Since 2015, Kanye’s Yeezy Season label has been one of the most hotly anticipated shows of fashion week — and it doesn’t always deliver. Remember Yeezy Season 4 when Kanye made the fashion crowd trek out to New York’s remote-ish Roosevelt Island only to have the show start 90 minutes late with at least one model fainting in the sweltering heat?
This year, fashion editors were treated to a different kind of surprise at the showroom viewing for Yeezy Season 7. Rather than racks upon racks of oatmeal and biscuit coloured athleisure wear, Yeezy attendees reportedly arrived to an empty warehouse where an “unexpected meeting” took place to explain that no apparel or accessories would be presented for Yeezy Season 7 as “Kanye West couldn’t do what he wanted to achieve with this collection.”
Ever the perfectionist, we respect Kanye West’s commitment to reaching the heights of his artistic vision; even if, when it comes to fashion, it more or less manifests in hoodies and American Apparel-style bodysuits.
May Yeezy’s creativity return to him next season, for the sake of hypebeasts everywhere.
