The Highly Anticipated and Scrutinized Kanye West Yeezy Season 1 Debuts today October 29 and We’re Here to Let You Know What to Expect, Where to Buy It, and How Many Yeezy Coins You Need to Dress Like Yeezus.
Today is the day that Yeezy fans across the world have been anxiously awaiting. Kanye West is finally releasing his debut collection with Adidas, Yeezy Season 1, and we’re exploring the collection to see what all the hype is about.Â West himself has high hopes for the collection which is no surprise as he shared earlier this yearÂ “I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period.” With such high esteem for a newly launched clothing line, there must be something to back it up, right?
The Collection itself is the opposite of what many would expect from West. Neutral, toned down, and easy going are words used to describe the comfortable, from lounge-to street inspired collection.Â “I don’t want the clothes to be the life. I want the clothes to help the life,” said Kanye West after hisÂ presentation during New York Fashion Week in February. On these notes, we must acquiesceÂ that Mr. West did indeedÂ deliver. The vibe of the collection has a certain lightness to it that is confident but not at all over thought. A strong , neutral color palette of earth tones in green, heathers, and browns blend harmoniously with worn camouflage prints and distressed knits. The fit is both modern and tailored with oversized sleeves and crop tops accentuated by subtle visual details.
The Decision Makers behind the collab have kept prices fairly under wraps and the most comprehensive quotes we have come from a recent GQ Editorial which gave us the following insights: Hoodie $545, Thermal shirt, $405,Â Sweater, $1,560,Â Crewneck, $495,Â Sweatpants, $585,Â Duck boots, $585, Vest, $1,170,Â Camo jacket, $2,210, Â andFlight jacket, $3,250. In a more recent update from FashionistaÂ prices listed included: Yeezy Bra Tank, $130, Men’s Cotton Tank, $180, Long Johns or Cotton Hoodie, $545, Shearling Bomber, $3,380, Long Shearling Coat, $4,550. Apparently, Adidas and Yeezy expect shoppers with style and American Express Black Cards.
