Kanye West wants to make Yeezy-branded uniforms for Calabasas High School
To expand his fashion empire and strengthen his roots in Calabasas, California, Kanye West is allegedly eyeing a collaboration with the Calabasas High School athletics department. West is hoping to redesign the school’s uniforms.
The musician and fashion designer is allegedly hoping to give the high school’s sports uniforms a makeover with new colors and a new mascot, according to a report in celebrity gossip and entertainment outlet TMZ. He supposedly wants to rebrand he uniforms under his Yeezy label and change the school mascot from a coyote to a wolf. West would also donate money to the school to help it upgrade its gym facilities.
West has made the California town a significant part of recent fashion collection. In March he launched his Calabasas collection with Adidas, a line of casualwear like sweatpants and sweatshirts. Calabasas is also the longtime home of his wife’s family and the primary setting of their reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Fashion as a whole has significantly upped its interest in sports gear, with brands like Kith and Off-White launching lines of luxury sweatsuits and athletic items. Sportswear brands like Nike, Reebok and Adidas have also signed high-profile deals with popular models like Bella and Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner to represent their brands.
The high school already has a partnership with Yeezy’s parent company, Adidas. It has not made any statement with regards to the potential collaboration with West.
