The Kardashians have been the leaders of the #BalmainArmy for some time now. Which makes Kanye West a member by marriage. Last year, he posed alongside his wife Kim for the French fashion house's Spring/Summer 2015 campaign, but now he's breaking out on his own.
The rapper stars in the the brand's latest campaign, now for Fall/Winter 2016, and he isn't flanked by his wife's famous family. Instead, he poses with supermodel Joan Smalls, she in a ruffled and belted pantsuit, he in the same outfit he wore to this this year's Met Gala: a jewel-encrusted jacket and ripped, denim jeans. The image was shot by legendary fashion photographer Steven Klein.
Olivier Rousteing, the 30-year-old designer and creative director behind the brand, posted the image with the tagline "MUSIC MEETS FASHION," so here's to hoping we get to see more of the two worlds colliding.
