North West Has a Paris Street Style Moment in Kanye's Vintage Jacket
Kim Kardashian and North West are attending Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, where the Skims designer, Skkn founder, and Balenciaga muse just made her debut on the couture catwalk on July 6. In the days leading up to the event — which marked the unveiling of the French fashion house's 51st couture collection at the original 1937 atelier near the Champs-Élysées — Kardashian and her 9-year-old daughter were spotted shopping and running errands. One of West's outfits, in particular, made headlines as she repurposed dad Kanye West's blue varsity Pastelle jacket that he wore onstage at the 2008 American Music Awards.
Coordinated by Kardashian's stylist Dani Levi, West wore the recognizable piece — which was a product of Ye's short-lived brand launched alongside Ian Connors, the late Virgil Abloh, Ben Baller, KAWS, and Kim Jones — with nylon pants, Balenciaga's HardCrocs (built on impressively tall platforms), a mini City bag, silver rings, a monogrammed pearl and beaded necklace, and matching blue square sunglasses.
Kardashian, meanwhile, contrasted her daughter in a fitted camouflage tee, neon green pantaleggings, oversize, rimless sunglasses, and her Balenciaga rhinestone Le Cagole X shoulder bag, which she previously styled with red, white, and blue pantaleggings in New York. West's sartorial ode to her father was a bit nostalgic, harkening back to the fashion trends of the early aughts. Back then, he paired the Pastelle coat with a camouflage baseball cap, which happened to be reminiscent of the print on Kardashian's top.
