It’s been over a year since we spotted Kanye West sporting his infamous leopard print Givenchy bomber jacket, but it looks like he decided to dust it off for one last hurrah yesterday while visiting BET’s 106 & Park studio. He wore the statement jacket over a black hoodie, loose black tee, relaxed black jeans, and (of course) his Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneakers. Last year, he went for a lighter look while heading to the Christian Dior A/W 2011 show during Paris Fashion Week. He wore a heather gray tee with paint-splattered jeans and black velvet slippers. He glammed up his look with a gold medallion chain, stacked bracelets and slick shades. But is anyone else thinking what we’re thinking: Kanye West repeats outfits?!
To be honest, we’re kind of in shock that ’Ye wore the same jacket twice—especially a statement piece like this one. I mean, we imagine his closet as one of those rotating rack things you see at the dry cleaners where it just keeps bringing you endless amounts of clothes for years and years to come. Plus, he has his own fashion line so you’d think, I don’t know, maybe he just makes stuff when he runs out of options? We’re scratching our heads wondering if he’s more normie than we all assumed, but, either way, we have to say we like his latest look better then his first rendez-vous in the leopard number. The overall ensemble is so much sleeker, and we can’t deny any outfit that involves THE Yeezy sneaks, but what do you think? Did Kanye commit a fashion faux pas by sporting the same jacket twice or is he just getting normal wear out of his wardrobe?
