Kanye West in Comme des Garçons - Tao Nightclub, Las Vegas

00O00 Menswear Blog: Kanye West in Comme des Garçons brocade blazer - Tao Nightclub, Las Vegas
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian / Comme des Garçons Fall Winter 2013

Kanye West and a very va-va-voomed Kim Kardashian were pictured at the Tao Nightclub at The Venetian Las Vegas to celebrate the latter's 33rd birthday on October 26, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kanye wore a red brocade blazer from Comme des Garçons Fall Winter 2013, over a grey pullover, black trousers and black shoes. I love the red blazer, it added much needed colour between the black, white and grey outfits. It is a dressy jacket but it fitted the occasion, and the brocade nicely matches the lace dress that Kim wore. I thought Kanye looked really good in that outfit. Dressy but not losing his identity.

I previously featured Hong Kong singer Daniel Chan in a similar Comme des Garçons brocade jacket.

With the festive and holiday season coming up, the brocade jacket can be a great alternative to velvet. It is a great time of the year for textures and colours. With an eye catching investment piece blazer, wear it over a simple outfit unless you want to steal the thunder from the Christmas tree. Pocket square optional (oh go on then). You can shop the Comme des Garçons red brocade blazer online from They are currently offering free global shipping till 08:59 (GMT) on Tuesday 29 October 2013, on all products over £100.

Would you wear a coloured blazer? I look into my wardrobe and am quite disappointed with the sea of black. Let's do some shopping, here are some of my favourite blazers online, rich in colours and textures, which I would pick for the upcoming festive season:

Happy shopping


  1. well isnt the Douche and Douchess of Fame looking good?

  2. I guess nothing he wears can be as ridiculous as that woman next to him. The grey sweater with much too long sleeves is more questionable and both (i mean the jacket!) in combination is everything but cool. (Andy)


what's he wearing?
