Kanye West is no stranger to the front row at fashion shows, having even taken in a few couture shows in his time, but when he turned up at the 3.1 Phillip Lim men’s show on Friday, it was as much to support a friend as to see the designs. West told PEOPLE before the show began that “I just hang with Phillip all the time. It’s cool. He’ll come by the studio or whatever. And we’ll just talk about all kinds of stuff that doesn’t even have to do with clothes.” But that doesn’t mean that he isn’t a fan of the edgy menswear collection, wearing a suit from the line as he sat front row. And after seeing the collection presented, what is Mr. West’s review of the show? “I thought it was incredible. I loved the color combinations, ” West enthused. “He’s pushing it. Innovative. So I loved it.” No apologies necessary for that glowing praise! — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg; reporting by Jeffrey Slonim
