Yeezy Season 4: Same Looks, Different Vibe
Last week the one and only Kanye West unveiled Yeezy Season 4 at the Frank D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City. This unveiling was a performative piece curated by Kanye West, Vanessa Beecroft, DONDA Creative, and Adidas. Although the collection was reminiscent of the past three seasons, the language that transcended throughout the fashion show was futuristic with militaristic undertones. From models standing in formation to models walking on the runway, which surrounded the standing models, the show pushed the envelope on how fashion can be experienced.
The articles of clothing and footwear also mirrors Kanye’s vision of blurring the lines from high fashion to ready to wear clothes that he wants worn on a day to day basis. Adidas has given Kanye opportunities which have allowed him to push boundaries and dream without limits. Despite the negative comments and flack Kanye and his team have received about the execution of the show, Kanye can’t be denied as an innovator who isn’t afraid to challenge the norms and status quo in fashion.
