Kanye West's debut collection didn't go down well last season but his fall collection was definitely a step in the right direction. The show was refined - featuring only 20 looks - and centred around black leather on simple silhouettes and it worked. More so than least season, the collection featured pieces that real women would actually want to wear rather than something you would see in a music video, which was the feeling last season.
It was clear that West had learned from his mistakes. While he wasn't happy about the criticisms, you could see that he had sat back and taken them on board and used them to help take his design aesthetic forward. As you would expect, there were sexy pieces like one look that saw the model come down the runway in a skin tight pair of leather trousers and cropped jacket with what looked like a whip, but equally he showed loose fitted sequin tops with simple trousers and great coats that will be more retail friendly. Hopefully this is the start of good things to come.
