5 things to remember from the Yeezy Season 5 show by Kanye West
- His Origins : inspiration for Kanye West
For his Yeezy Season 5 collection, it was in his childhood that Kanye West found inspiration and more particularly in the Calabasas ghetto in Los Angeles where he comes from. Thus, the name of the motorway exit “Lost Hills” that leads to Calabasas is found printed on sweats, vests or coats.
2) Eternal collaboration with Adidas
This season again, Kanye West has proposed pieces created in collaboration with Adidas for a always sportswear style always.
3) Look street and denim
For the Yeezy Season 5 collection, the total sportswear look has been revisited with more street pieces. There are denim-washed total look worn with leather pleated boots. Far from innovating, the creator singer proposes his version of the silhouette in vogue : the oversize sweatshirt with skinny jeans and boots thigh boots… lingering sense of déjà vu…
4) A show outside the catwalk
The singer accustomed to spectacular presentations decided not to scroll his models in the usual way. It is on giant screens that appeared models pivoting on backstage platforms. Only the finale allowed the guests to see the pieces in vivo.
5) Halima Aden : a model like no other
The most sensational surprise of the show is perhaps not the collection itself but the face of a mannequin. His name: Halima Aden. This former Somali refugee participated in the show, wearing her hijab under a faux fur coat.
