Kanye West Cites Leviticus In Fashion Line Interview: My Apparel Team Is Told Not To Mix Materials [VIDEO]

“I’ll be working on designs and looking at references from 3,000 years ago and reading the Old Testament at the same time. So it’s like a soundtrack to the visuals of the shapes and the ideas and ideals of what we’re creating. A lot of my creative friends, I tell them like the Bible is better than Pinterest. You can bring something into space and time we exist in while reflecting thousands of years of truth.”

“It [Leviticus] says ‘You should keep my statutes. You should not let your cattle breed with a different kind. You shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor shall you wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of material.’ I tell my apparel team that the clothes that we’re using are of a single material.

“I remember sending a manager I used to work with a really rude email about how every time he wore this wool jacket with leather sleeves, he set culture back by ten years. So now I can send him the verse from the Bible that says ‘You should not wear a garment of cloth made of two kinds of materials.'” – Kanye West, speaking to Forbes.
