Over the weekend, rumors spread that Kanye West is looking into transforming Calabasas High School’s athletic wear and mascot name.
So far, only a phone call and link up occurred between Yeezy’s team and the president of CHS which was considerably a “low-level meeting.”
Stepenosky said, “There seems to be a lot more rumors than actual facts.” First, “$20 million is not accurate.” Second, “We received no proposal. We really don’t have anything to respond to.”
Rumor has it West also wants to change the school’s mascot name from Coyotes to Wolves. Stepenosky says it’s really not up for debate as the Alumnae classes will “lose their mind.” Although he did speak to CHS students and they would highly accept a celebrity icon to change the team name.
But what’s interesting about the uniform takeover the Yeezy Team wants is the similarities in the fashion realm.
Coincidentally, Adidas already has a partnership with CHS chscoyotefootball, so it’s a no brainer that the rapper/designer wants to collaborate since Adidas partner’s with Yeezy’s line as well.
Also, the mogu,l who lives in Calabasas with many highly acclaimed celebrities, already dropped a Calabasas inspired collection in March. And more recently, Kanye dropped a 1980’s throwback Adidas shoe called: “Adidas Yeezy Powerphase.”
The latest shoe was released on June 4th on Adidas.com, but is currently sold out and only can be purchased at third party retailers like Kixify for double the price or more from it’s original selling at $120.
Much of Yeezy’s Calabasas line has a sporty appeal, with labeling vertically and/or horizontally across reading “Calabasas.” It already proves there’s some school pride involved as the Ready-to-Wear collection is currently sold out at Yeezy Supply which says a lot about most fortunate millennials of Calabasas.
The only thing the collection is truly missing if it were to cater to CHS uniform policy is its black and gold school colors. The maroon, black and navy blue apparel definitely separates from what may determine what the alleged future athletic gear may consist of, but maybe that’s just what the school needs.
