Kanye for Topshop?

He's already 'fessed up to plotting his second runway show for Paris Fashion Week. But does Kanye West have a secret Topshop collaboration in the works too?

The fashion-minded rapper is rumored to be in talks to team up with the British retailer after meeting Topshop boss Sir Philip Green for lunch at Harrods on February 7, the Mirror's 3am column reports.

"Kanye has wanted to work with Sir Philip Green for some time," a source reveals to the newspaper.


"They were in the restaurant for several hours tossing ideas back and forth. Kanye is obsessed with the female shape so if he did a range it would be pretty revealing–not for wallflowers.”

Green, however, is playing down the meeting.

"I had lunch with him and, sorry, do I have to report who I have lunch with in the Daily Mirror," he responded. 

"He was very hungry. So was I. That’s what happens at lunchtime. There was no conversation going on. He’s a friend of my son.”

Hmmm. Though Topshop has partnered with the likes of Kate Moss, Pamela Love, and, most recently, NEWGEN alumni like Erdem and Christopher Kane, rumored collaborations with Rihanna, Florence Welch, and Gwyneth Paltrow have failed to come to fruition.

Still, we'll be watching Kanye's moves. And his Twitter feed—goodness knows he can't keep quiet for too long!
