On the subject of skinny jeans, West explains, “Skinny pants are rock ‘n’ roll. And big coats are really hip-hop. I’m looking for 50 percent rock ‘n’ roll, 50 percent hip-hop, 50 percent genius. Because, you know–for genius, you have to be at a hundred and fifty percent.” See more images from West’s shoot at GQ.com.<img data-attachment-id="332687" data-permalink="https://www.thefashionisto.com/kanye-west-styles-gq-talks-emotional-layers-skinny-jeans-big-coats/kanye-west-gq-august-2014-style/#main" data-orig-file="https://www.thefashionisto.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Kanye-West-GQ-August-2014-Style.jpg" data-orig-size="1244,516" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{"aperture":"0","credit":"","camera":"","caption":"","created_timestamp":"0","copyright":"","focal_length":"0","iso":"0","shutter_speed":"0","title":""}" data-image-title="Kanye-West-GQ-August-2014-Style" data-image-description data-image-caption="Kanye West on Style-For the August 2014 cover story of American GQ, rap artist Kanye West styles himself for a photo shoot with Patrick Demarchelier. Talking about layering, West shares, “If you’re wearing layers, you can be in L.A., New York, Paris, in an airport lounge, or on a plane, taking layers on and off however. And the proportions get emotional. You know how a graphic can express a feeling or an emotion? Layers can, too.”
