Fab or Fail: Kanye West’s Watch the Throne Kilt

Fab or Fail: Kanye West’s Watch the Throne Kilt

What do you think of Ye’s latest style risk?

Published November 7, 2011

By now, there aren't many things that would surprise us with Kanye’s style picks, but he’s still causing a stir with his Watch the Throne wardrobe.

The fashion forward rapper aimed for new risk-taking heights (or lows, depending on how you want to look at it), and wore a leather kilt, leather skinny pants, graphic tee and jacket during the first few legs of the concert. Jay on the other hand has been keeping it classic in all black and his signature Yankee fitted. The thigh-length, black leather skirt is from the Givenchy's Spring Summer 2012 men's collection.

Kanye’s not afraid to cross the clothing lines — earlier this year he wore a women’s Celine blouse on stage at the Coachella music festival — but it seems like he’s giving a nod to a Pharaoh's style of dress with the look, especially considering the regal theme of the album and tour title. It’s definitely an outfit that has people watching.

What do you think of the look? Sound off!
