As social media servers globally brace themselves for the launch of ‘Yeezy Season 1’ in 5 days time which is the inaugural AW15 collection by Kanye West X Adidas, I decided to take a closer look at the collection.
The men’s collection is heavily influenced by Kanye’s current asthetic of late with distressed military pieces in what is a very muted colour palette. Apart from the Yeezy Boost 750 there is no statement piece to speak of, it’s that low key.
The pricing of Yeezy Season 1 has me wondering what body parts or organs avid fans are thinking of selling to afford the collection. In September’s US GQ issue with The Weekend; styled by Kanye using Season 1 pieces you’ll note in the credits the pricing:
- Thermal shirt, $405 (£265)
- Crewneck, $495 (£323)
- Hoodie $545 (£356)
- Sweatpants, $585 (£382)
- Duck boots, $585 (£382)
- Sweater, $1,560 (£1,018)
- Vest, $1,170 (£764)
- Camo jacket, $2,210 (£1,443)
- Flight jacket, $3,250 (£2,122)
Are your eyes watering yet? Mine certainly are!
