Kanye West is going to have some new Virgil Abloh swag to wear just in time for spring. Though he'll probably have access to Off-White, Virgil's new label, long before then. Ugh, being famous and the longtime BFF of a very popular designer is the best. Remember how quickly he got his hands on Pyrex Vision?? Like, HOW?? JK, I know how. (Money. Status. Power.)

Off-White is—according to, who spoke with Virgil—"a streetwear-meets-fashion line that builds on, and expands upon, Pyrex Vision." While Pyrex was screen-printed on other brands' shirts, Off-White will be "a full cut-and-sew line, made in Italy." Oh you fancy, huh? The line will marry Virgil's interests in Martha Stewart (LOL) and "shabby chic" aesthetic elements with athletic sensibilities. Imagine what Martha Stewart would wear to play streetball on Nantucket and you've got Off-White. Not really, but imagining Martha in oversized hoops shorts is a fun way to pass the time.

Yeezus x Been Trill

Kanye West's Yeezus album has yet to enjoy its official release (get your plastics ready for purchase time tomorrow!), but that isn't stopping the Been Trill crew (which includes Ye's friend and style consultant Virgil Abloh) from teasing out what their captions are describing as "tour merch #yeezus x ##" (## being shorthand for the art collective often stylized "#been #trill"). Knee-jerk reaction is shock that without the album in anyone's hands, there's already talk (and maybe confirmation?) of a tour, but since we're about FASHUN here, we're going to talk about this "merch" aspect. First up, Heron Preston, late Been Trill recruit and that dude behind the bootleg Nascar factory defect shirts, posted this snap of himself wearing a black long-sleeved shirt printed with Yeezy's mug from the "New Slaves" projections across the front and "YEEZUS" in all caps with fangs down the exterior letters along both sleeves (better look here).

Kanye West, Theophilus London

This weekend, Pyrex Vision caught another major milestone for its early sophomore season. The budding line, helmed by Kanye West's style consultant Virgil Abloh, launched an exhibit at legendary Paris store Colette alongside the release of the All Gone book's 2012 edition. The event drew a select but sizable crowd including Yeezy himself and Theophilus London to the French boutique to celebrate the latest in stylish streetwear.

Kanye West Givenchy Kilt

It seems that people still can't stop talking about Kanye West's Givenchy skirt kilt from the 12-12-12 concert last week—even though he wore a super similar kilt-over-leather-pants ensemble during his Watch the Throne tour last year. Just when Yeezy decided to resurface the custom Riccardo Tisci look, a video chronicling the backstage process behind his debut kilt outfit also came to light. Somehow we missed KILLER behind-the-scenes footage of Ye and his stylist Renelou Padora trying to perfect his pleated kilt, and we're kicking ourselves for not finding it sooner. (Thanks, Complex!)

Kanye West

Along with a GRIP of other big name musicians and Hollywood heavyweights, Kanye West hit the Madison Square Garden stage last night for "12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief." Yeezy represented for hip hop with a 12-song set, starting with "Clique" and following up with one crowd-pleaser after another including "Gold Digger," "All of the Lights," and "Jesus Walks." It wasn't Ye's impenetrable commitment to performance that had everyone talking, though, so much as his performance ensemble. He wore a leather pleated Givenchy skirt over leather leggings, and while Kanye wearing a skirt, of leather or not, isn't that new of a thing for us here at MTV Style, it certainly raised some eyebrows among the 12-12-12 Concert audience.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
