Kanye West is probably one of the most unpredictable personalities in pop culture at the moment. When it came to his collaboration with Adidas, it’s safe to say it caused a many mix of emotions. Was it genius or a complete utter disaster? Let’s take a quick overview.
Front row taken by the likes of Anna Wintour, Beyonce, Jay Z, Rihanna and Justin Bieber who was even seen in between shots.
Quoting Kanye at New York Fashion Week, he said “I’m here to crack the pavement, I want to create something better for you.”
Well…That “better” didn’t exactly appeal to everyone. Fashion industry elites described the collection as a ‘joke’ and many others said it was a ‘lacklustre’
You’ve got to give it to him though, West took 18 months to make his collection live. The models were seen in flesh toned body stockings of all shapes and sizes, this was a hit to some, not only that, but there was an air of positivity on ‘diversity’ on the catwalk.
Fans on Twitter dismissed the negativity and continued to support West describing the Yeezy Boost collection as genius and a work of art.
With an ongoing military theme throughout, the mix of models were the staple of Kayne’s latest sound. The fierceness and appeal in Kanye’s recent production suggests that there are world issues bothering him which he clearly presented in his entire collection.
Personally I do like Kanye’s collection, however I’m not so sure about his NYFW show…I was more taken by what clothes the models were wearing that to focus on the shoes themselves.
Either way I think Kanye West deserves a pat on the back. To get your collection on the runway in New York is even a big deal itself. Well done Kanye!
