Kanye West encourages Louis Vuitton boycott in New York
Kanye West could find himself on Louis Vuitton's naughty list this Christmas, after the Yeezus rapper has told his fans to stop buying the brand.
Looking to put a dent in the French label’s festive sales, Kim Kardashian’s husband-to-be made the bold request during a radio tour in New York yesterday.
In a new interview with 92.3 Now, Kanye explained his grief with Marc Jacobs’ former fashion house.
‘While I was in Paris I wanted to meet the head of Louis Vuitton and he said ‘I don’t understand why we need to meet with you?’
‘I said let me explain to you why you need to meet with me…’ he said, before declaring: ‘Everybody in New York City right now, don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January.
‘Now do you wanna meet with me? Influence… they think that I don’t realise my power.’
With the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star accompanying him on the Big Apple promo tour, the couple looked loved-up as they left little North West for the day.
Louis Vuitton have yet to comment on Kanye’s radio request…
