Kanye West

Screw Louis Vuitton

10/28/2013 12:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

102813_kanye_power106_launchThe Louis Vuitton Don is no more ... Kanye West is now trashing the upscale brand for screwing their customers ... and claims he won't design for L.V. again.

Mr. West was on Big Boy's Neighborhood this morning on Power 106 in Los Angeles -- and put Louis on BLAST.

As you may recall ... Ye coined his nickname "Louis Vuitton Don" on his debut album "College Dropout."  He also designed a sneaker collection for the luxury brand in '09.

But now Kanye says he'd turn the designer down, if asked again ... mostly because of the outrageous amount they charge for their products.

Check out the video to hear his full explanation.

FYI -- Kanye's Louis sneakers had a price tag north of $800 ... and he once sat front row with L.V.'s CEO during Paris Fashion Week to promote the shoes.

It's funny to see Kanye say someone else charges too much for their clothing. He has his own lines and they aren't cheap either.

Kayne is the most influential person in fashion in the last 10 years? HA! His arrogance knows no bounds. Plus, his English teacher mother would be ashamed of his grammar.

This bs from this hypocritical A44hole who thinks they are ripping of the customer for their quality merchandise and he charges $120 plus for his lower quality t shirts. He is truly a complete douchebag and a classless, ugly, angry one at that. They probably want nothing to do with him anyway and as far as him being a fashion anything, he is as joke in the industry. A mediocre, no talent hack with no staying power.

Wow, what talent. Didn't he also design T shirts? I'm surprised this dumb looking goofball can even spell T.

It's as if he didn't know before how much that stuff costs. I guess he proved once again how clueless he is.

Or.... He signed a deal with someone else and burned that bridge.

I doubt if anyone will even notice or care that he no longer associates himself with LV. He's so out there it's only a matter of time before the real fun begins. I can't wait!

Well Kanye you had no problem promoting them at $800 a pop so what's happened have Vuitton kicked your ass to the curb so now you think if you yap about how bad they are it makes you look better? At the end of the day you are no better because you take full advantage of all the media and promoters have to offer

This TRASH again? Why didn't he put the tennis shoe maker on BLAST??? Those tennis shoes were selling for $5,000 a PAIR with his name/design on them!! HELLO? Kanye uses the media to bully & attack people. He bullied Jimmy Kimmel and Kimmel allowed Kanye to make him kiss his as* back to his show. I be damned. Kanye would still be holding his breath! Had I been Kimmel..

The Kardashian family better start keeping Kayne under Control or they will lose all free fashion from designers.
