Tonight, at the Yeezy Season 3 presentation that we devoted two hours of our lives to, Kanye West announced again that it's his dream to work at Hermès. Specifically, to be the creative director, which is probably a dream many other people have, too. After thanking Adidas, his wife Kim, and the audience, Kanye told the crowd: "I told Anna this backstage, but to be the Creative Director of Hermès would be a dream of mine."
Two days ago, Kanye tweeted a photo taken by Christopher Ardoff of a woman's mouth with an Hermès Paris label hanging off her bottom lip with the caption: "2017?" That gives him about ten months to land the gig.
Update: He's back:
