Kanye breaks the rules again! West unveils NYFW collection in front of a star-filled crowd and matching Kim and North – but last-minute show and ‘beige’ designs leave fashion pack unimpressed. Despite much controversy over Kanye West’s decision to show off the official New York Fashion Week calendar, the rapper unveiled his second installment of Yeezy on Wednesday afternoon.
Much like Yeezy I, which was made in collaboration with Adidas (Yeezy II, is not), clothes included nude body suits and layers upon layers of utility separates (parka jackets, long coats, oversize knits, hoodies, and tailored canvas pants) in colors ranging from blush, to army green, brown and then black.
And while the show attracted one of New York Fashion Week’s most star-studded front rows thus far, with guests including Anna Wintour, Drake, and Lorde, as well as Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian and his sisters-in-law Khloe and Kourtney, and Kendall Jenner, despite its last-minute scheduling, it seems that fashionistas further afield were not overly fond of the rapper-turned-designer’s latest Yeezy offering.
