Kanye West - Kanye West Rethinks Louis Vuitton Deal
Kanye West is adamant he would turn down the chance to design for luxury brand Louis Vuitton if asked now, because of the company's eye-watering prices.
The rapper teamed up with the fashion house, famous for its hugely expensive monogrammed luggage and purses, in 2009 to create a range of running shoes.
The collection's prices ranged from $840 (£560) to $1,140 (£760), but West admits he's now against charging the astronomical figures.
During an interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106, he says, "If I had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now I wouldn't, because the prices are just too extreme.
"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."
