Yeezy season 4 came and went just like that. It seemed like a little blip, but let's brace ourselves as Forever 21, Zara and H&M trip over themselves to copy the clothes showcased. Hypebeast kids are gonna deny that they think some of the clothes are trash because Yeezy made it. For the record, I dont think any of it is trash, but lets' face it, we all know kids carry fake opinions.
Kanye's got Beecroft as his secret weapon again. The italian artist known for her live compositions of women standing in formation worked alongside West to execute a vision of an island populated by "Multiracial girls only." Now all the people who raised a stink about him being discriminatory can take a chill pill as its very clear that he wasn't biased against dark girls. Girls of all shades were there.
The jackets were dope, I'm not gonna lie. I'm not about to empty my bank account for them, but I mean, I'd probably buy the knockoff.
I don't think there's any political statement to be made. I think the art is supremely superficial, the tan undergarments clashing against the dark skin... the triangle formation. It doesn't have anything to say in my opinion. So anyone reading into it is probably reaching. It's pure aesthetics, but well executed aesthetics. Also, is it just me or is this the most accessible line of "YeezyWear" to come out? There's no ratty holes in it, no stormtrooper - esque boots... I mean the girls all kinda look like Jedi's but last time I checked, Star Wars was cool.
No disrespect to Yeezy at all... I find the creativity that bursts forth from these things to be inspiring.
