Ashish Gupta Debuted Kimye Sweatshirt at London Fashion Week — Here's How to Wear Yours
Some celebrity appearances at fashion shows are more memorable than others. For example, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West weren't physically present at London Fashion Week, but they were still there in the form of a Kimye sweatshirt designed by Ashish Gupta.
Gupta's Spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection was full of urban glitz (picture sweatpants covered in rainbow sequins), but nothing on that runway can compare to the Kimye sweatshirt. It. Is. Brilliant. Easily the best high-fashion sweatshirt I've ever seen. The shirt is an easy light gray color emblazoned with the glittering, illustrated faces of the former Vogue cover stars. Even if you're not a Kimye fan, you'll want to get your hands on this. It's even better than the embroidered Nicki Minaj "Anaconda" polo that debuted a while back. I'm in love.
Now, you're probably thinking, "Okay, Erin, but how am I supposed to wear a sweatshirt with Kimye's heads on the boobs?" That's a pretty stupid question, if you ask me. This sweatshirt will go with everything, I promise. On the runway, Ashish paired it with a crisp white button-down, statement jewelry, boyfriend jeans with other sparkly heads on them, and feathery platform wedges. If you're less adventurous, allow me to help you out with the following suggestions.
Without further ado, here's how to wear your Ashish Gupta Kimye sweatshirt!
A leather skirt
A sleek leather mini would balance out the wonky, arts-and-crafts appeal of the Kimye sweatshirt nicely.
