Kanye West, you’ve done many things I’ve disagreed with in your time, but this could be the most unforgivable.
Facts out of the way first: Kanye rolled out of bed and thought it’d be a good idea to wear a $57 jacket from workwear brand Dickies, which you can buy on Amazon, to the fashion event of the year.
There's nothing that wrong with the jacket. It's nearly winter here in Oz, I need one like this for my walk to work.
But it's the Met Gala and the theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion". It's a theme that's all about liberating whimsy, embracing flamboyance and as per the term's special resonance in LGBTI history, playing a bit with gender and sexuality.
Or, as per the definition of the theme, based on Susan Sontag's 1964 essay Notes on Camp, camp is defined as "the love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration".
Hell, it's an opportunity to go extra and play with identity.
Harry Styles did it with his sheer Gucci top.
