Kanye West's highly anticipated fashion line, Dw by Kanye West (named for his late mother, Donda), debuted Saturday night during Paris Fashion Week. Wall Street Journal's Christina Brinkley called the collection a collision of "Donald Trump" and "Herve Leger," an indication of its general excess. West's more-is-more approach repelled critics, who not only found the styling gauche, but its materials inappropriate for the season. As The New York Times' Eric Wilson noted, "Though designers in Paris are presenting collections for next spring and summer this week, Mr. West’s collection was heavy on leather, fur and coats, some pieces dripping with so much fox you couldn’t tell if they were stoles or backpacks."
