Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 Fashion Show Was His Most Low-Key Ever
Unlike last fall’s trek to Roosevelt Island, or last spring’s concert at Madison Square Garden, Kanye West is keeping things simple for Yeezy Season 5. His fashion show took place Pier 59 in N.Y.C. in a much more traditional setting (for Kanye, that is).
Based on Snapchats from Kim Kardashian West, what we know so far is that the show features a presentation with models spinning on revolving plates before hitting a square-shaped traditional runway.
Then the models hit the catwalk to a new remix of J. Holiday’s song “Bed” modeling lots of oversize looks that included military-inspired army green, camouflage-print outfits. Plus there were major denim, fur and sportswear moments throughout the “Calabasas-theme” collection.
And the front row was filled with his usual high-profile fans including his wife, Kim Kardashian (who showed up in the most Yeezy outfit possible — purple sweatpants and a turtleneck tank top) sitting next to Vogue‘s Anna Wintour. Noticeably absent were the couple’s children, North and Saint West. North has been a FROW staple at her dad’s show in year’s past.
Hailey Baldwin was also perched front and center alongside family friend La La Anthony, both wearing beige ensembles featuring ultra-short hemlines.
And based on Kylie Jenner’s latest snaps (which features Kim talking about her all-purple outfit) she was also most likely in attendance.
West didn’t do a traditional bow at the end, but instead had Kim stand up from her seat and walk out first, to signal that the show was complete.
