Kanye West has set his sights on the multinational clothing retailer Gap this year, revealing that he hopes to obtain full creative control of the company.
His plans below…
In a recent interview with ‘Style.com‘, West revealed:
Perhaps this is a bit of a demo tape. When I say Steve Jobs of the Gap, as I talk to the people at the Gap right now I’m not talking about a capsule. I’m talking about full Hedi Slimane creative control of the Gap is what I would like to do.
Slimane is the current creative director of Saint Laurent Paris, and now finds himself inspiring Kanye to seek the same role at Gap, following his partnership with Nike which spawned the Nike Air Yeezy footwear collaboration.
The mogul’s announcement comes after it emerged he served as executive producer on Rihanna’s forthcoming studio album, led by the single ‘FourFiveSeconds’ on which he features.
