Kanye West Wants to Poach Balenciaga Designer for Yeezy
But you can't always get what you want.
Keeping up with Kanye West's Twitter feed is, in itself, a full-time job.
"I'm going to steal Demna from Balenciaga," West tweeted, referring to the recently appointed Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia, who took over the reigns at the fashion house last October following Alexander Wang's departure.

Gvasalia has yet to make his Balenciaga debut, with the upcoming fall 2016 collection to be his first. Prior to Balenciaga, the designer launched design collective Vetements, where he is still currently contributing.
'Ye and the Georgian designer are reportedly tight (Gvasalia turned up at the Yeezy Season 3 extravaganza), but we're guessing if West can't convince Mark Zuckerberg to donate to his worthy cause, then he won't have much luck with Gvasalia, either.
The rapper — sorry, artist — also alluded to an in-season fashion schedule like the "see now, buy now, wear now" model that Burberry and Tom Ford have embraced with the cryptic tweet: "I just thought of the craziest idea of all ... I'm going to sell winter coats in the winter!!!"

In the meantime, however, West has promised us all free Yeezys (courtesy of Adidas, of course). So there's that.
And yes I've talked to Adidas and we gon hook y'all up with free Yeezys and Adidas. All positive vibes.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 24, 2016
