While we await the hotly anticipated film adaptation of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” it’s already safe to say that Robert Pattinson will be seen sporting a new look. The British actor is set to debut a fuller, classier hairline and shave off his goatee, the trademark look of his character, Edward Cullen. Perhaps the most surprising thing about the upcoming film is that it’s going to be co-directed by some bigwig from the world of fashion. Rumors already have begun to swirl that Kanye West is going to play a crucial role in shaping the look of the film. So while some may be excited about the prospect of seeing Pattinson with a full head of hair, it’s actually going to be Kanye who will be dictating the stylings of London fashion.

Who’s Driving This Trend?

It’s no secret that fashion and Hollywood often collide, but this time it’s going to be different. Even if you’ve never heard of Kanye West, you’ve almost certainly heard of his fashion house, Yeezy Season 5, which he opened in May 2015 with partner, Louis Vuitton. Since then, the fashion house has gone from strength to strength, becoming the fastest-growing brand within the luxury conglomerate. The brand’s head office is based in Paris, with stores in London, Milan, and Dubai. It’s fair to say that West is now one of the most influential figures in fashion, if not THE most influential figure. If you’re unfamiliar, West is a fashion designer who has collaborated with top brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Armani.

Is This the End of the ‘Gentleman’ Trend?

It’s one thing to have a taste for the finer things in life and to have the financial means to indulge your desires. It’s another thing to have enough influence that you can make others do your bidding. We’ve seen how much power celebrities have these days, whether it’s Meryl Streep’s or Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar speeches or Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show. Now, it looks like we’re going to see fashion and celebrity collide on a whole new level. With the help of Louis Vuitton, who is one of the fashion industry’s biggest names, West is going to be able to dictate the style of an entire movie. Even if you hate fashion, you have to admit that this is going to be one stylist-slash-director collaboration you don’t want to miss.

‘The Twilight Saga’ Is The Ideal Brand Realization

If you’ve been following fashion closely over the past few years, then you’ll know that brands have slowly been taking inspiration from fantasy worlds and films for their autumn/winter 2015-16 collection. As we’ve established, fantasy worlds have always been a fertile ground for designers to mine their outfits for movies and TV shows. For Louis Vuitton, it was their take on J.M. WESTON’s Edward Cullen from “The Twilight Saga” books, complete with mermaid jewelry and a sculptural hairstyle. For Gucci, it was the fantasy world of Narnia for their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection. Dior went even further, putting a modern spin on characters from the 1939 classic, “Gone With The Wind.”

Whether you love or hate fashion, it’s hard to deny that most of these brand collaborations are incredibly stylish and artistic. It takes a skilled hand to be able to pull off a collection like this, and it’s clear that Louis Vuitton and Kanye West know how to work together. With a background in both fashion and film, it’s certainly no wonder that Louis Vuitton tapped into West’s skillset for this project. On the topic of working with others, West has always been a prolific collaborator with A-list artists and fashion designers, having worked with the likes of Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, and many more. His track record speaks for itself, so it’s safe to assume that this is yet another collaboration that will live up to our highest expectations.
