After months of speculation, Kanye West YEEZY SEASON 1 collection will finally be available. For Autumn/Winter 2015, the Yeezy Season 1 is a collection of clothing and footwear that celebrates universality and timelessness. It was like yesterday when Kanye ranted on Zane Lowe and now, the same guy created the designs for the rapper. After all, if Kanye wanted to be a fashion icon, he should make people flock to his items.
The YEEZY SEASON 1 for Women debuted last February at New York Fashion Week with Beyonce and few other celebrities witnessing the launch. The sneakers from YEEZY SEASON 1 for Men have already been released with the hi-top Yeezy Boost 750, and two colorways of the Yeezy Boot 350 were already sold. The newest footwear from the collection, the Yeezy 950 Boots, will be available with the rest of the apparel.
Alongside the most anticipated YEEZY 950 boots for men and platform snow boots for women, the collection reflects Kanye’s taste for aesthetic and Adidas’ flair for technology and innovation. Since the Yeezy Season 1 is represents Kanye’s style, expect the fit to be oversized. In recent years, Yeezus proved that his closet became fuller, drapier, and more oversized than ever before. Drop shoulders and drapey style is the approach that Kanye is going for.
Yeezy Season 1 gives us easily layered basics in neutral palettes such as camel, olive, blue gray, chocolate brown, and cranberry. With reference to Kanye’s boxy silhouette, the collection also included billowy sweatshirts and camo-style sweaters in worn edges. Ladies should enjoy curve-hugging cotton separates. The most remarkable of all are the MA-1 bomber jackets, quilted nylon vests parkas with faux fur-trimmed hoods and in camo-prints, cropped shearling jackets with extra-long sleeves. More so, the collection also offers a range of androgynous items including thermal tees crew neck sweaters, and sweatpants.
In cooperation with the global launch of Yeezy Season 1, SSENSE collaborated with the celebrated photography duo Sean + Seng on a visual essay inspired by Adidas Originals by Kanye West YEEZY SEASON. It featured neutral color palette and military foundations, with a dystopian environment in the background. The photography is meant to make us an idea on how to transition the pieces among work, leisure and trips. The unpretentious aesthetic and pieces from the collection will surely give us some style guide this Autumn..
While costly, Yeezy didn’t have trouble attracting customers as many are anticipating the release. The collection is a long time coming since Spring/ Summer 2016 looks are already in full blown. However, based on the lookbook, things are surely worth the wait. If you want to get your hands on the goods, you can check them at SSENSE for a smooth and hassle free shopping.
