- North West wore the same Pastelle varsity jacket as her dad in July.
- Kim Kardashian said she had to get the jacket online rather than getting it from Ye.
- Kardashian said that Ye was not attached to her things, but saved them for their children.
Kim Kardashian has revealed she had to buy one of her ex-husband Ye’s old jackets to give to her daughter North West, who wore the jacket in Paris.
In “The Kardashians” Season 2 finale, Kardashian, North, and Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, traveled to Paris for Paris Fashion Week. While there, North sported one of her dad’s old looks — a brightly colored varsity jacket from Ye’s unreleased clothing line, Pastelle — to stop by a Balenciaga store in Paris, GQ reported.
She didn’t get it directly from her father, however, Kardashian revealed in the episode.
“Kanye has a tendency to not care about his stuff and just give it his all, and it got all over the internet,” Kardashian said as she got her hair and makeup done. “And I got it last week.”
Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, wore the jacket to the 2008 American Music Awards, GQ reported. The Pastelle line was Ye’s first real foray into the fashion world, but it was never fully released, Complex reported.
According to boutique owner Justin Reed, who told Complex he sold the garment to Kardashian, Kardashian reached out after selling a Pastelle jacket for $10,000 earlier in the year. Eventually, he was able to locate another of the jackets — probably not the exact same one Ye wore a decade and a half before, he said — and sell it to Kardashian.
Kardashian said Ye now realizes how “protective” she is of her historic items when it comes to preserving them for their children.
“Even now, when he was about not talking to me and being mad at me, he won a couple of Grammys and I still reached out and said, ‘I know that you just won a few Grammys, I need to add them to the vault,” she said during the episode. “And he says, ‘Okay.’ Because the kids want them, you know? And I want them all together, so I got them all together.
