Kanye West has consistently been recognized in the fashion industry as a fashion mogul light years ahead of his game, setting trends that everyone follows. His wardrobe is proof of this, with a rare piece from his collection fetching a high price. West's famously trendy one-of-one Goyard backpack that recently surfaced on the market sold for $55,000. The rare Goyard item was made available for purchase on the website of streetwear and high fashion reseller Justin Reed as part of his most recent drop of exclusive items. Other items in the set included those from the most recent Drake and Chrome Hearts collections. (Where is the CLB album, Drake?!)
Kanye West purchased the one-of-a-kind backpack in 2010 during Paris Fashion Week while dating Amber Rose's fine ass. On Justin Reed's website, the rapper's rare piece is described as follows: "While Kanye West and his girlfriend, Amber Rose, were in Paris during the 2010 Paris Fashion Week, West picked up his 1 of 1 'Robot Face' Goyard Backpack that he designed. The 1 of 1 Goyard backpack is just one of the many limited edition pieces that West has accumulated in his closet."
Along with a thorough overview of the one-of-a-kind item, it also includes a few images demonstrating the backpack's near-mint condition. The overall condition of the backpack is highlighted as slightly used, with just a few minor marks on it. The buyer of the unusual backpack remains unknown, with high fashion reseller Justin Reed refusing to disclose any names.
The Goyard luxury leather goods brand appears to be a personal favorite for Ye, with the rapper referencing it on previous songs, most notably on his 2007 single "The Glory." After spending so much money on a one-of-a-kind item, it appears that the buyer was a fan of the French brand themselves.
