Kanye West - the new Marc Jacobs?

It's only fitting that Kanye West, who's oft-professed his love for Louis Vuitton, would design his own men's sneaker line for the design house. The line includes five styles, but so far only one - a red, monochromatic midtop with a quilted flap in the back - has been made public. It was revealed in the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 Men's Collection runway show in late January, apparently because it's easy to tuck pants into. "The inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie 'Dune,'" West told the New York Times blog The Moment on his design. "Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different." The shoe line will be available beginning in June at Louis Vuitton stores.
