Jimmy Kimmel extended the olive branch — or in this case, the designer duds — to Kanye when he appeared on his show on Oct. 9. The host gave Kanye a pair of leather jogging pants for his 3-month-old daughter Nori — and Yeezus didn’t quite know what to make of the gesture.
Kanye West appeared on Jimmy Kimmel‘s late night show on Oct. 9. The pair famously feuded in a Twitter war when Jimmy mocked Kanye interview. In attempts to apologize to Kanye, Jimmy offered up a fashionable gift for his daughter North West — a mini pair of leather pants with some major “swag.” What do YOU think of the gift?
Jimmy Kimmel Gives Kanye West Leather Jogging Pants For North
Kanye cracked a sideways smile when Jimmy pulled out a gift of tiny trousers for his daughter.
Jimmy’s concern wasn’t practicality, but having some fun with the fashionable dad. “That doesn’t sound practical; it sounds sweaty,” Jimmy laughed about the tiny black leather pants.
Jimmy’s gift prompted Kanye to talk about the fashion industry — and the statements garments make.
“Fashion isn’t always practical. It’s more about emotion, it’s more about swag,” Kanye responded. While leather athletic gear for an infant isn’t practical at all, those pants definitely have swag.
North West’s Designer Gifts
Jimmy’s gift wasn’t the only one she’s gotten. In just a couple months of life, she has accumulated every fashionista’s dream closet. Top fashion designers gifted the little girl custom-made mini versions of their hottest designs when her parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye visited France for Paris Fashion Week. From Alexander Wang to Givenchy, Nori’s stylish new duds are seriously enviable. The leather pants actually go quite well with her sophisticated wardrobe.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think it’s funny that Jimmy gave North leather pants?
