Grainy photos of a chair showed up on Kim Kardashian's Twitter feed last night night, prompting lots of speculation about whether it's one of her famous designer/rapper husband's new chair prototypes for IKEA. One of her followers got a screen shot of the photo before it disappeared minutes later, giving us a possible first look at the highly-secretive and much-anticipated collection with the Swedish retailer.
One thing is for certain. If the photo is real, Kanye is still drawing heavily from the same inspiration for his Season 2 Yeezy collection for Adidas. Dark green knits and taupe sheer fabrics are again the palette. The chair also has the same streetwise meets militaristic look he used on the runway at New York's fashion week.
The outfit Kanye wore to a business lunch in Manhattan last week — featuring IKEA signature colors blue and yellow — certainly bolsters the rumor of their partnership.
So far, publicists for both the rapper and the retailer haven't commented on the suspected leak.
