Of all the members of the Kardashian-Jenner Klan, Kendall Jenner is the quietest. Besides being the star of her family’s reality TV show since she was very young, she’s also an international supermodel but manages to keep a lower profile than her sisters.
In a new interview with French YouTube show Clique, she spoke about the intersection of the modeling world and the hip-hop world she’s always somehow involved in.
When asked about her major creative inspirations, Kendall immediately mentioned Kanye West . “Kanye is not only is a creator in the fashion world, but he’s a creator in music, he’s a creator even in architecture, he goes as far as that,” Kendall said. “He’s a very creative mind.”
She also said she’s influenced by her friends, who are “all super creative.”
“I look up to them every single day,” she said. “That’s my goal in life, to surround myself with really creative people. I just want it to rub off on me!”
Kendall also had kind words for
Virgil Abloh, who was recently named the new men’s wear designer at Louis Vuitton. She listed him among her creative inspirations, but also as a major player in the current moment of fashion that mixes lowbrow with highbrow and “[brings] different cultures and styles together in a cool way.” For her, Virgil represents the “perfect mixture” of “a more casual really cool girl or guy style and bringing that into something really high fashion.”
“I think he’s gonna kill it [at Louis Vuitton],” she added.
