Will.i.am makes sheepish run on Paris catwalk

PARIS (AP)—Will.i.am is used to filling stadiums, but a simple trip down the catwalk at Japanese label Rynshu’s spring-summer menswear show June 26 had the Black Eyed Peas’ rapper blushing.

Sporting a snug leather blazer, a pair of cropped harem pants in shiny black and clunky combat boots, will.i.am shuffled up the runway, shooting sheepish glances at the photographers’ pit as the audience encouraged him with a round of applause.

The performer is collaborating with the brand on a line christened “Will.I.Am x Rynshu” for next spring-summer and has worn clothes from last year’s collection in a music video. He and the other Black Eyed Peas are in Paris for a series of concerts here.

Sunday’s collection had a kind of eccentric rocker vibe to it, with lots of second-skin leather pants and slashed black jeans. In fact, it was hard to imagine any man without a platinum record daring to don the blazer covered in white sequins that glimmered like fish scales.
