Terrible. But I don’t even blame Alexander Wang because he’s doing exactly what he was hired to do and no one at Kering is expecting him to do any different. it’s just a shame that this has what become of Balenciaga.

Whether I’m at dinner with Anna Wintour or I’m at a listening session with Pusha or me and Virgil are in Rome giving designs to Fendi over and over and getting our designs knocked down. Brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi and they said no. How many motherfuckers you done seen with the leather jogging pant? Meaning, like, so when I see Hedi Slimane and it’s all like “okay, this is my take on the world”, yeah he got some nice $5000 jeans in there - some nice ones here and there, some good shit here and there. But we culture. Rap the new rock n roll. We culture. Rap is the new rock n roll. We the rockstars. It’s been like that for a minute, Hedi Slimane! It’s been like that for a minute. We the real rock stars and I’m the biggest of all of them. I’m the number 1 rock star on the planet!
