What a time to be alive. After the hype around Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 1 reached fever levels, some naughty rebel began leaking images of the collaboration online to everyone’s gratitude. For the uninitiated, YEEZY Season 1 is the Kanye West and Adidas’ Yeezy collaboration, which was shot by the super talented Jackie Nickerson. It offers an interesting and somewhat fresh perspective into the unique mind of Mr West, although that’s just the start of it.
Following the initial craze that surrounded the sneakerboots and the collection that debuted at New York Fashion Week we have been almost transfixed by Kanye’s every move, hoping we can predict what’s going to come next. To get yourself up to speed make sure you check out his interview with Complex that offered an in-depth look of his collection, as well as a taste of things to come.
The lookbook is more of a ‘teaser’ as the overly darkened and sexualised images show little of the designs themselves but I have to be honest I’m loving what I’ve seen so far. I’m a big fan of Kanye as I believe he gets a lot of stick that he doesn’t deserve. His music is miles above anything in the genre, he stays away from the ‘gangsta’ image, and he’s a family man that can produce along with the best of them (a full post on this is coming up in the future).
So here we are, a lot of hype and intrigue but nothing you would call sensational or crazy as many people predicted. Really looking forward to getting a hold of a few of the pieces in the future. Make sure you leave me a comment with your thoughts below or tweet me @StyleDivision
