last year's CFDA winners, could a Kanye/Gap one be far behind?
And at first his much-hyped Louis Vuitton sneaker collaboration was delayed until the end of the year, now we hear that it may be already sold out! (Figures.) But with the current Gap stint, maybe Kanye is learning that fashion is fickle and flying under the fashion radar is the right way to go?
