TYLER THE CREATOR IS PRETTY AWESOME.
On probably my third or fourth time to LA, I remember Tyler the Creator and some of his weirdo clique standing behind me in line at Roscoes waiting to pay. We made eye contact for a second and then I turned back around waiting for my bill. I didn't have much of an opinion of him, wasn't that much of a fan of his music, outside of a few singles. I was neutral, I just thought he was a young leader of mischief.
Now some years later, something prompted me to click on a live stream link to his GOLF fashion show. I was immediately blown away at the opening, the natural chill vibe of all the models, the skits, and his custom designed, oversized Coca Cola inspired chairs ("big enough so two people can fit in it on some romantic shit.") I. want. one. And to top it all off, the guy also gave away a free pair of shoes from his Golf Le Fleur line to every guest in attendance.
So in 2016, I realized Tyler is a super ill designer and I'm kinda excited to see what else he has up his sleeve.
On another note, Tyler created this fly collection of clothes and shoes, seemingly unaffiliated or under any other major brand and I can't help but wonder why this was so difficult for Kanye? (no shade, real question) What did he do that Kanye couldn't, or differently?
