You can always count on Kanye West’s Yeezy fashion shows to be a drama-filled affair. It’s always top-secret, always at an over-the-top location (he made attendees trek to Roosevelt Island last fall!) and always has ultra-famous faces in attendance, including, of course, his family. But Yeezy Season 5 was so low-key, Kim Kardashian West’s monochromatic purple outfit might have been the most exciting aspect of the afternoon.
Kanye’s show wasn’t controversial or start fashionably late (which it’s known to do), instead it was actually held at a typical runway venue (Pier 59), featuring a normal catwalk presentation with clothing that lived up to the “Calabasas-themed” collection. In fact, the thing we were most excited about was seeing Kim’s crazy sheer outfit.
She was spotted leaving her hotel room wearing an all-purple look that’s definitely in-keeping with her more laid-back style vibe. She was seen wearing a high-neck tank top with high-waisted sweat pants (elastic waistband and all!) with a matching aubergine puffer worn off-the-shoulders.
While we thought she was just supporting her hubby’s latest fashion vision, on Snapchat she explained that she really chose the all-burgundy outfit because she felt “really left out that one time.”
She’s of course referring to the time when her three sisters, Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, called themselves the “burgundy bitches” on Instagram wearing matching old school Champion sweats.
And though it’s definitely a statement, it’s relatively tame compared to the Yeezy attire she wore to his last four shows. Let’s walk down memory lane, shall we?
Kim spent Valentine’s Day with her hubby in N.Y.C., having a romantic dinner at Greenwich Village hotspot Carbone, but she remained in L.A. over the weekend while West worked in N.Y.C. so he could “focus on the show.” An insider told PEOPLE: “There is definitely some concern that the show will be too much stress for him. He gets so involved and it’s hard for him to not get obsessed.”
But the insider also said Kim’s been checking in him “to make sure he gets enough sleep.”
Looks like we’re in for a very focused new season!
