Keeping up with Kanye: rapper and designer to launch beauty line
1. Kanye West is set to become a beauty mogul. It’s been revealed that he’s planning expand his Yeezy line to include a range of wellness and lifestyle products.
2. The rapper and fashion designer has filed a trademarkfor Yeezy Beauty and its products will include makeup, fake eyelashes, face masks, nail polishes, moisturisers, body oils, bath gels, shaving creams, haircare products, perfume, toothpaste, deodorant, scented pinecones and aromatherapy pillows, reports TMZ. In 2017 West filed a trademark for Donda beauty, named after his mother, which never reached fruition.
据TMZ报道，这位说唱歌手兼时尚设计师已经为Yeezy Beauty申请了商标，其产品将包括化妆品、假睫毛、面膜、指甲油、润肤霜、身体油、沐浴啫喱、剃须膏、护发产品、香水、牙膏、除臭剂、芳香松果和香薰枕头。2017年，韦斯特用他母亲的名字为Donda beauty申请了一个商标，但是没能成功。
3. The beauty market, which is expected to be worth $805bn (£721bn) by 2023, has been lucrativefor members of his family. KKW, the beauty line belonging to West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, reportedly made $100m (£65m) last year, according to Forbes. While in November West’s sister-in-law Kylie Jenner sold a share of her cosmetics brand Kylie Cosmetics to Cover Girl-owner Coty for $1.2bn (£948bn).
到2023年，美容市场市值预计将达到8050亿美元(7210亿英镑)，这对韦斯特家族来说是很有利的。据《福布斯》报道，韦斯特的妻子金·卡戴珊的美容品牌KKW去年赚了1亿美元(6500万英镑)。去年11月，韦斯特的小姨子凯莉·詹纳(Kylie Jenner)以12亿美元(合9480亿英镑)的价格将自己的化妆品品牌Kylie cosmetics部分股份卖给了Cover Girl的所有者Coty公司 。
4. The influence of West’s Yeezy fashion label has been broad. In March he told the Wall Street Journal magazine that he believed Yeezy was “the McDonalds and the Apple of apparel”, and the popularity of the Boost 350 sneakers has led it to be, as of early 2019, the most searched for streetwearbrands on the luxury resalesite The Real Real. The look of Yeezy’s earth-toned body con, has also influenced the look of Kardashian’s SKIMS range.
韦斯特的Yeezy时尚品牌影响广泛。3月，他在《华尔街日报》杂志采访中称, Boost 350球鞋会使得Yeezy成为服装界的麦当劳和苹果，截至2019年初，奢侈品转售公司The Real Real销售最好的街头风品牌是Boost 350。Yeezy大地色调的紧身质感也影响了卡戴珊的SKIMS系列。
5. West’s last collection, Yeezy Season 8, showed at Paris Fashion Week in March this year and featured Hazmat suit-inspired looks that were influenced by his Sunday Service Choir musical venture. In the past West has collaborated with Nike, Louis Vuitton and APC, as well as his high-profileYeezy collaboration with Adidas.
韦斯特的上一个系列Yeezy Season 8，受他的Sunday Service Choir影响，灵感来自生化防护服的时装也于今年三月在巴黎时装周展出。过去，韦斯特曾与耐克(Nike)、路易威登(Louis Vuitton)和APC合作，他也曾高调与阿迪达斯(Adidas)合作过。
6. In April Forbes announced that West was officially a billionaire with earnings of $1.3bn (£1.04bn). His assets include a stake in the Yeezy trainer line, which Forbes described as “one of the great retail stories of the century”, plus $81m (£64.7m) in property and $21m (£16.8m) in land. His back catalogueand his record label GOOD Music are estimated to be worth around $90m (£71.8m). However, the magazine also said his debts were around £100m (£80m).
7. West has become a controversial figure in recent years, with his outspokensupport for President Trump.
