Everybody has mixed opinions on Kanye West’s latest collaborative effort with Adidas on the first day of New York Fashion Week.
From nude body stockings to see-through skin-coloured crop tops, the outfits were entirely unforgiving – and strictly for the body confident. But while public opinion is still out, the bizarre ensembles do at least have one famous fan in the shape of Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian.
The 34-year-old reality TV star liked the look so much, she even posted an Instagram photo of herself in one of the sheer ensembles, adding the legend: “My look for the Yeezy show!!!!!! Yeezy head to toe!!!!!”
In the past, Kanye had famously declared that he was trying to “crack the pavement and build new grounds” in the fashion industry, but his new collection seemed to be way off the mark.
UK’s Daily Mail likened the line to the Emperor’s New Clothes fairy tale, as the transparent threads defeated the purpose of wearing clothes in the first place– to cover your shame.
The Adidas x Kanye West line even failed to impress his own community, with Afro-American website The Roots described the line as: “Tonight Iâ€™m going to gather my Wal-Mart sweater and take a pair of scissors and make my own Yeezy sweatshirtâ€”then I’m going to let my dog wear it, because no one in their right mind would want to be caught dead in it.” Ouch.
On the other hand, the fact that Kanye succeeded in reeling Alexander Wang and Anna Wintour on the front row is a testament to his popularity.
In a review posted on Vogue’s website, they seem notably impressed at the fact that Kanye had managed to persuade Adidas to drop their traditional three stripe logo from his designs, a feat never achieved by their previous collaborators.
“Hems were raw and frayed, tops billowy, bottoms either skintight to slide into newly unveiled suede stiletto boots or cinched and ready to be tucked into aforementioned Boosts.
“There were immaculate flak vests and officer sweaters that looked like theyâ€™ve actually taken shrapnel, and everything was said to be unisex.
Concluding: ‘On display, in rigid lines of expressionless youth, it was at the very least satisfyingly instigative for a line of sportswear.”
He has also been praised for using a variety of models, notably men and women of different races, shapes and sizes, but we still think the collection is disgusting.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
