4:52 pm— Check this out from February.
Kanye West’s Spring 2012 fashion show.
4:51 pm— Do these necklaces say “YEEZI”??? Is THIS what we’ve been waiting for? Is this the name of the clothing line and this collection is called Dw?
4:49 pm— Oh, Kanye backstage with the moddles! All wearing matching nameplate necklaces #BFFs
4:45 pm— And the bow.
4:44 pm— A finale shot.
4:43 pm— Structured cap sleeves, beads, loose weaves, name plate.
4:41 pm— Silver pants, that fur backpack, sheer pleats, bandage dresses details.
4:40 pm— Some valiant attempts at Japanese-ish (pleats please!) structural garments like the flowerbud skirt.
4:38 pm— Grey, zippered, body con.
4:38 pm— Salmon, sculpted, zippered, knee-length dresses.
4:38 pm— The Jaws hooded coat is fantastic. Sorta reminds us of the L-R-G skeleton hoodie from eons ago.
4:35 pm— Karlie Kloss in sheer, ribbed, white, off-shoulder knits.
4:32 pm— Yeah, these shoes are important and significant.
4:31 pm— Also, not to dwell but given these striated leather pant situations (are they super-long spats? GIVE US MORE DETAIL SHOTS INTERWUBZ PLZ) is Kanye feeling bootcut breaks? #BREAKINGBREAKS
4:30 pm— A little perplexed as to the season… if this is what Kanye’s spring looks like, what about fall? #WEPREDICTMOREFUR
4:29 pm— OOOOOOH! And this shot shows Jeremy Scott AND Olivier Theyskens. LoveLoveLove.
4:27 pm— So those color blocking rumors were true. You can see the Balmain-ish influences with the uber decorative zippers. Reminds me of the jeans he favors…
4:26 pm— Chanel Iman detail.
4:24 pm— I know we’re all out of order but check out these beaded stilettos! They’re SO reminiscent of Japanese school girl slouch socks but with DYNAMITE drape…
4:23 pm— There’s a certain Costume National-ishness about it. Wonder if it’s a thick wool crepe…
4:22 pm— Here’s that cut-away dress in detail.
4:18 pm— Sleeved cape coats and a whole mess ’o embossed leather.
4:16 pm— EXTREME angular cut-out, long-sleeved dress.
4:14 pm— Great front row shot #carineroitfeld #skyferreira
4:13 pm— Leather in this detail shot looks BUTTER soft in the crook of the arm
4:11 pm— Fur backpacks, slashed dresses, ribbed leather according to @cathyhoryn.
4:10 pm— Fur stoles… leather….
4:09 pm— OH FIRST MODELS!
Terry Richardson and Lindsay Lohan.
4:08 pm— Terry Richardson, poised with camera in-hand. Lindsay Lohan. Stunner shades.
4:07 pm— GUUUuUUuUuuh everything is so slow. Kanye West has broken the internet :(
4:04 pm— Before shot of the space.
4:03 pm— And the wristband.
4:03 pm— Like, check out these signs. #GRAVITAS
4:00 pm— Whetting our appetitie with Kanye’s Creative Director Virgil Abloh’s dreamscape shots on his Tumblr/Twitter .
Kanye West’s fashion show.
3:57 pm— Oh, you can get an idea of the interior from this.
3:53 pm— I wonder if the intense light is crazy-making in there. WHAT ARE THE RAMIFICATIONS??? HOW WILL THIS PLAY WITH THE FASHUNZ?

3:50 pm— OooOoOooooh the purple light at the Kanye West Show. @Deananddan Caten with Ciara
3:46 pm— PS: It’s super helpful that between the Style Squad we can translate Tweets in six languages #nousattendons
3:45 pm— WHUT. Jared Leto’s there.
3:44 pm— So it seems… Anna Dello Russo, Olsen twins, Anna Wintour, Alexander Wang and what appears to be a GRIP of VERY HELPFUL Twitterers are at the show…
3:37 pm— Aaaaaaand… we’re late.
3:28 pm— Jeez, why are WE nervous? I guess it’s the ominous countdown clock on our synchronized iPhones/BlackBerries…
Kanye West arrives in Paris on Sept. 30.

Guys, this is IT. Kanye West is officially unveiling his debut womenswear collection at Paris Fashion Week! Thanks to a sneak peek at the invitation, we found out that his line has been dubbed “Dw,” perhaps after his late mother Donde West. The show is only MINUTES away from starting, but judging by Kanye’s super chill arrival last night (peep the above photo), we think that he’s got this collection under TOTAL control. Keep checking back here for more live blog updates throughout the night!
