Kanye West kept his Season 4 show top secret, only allowing celebrities and select members of the press to behold his latest collection, held at Roosevelt Island in New York.
Despite the outrage his call for ‘multiracial’ models elicited, loads of brown beauties and women of various races populated a grassy field, clad in subtle nude and brown tones, surrounded by a white runway.
Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner sat front row and snapped selfies in cream colored and beige ensembles accessorized by suede and clear boots; a foreshadowing of what viewers could expect this season.
The offering didn’t differ much from what the Kardashian/Jenners had on tap: Yeezy Season 4 featured khaki coats uplifted by plexi heels, army fatigues and boots of varying lengths (thigh high and ankle), and sweater dresses, mock knit bikinis, and parkas in cream and white:
Teyana Taylor showcased her abs in a black cut out unitard and booties, followed by Chanel Iman, also clad in black.
The show was not free of its mishaps; according to one report, a few models fainted in the heat. Several of the shoes broke, leaving models hobbling down the runway, or simply taking off their shoes so they could complete the loop without bodily harm. The sight of step impaired models was somewhat dismaying, given the popularity of Yeezy’s shoe selections (though we’re sure West will correct for this by time of production).
But overall the show offered a sleek continuum of the sporty, minimalist, monochromatic aesthetic for which Kanye’s Yeezy’s collections are known. Expect sheer, underboob, sports bras, leggings, close fit cocktails, and unitards in natural color palettes.
