Details On Kanye West's Clothing Line

"Nobody — not even girls — loved clothes as much as me," Kanye West recently told Flare magazine. And now his dream of being a designer is finally coming true.
Kanye West will put off touring until summer to make sure his clothing line, 'Past Tell', is absolutely perfect.
His line could go up for sale on the Internet at any moment. Any delays in launching are only because, as Tim Blanks explains in this month's Canadian Flare, Kanye is "acutely aware of his responsibility to offer only the best." As such, Kanye has — after working on the project for more than a year — only created four pieces as part of his line. They include three articles of clothing. And a belt. Blanks reports that Kanye wore these items to the shows in February and March.
So absorbed in fashion is he, Kanye cleared his schedule for an entire five months, starting in February, to work only on clothing design, including the range of sneakers he designed for Louis Vuitton. This is not, Blanks informs us, simply a case of Kanye attaching his name to a product, but a return to his childhood passion.
And one more thing: Not only does Kanye care deeply about attiring himself, the women he dates, and the world, he cares about how you see him. For do not misconstrue arrogance for his own self-belief. "I don't have the traditional false modesty a celebrity's supposed to have," Kanye explains. 
"I can't lie to anybody about the way I feel about myself; I'm too dope. I'm super-dope."
The first Pastelle Clothing store will open up early 2009 in Chicago — followed by the New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco launch. ...(it is unknown)whether the line will be syndicated in larger retail stores such as Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Nordstrom’s, or even J.C. Penny. International Stores are also currently being negotiated — no clue as to which cities will see the first stores yet.
