West has been hitting the shows with a guy whose outfit is fascinating. It consists of many boxy layers finished off with an athletic hood and a brimmed cap on top of it. With all the angles and colors, he looks vaguely Cubist.
Yes, that would be Cubist as in the revolutionary art movement started by Pablo Picasso in the twentieth century — Kanye’s hanging with cultured crew. Though the wire services missed the Comme des Garçons shows, we did dig up the photo at left of West and a fellow who appears to match Horyn’s description of this “fascinating” friend. Could this be the Cubist wonder? Since we’re not going to win Hip-Hop Jeopardy over here anytime soon and Google only does so much, we’re unable to put a name to his face. Perhaps he’s not famous at all? Or perhaps one of you can help us identify him?
