We wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of Kanye West. Louis Vuitton is currently experiencing the wrath of the music mogul, and we imagine the French fashion house must be quaking in their monogrammed boots. Nawt. But what's got Kanye's Maison Martin Magiela panties in a twist this time? Apparently LV rejected his offer of a meeting in October during Paris Fashion Week. No matter that the company were in the midst of upheaval as creative director Marc Jacobs delivered his final show for the house while the big bosses were on the look out for a replacement in the form of Nicolas Ghesquière. Kanye was refused a meeting, and nobody, and we mean NOBODY says "no" to Jeezus.
Predictably, Kanye didn't take to kindly to the snub, which he claims came from the label's vice-president Yves Carcelle. During a recent interview with 92.3 NOW radio he said, "I was made for this moment. What happened was while I was out in Paris I wanted to meet with the head of Louis Vuitton, 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.' Everybody in New York City right now don't buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you want to meet with me? Now do you want to meet with me? Influence. They think that I don't realise my power."

That's right folks, Kanye has spoken, and he wants the population of an entire city to refrain from purchasing any Louis Vuitton products. We're not sure how successful his campaign will be, firstly because in our experience you can't stop people shopping, and secondly, we think that the weight of Kanye and his fiancé Kim Kardashian's Vuitton luggage collection would probably exceed the heavy load capacity of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Of course, this isn't the first time that Mr West has gone off on a fashion rant. He previously burnt bridges with designer Hedi Slimane at Saint Laurent and winged about allegedly having his 'designs knocked down' by Fendi.
Forget baby North, Kanye sounds like a man who likes to throw all his toys out the pram.
