Kanye West Asks Fans Not To Purchase Any Louis Vuitton Product Until January

American rapper Kanye West is widely known to be a huge fan of fashion.

The 36 year-old has admitted several times that the world of fashion ignores his designs and ideas for one reason or another.

Now the 'Black Skinhead' rapper is out to get revenge.

West is entering a feud with popular fashion house Louis Vuitton, after he asked his fans to boycott their products until after January.

In a recent interview with 92.3 Now in New York (Nov 25th), Kanye said, "While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said, 'I don't understand why we need to meet with you?' I said, 'Let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.'"

Yeezy added, "Everybody in New York City right now, don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January.Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence.they think that I don't realize my power."

Joining West in the radio interview was his future wife, Kim Kardashian, she has been supporting her fiancé during his New York leg of the 'Yeezus' tour.

Louis Vuitton is known for its expensive product and even though Kanye designed a sneaker for them 4 years ago in 2009, the 'Bound 2' rapper told Power 106's 'Big Boy's Neighborhood' that he would not partner with them again due to their pricey nature.

"If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now I wouldn't because the prices are just too extreme and I don't want to use my message to have kids saving up that much to be a part of what the ideas are. That's the problem to me with luxury," he said.
