Kanye West just can’t leave Balenciaga – even though the brand dumped him for his anti-Semitism, he took his new wife for retail therapy there… but their journey also included a subtle reminder of the Nazi Germany.
Yes and Bianca Censori See you Wednesday night at the upscale Bev Hills clothing store on Rodeo Drive, loading several bags full of merchandise. It is not a billionaire anymore, but the party is a reminder that he is still VERY rich.
We’re told the pair also hung out at a nearby Neiman Marcus … but it’s unclear whether KW and BC left that store with sweet sons.
BTW, Kanye appeared to be wearing a t-shirt with the German Reich coat of arms…used before the Nazis adopted the swastika. There is also the word “Bundeswehr” written above – the name of the Federal Defense Forces in Germany.
That aside, it’s still kind of weird that Kanye is shelling out a lot of money in the same place as cut ties with him in October…while the brand didn’t go into specifics, you’ll recall the companies were dropping it left and right when he continued several anti-Semitic rants.
You have to understand they charge retail now.
As you know, Kanye and Balenciaga have quite a history — even opening for the company’s Paris Fashion Week show a few weeks before it was canned.
FYI – Balenciaga had its own post-Ye… scandal in November for a Photo shoot where children were holding BDSM-themed teddy bears, and another with what appeared to be legal documents related to a child pornography case buried on a table.
You could say that the former partners are comrades in controversy.
