Kanye West Glow in the Dark | A Detailed Look

highsnobiety - Kanye West Glow in the Dark | A Detailed Look

As we’ve previously reported, Kanye West Glow in the Dark captures on-stage and behind-the-scenes action from Kanye’s “Glow in the Dark” tour. From Bonnaroo to Beijing (and many stops before and in between) the global voyage comes to life through the captivating photography of Nabil Elderkin. Kanye’s conceptual sketches help contextualized the finished staging, and provide a welcome complement to the action footage. Most compelling, however, are the shots of Kanye backstage both alone and with fellow performers.

The book begins with a conversation between Mr. West and Spike Jonze. Their chat covers Kanye’s reasoning for documenting the tour and delves into family and politics as well. From there, the images play out chronologically through the tour dates. Towards the end, press and listening parties for 808’s and Heartbreak fold into the story. With little text, Kanye West Glow in the Dark, is primarily about visual spectacle. The accompanying cd includes live instrumentals, which work to help flesh out the feel of the stage performance. Richer than the studio recordings, these tracks are a welcome addition.

For those of us who were unable to catch the tour, the book serves well. Until, of course, a tour video comes…

The book is published by Rizzoli and available to order through Colette.

Pastelle Never Coming Out

UPDATE: Earlier today we posted some images from the long-rumored Pastelle by Kanye West collection. Although pieces have been seen worn by Kanye West during several public appearances (such as the 2008 AMA Awards), Pastelle will never be released. That’s right. We’ve received official word that Pastelle will not be coming out. Ever. That said, Kanye West will release a collection under his own name in the near future. Stay tuned.

However, as a Doernbecher auction, Mark Smtih and his team withing the Nike’s Innovation Kitchen, has fused both models to form this one-of-a-kind sneaker. This unique shoe is available on eBay in a size 12.

This sneaker simply owns the Nike Air Yeezy base combined with the Air Jordan VI sole. The upper also features multiple textures on the upper including leather, suede and patent leather (strap). This pairing raises a lot of questions. Does the Air Yeezy look better with the Air Jordan VI sole or do you prefer the original way it looks? Should Nike start fusing more classic sneakers together? As stated earlier, you can place your bid on eBay now

Run This Town – Jay-Z Ft. Kanye West & Rihanna

Run This Town – Jay-Z Ft. Kanye West & Rihanna***** 5/5

So Jay-Z was supposed to put out a single with Drake, and I was pretty excited. Then I was slightly disappointed to find out that single had been scratched, and that this had been replaced. Damn was I wrong. This music speaks for itself. Brilliant.
