Kanye West garnered a lot of attention and criticism last year, especially for his remarks that were racially insensitive and anti-Semitic. As a result, many renowned brands like TJ MAXX, Adidas, and Balenciaga cut their ties with him. However, Ye was recently spotted shopping with his new wife Bianca Censori at a Balenciaga store, which is quite surprising.
The couple went out shopping at Balenciaga, the company, which got into trouble in December after releasing a contentious ad campaign that featured young children holding teddy bears while wearing outfits inspired by BDSM, as well as a second series of advertisements that featured court documents relating to child pornography laws. Following the backlash, both the company and its creative director, Demna, expressed their regret.
West had a strong connection with Balenciaga before the luxury brand severed ties with him last October due to the rapper’s offensive anti-Semitic remarks. West debuted on the runway at Balenciaga during Paris Fashion Week just days before the clothing company ended their collaboration.
The “Runaway” rapper didn’t appear to mind, though, as he was spotted looking through the store’s footwear selections with Censori, the Australian Yeezy designers he allegedly married in a private ceremony earlier this month.
West is known for treating his ladies to shopping sprees. In early 2022, he gave ex Julia Fox a $100,000 Diesel dress-up date and a whopping five Birkin bags, and a few months later, he gave fling Chaney Jones a $275,000 Hermès bag.
