Kanye West Unveils Yeezy Season 3 – NYFW

Why unveil your new album and collection separately, when you can combine two of your biggest passions in just one show? We all know Kanye West likes to push the boat out, but probably very few of us expected him to present both his Yeezy Season 3 lineup and new album “The Life of Pablo” during the first day of New York Fashion Week fall 2016. Many were, however, the wow factors from this Madison Square Garden-located fashion show, including a platinum blonde wig, Yeezy’s habitué Anna Wintour and the show’s biggest star, Kanye and Kim’s beloved daughter North West.

That said, of course, what’s currently breaking the Internet is Kim’s hair, which Keeping Up with the Kardashians star combined with a total white outfit. Also, besides the biggest names in the fashion world, the show was staged for 18,000 people, among which were Kanye West’s fans and famous artists, such as rapper Busta Rhymes, Kardashian and Jenner clubs’ members (all dressed up in white), Pusha T, Travi$, L’il Kim, 50 Cent, Asap Rocky and Melanie Griffith, who all together probably had a lot of fun at the after-show party. Caitlyn Jenner, who’s very shy when it comes to attending fashion shows, was there to support Kanye West too.

As for the rapper-tuned-fashion designer Kanye West, he wore what could be regarded as a normcore meets athleisure outfit, which was composed of a basic baseball cap, a red pullover and a pair of Yeezy pants (his look made a kind of interesting contrast with Kim’s pretty sumptuous outfit). Kanye’s graphic pullover had ‘I Feel Like Pablo’ written on it, and besides hoping that what Kim was wearing was a wig (because it isn’t just me, right?), the Internet is also wondering who Pablo is. Is Kanye referring to Picasso?

As for the Yeezy Season 3 fall 2016 collection, it was quite different from the previous two. It features a more variegated color palette (that of Season 1 and Season 2 was closer to the grays) and has a stronger street-style allure. It was, however, athleisure-infused like the previous line-ups. Blues, bold yellows and rusty oranges spice up the collection’s dark side, accentuating the silhouettes and the bodysuits’ curve-hugging forms. Aside from stretchy bodysuits, Yeezy Season 3 featured such key pieces as oversized dusters and coats and tea-length pencil dresses, which seem to be very dear to West’s beloved wife (and probably muse) Kim Kardashian. Crop-tops, hoodies and supper skinny leggings reinforce the athleisure leitmotif, enhancing the models’ toned bodies and barely-legal abs.

Although not being what could be regarded as a conventional concert, Kanye managed to delightfully combine the results of his new works together, keeping on with collaborating with Italian artist Vanessa Beecroft. Charged to choreograph the installation for West’s Yeezy Season 3, Beecroft set up a sort of refugee camp in the center of the floor, where most of the models and performers, incuding gorgeous Naomi Campbell, stood and sat during the catwalks. Such a choice is of course raising concern and questions, and West has yet to comment about the meaning behind the whole fashion show’s concept.

He did, however, let us know his future plans, which include becoming the creative director of one of the most famous and iconic fashion houses of the world. “My dream, I told Anna [Wintour], is to at least just for a couple of years be the creative director of Hermès.” Beware, Nadège Vanhée- Cybulski!
