Washington D. C. [USA], Apr. 8 : Kanye West took the hip-hop world by storm after bursting onto the scene with his 2004 debut, but soon revealed a second love: fashion and now, adding another feather to his hat, the rapper dropped his first jewellery line today.
Working in collaboration with Jacob Arabo of Jacob (and) Co., the 'Gold Digger' hit-maker created a 12-piece gilded collection that is inspired by 14th-century Florentine art.
The 39-year-old Yeezy designer told Vogue, "I wanted to create something that represented timeless love." Over the last year, his wife, Kim Kardashian West, plucked the pieces off the Yeezy Season 4 runway and styled them every which way.
Three necklaces from the collection made an appearance at last summer's MTV Video Music Awards, while four necklaces were worn during Paris Fashion Week in October.
A rep for Jacob Jewellers told E! Online that the 36-year-old reality star had duplicates of every piece, which she had made following their debut at the Yeezy Season 4 fashion show last year.
"This design by Kanye and Jacob debuted on Kim's social media and during the Yeezy Season 4 fashion show last year," the rep revealed.
