Skirting Around


If she can wear the pants, why can't he wear the skirt? Last night, the 12.12.12 concert was held in Madison Square Garden in NYC to raise funds for the damages of Hurricane Sandy. Kanye West performed sporting a Givenchy leather skirt designed by Riccardo Tisci, over what seems to be leather pants, with a hoodie - sleeves scrunched and all. So why so much controversy? Rumors of the skirt being stolen from girlfriend, Kim Kardashian's closet flowed through the newsfeeds. It's not the first time we've seen a man in a skirt, take a look at previous menswear collections from Fashion Week and Marc Jacob's own collection of kilts. Leather is a major Pre-Fall trend this season. Maybe the skirt was a practical outfit for all the dancing twists, turns, and kicks on stage?
