Yesterday saw the start of fashion week and the grand unveiling of the long anticipated Yeezy x Adidas Originals RTW Collection (Also dubbed as Yeezy Seson 1.) The mens and women Fall/Winter 15 collection of apparel and footwear was presented in a show created by both West and contemporary artist Vanessa Beecroft.
The female collection made up of utilitarian looks which included sheer leggings & bodysuits. The Male collection boasted looks which play on Kanye Wests own street style from the past year or so. Gone are the shutter shades and glow in the dark themes. In with the military inspired distressed garments in a muted nude colour palette. The looks feel very post apocalyptic to me and of course the colours keep in with Kanyes preference for the “natural” look which if anyone has seen Kim K recently AKA Queen Camel we know he is a fan of.
As for footwear a woven lo-top Yeezy Boost was debuted, as well as the expected Yeezy Boost 750. Also shown were platform snow boots and suede stiletto heels.
The Collection wasn’t the only thing to make its fashion week debut as Sister-in-law Kylie Jenner took to the runway in her first real fashion show. She thanked Ye on instagram for “believing in me”
Sat front row were the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian West, Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Cassie, Diddy. however all can’t be as calm an muted as Kanyes collection as lil North cried her way through the show – awks!
Kanye describes his collection as the worlds first “solutions-based” clothing line, “I don’t want the clothes to be the life, I want the clothes to help the life.”
9000 pairs of Yeezy Boosts will go on sale on Valentines Day in NYC. The shoes can be reserved through a new app which will save time on awful queues and allow only one pair per customer to be bought to avoid them being resold.
Kanye disclosed in an interview that Taylor Swift was supposed to be in attendance but was a no show! OOOh
Take a look at the pics below, I love love love the varied selection of models used!
