In all the brouhaha over Kim Kardashian's decision to dress her daughter North West in a faux corset, we still noticed another component of North's outfit that day: her tiny graffiti-ed Yeezy Boosts sneakers reportedly designed by a 10-year-old artist. Now Kim is revealing who that mysterious grade school artist is, according to InStyle.
His name is Harlow Cockrell, and he's pretty much cooler than we will ever be. Kim wrote on her app: "Harlow Cockrell is the son of one the people that works with Kanye at Yeezy. Originally, Kanye saw a photo of a shirt Harlow had customized and he asked him to bring it into the Yeezy office." That's how everything got started.
Just like that, he has a collab with Kanye and Kim's new kids' clothing line Kids Supply. Harlow scribbled all over hats, tees, jackets and Yeezys for the line's summer collection.
"Harlow loves to draw! He was showing us all of his sketches and we loved them, so we wanted to incorporate them into our collection," Kim wrote on her app. "He even made North a customized denim jacket for Christmas and he gave Saint a pair of Yeezys with his name drawn on them. So cute!"
Here's Harlow in his element:
Kids Supply shoppers must've been into Harlow's style, because it almost all sold out on the site (the hat is still available). But everyone who still wants to own a version of North's Yeezys, it's not too late: the site is restocking on Friday at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. Here's a look at all of his designs:
Meanwhile, folks on Instagram are asking Harlow if he's selling art directly. Must be nice to get the Kim and Kanye stamp of approval, this sounds way more lucrative than getting an allowance.
