Kanye West is resurrecting his once closeted brand Pastelle, and has given control to the “king of the youth” Ian Connor. The line came to be around 2008, but it never actually dropped being discontinued in 2009.
As of late, Connor has been teasing fans on social media by making videos of himself scrolling through past Pastelle designs. From this we gather that Ian will use these past designs as inspiration, and incorporate in his creations bright colors and graphics. However, streetwear today is a far cry from what it was in 2008, and it will be interesting to see how the past will be infused into the present.
This line can either fly high or fall hard, but there’s nobody better prepared to take on the challenge than Connor (pictured to the left), who has been incredibly influential in the fashion industry for a number of years now working with Wiz, A$AP Rocky and Kanye West. The line is set to drop next Saturday, May 14, so sit tight for the week and get ready to splurge on Kanye and Connor’s latest creations.
