Yeezy taught us that nothing is better than a strong comeback. Kanye West is set to make his during New York Fashion Week this February 15th with the debut of Yeezy Season 5. His partnership with Adidas yields big expectations for this next collection.
The fashion industry was reluctant to put West on the runway schedule because of mishaps that occurred during the Season 4 debut at Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms Park. Along with the fact that some models fainted during the show due to the September heat, critics deemed his collection unimpressive. “They were just boring. Not ambitious or eclectic or even surprising”, fashion director of The New York Times, Vanessa Friedman, observed. Some even doubted that he would be included in this year’s fashion show, which naturally serves as motivation for a comeback.
Yeezy Season 5 will be revealed at Pier 59 studios, which allows easier access to the general public than last year’s show. A strong 90’s suburban style is predicted to emerge, based on West’s recent Instagram posts. There is also a possibility of the premiere of West’s upcoming album, Turbografx16, for he revealed The Life of Pablo during Yeezy Season 3.
This will be West’s first public appearance since his apparent breakdown last November, resulting in total cancellation of his Saint Pablo tour and hospitalization at the UCLA Medical Center. His recent low-profile keeps the secrets of this next collection under the radar, so keep an eye out for Yeezy retaliation!
