Kanye West Says All Hail Yeezy, Locks In Season 5 NYC Rollout

Published

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is keeping his Yeezy collection in the Big Apple. The hip-hop heavyweight is reportedly set to debut Yeezy Season 5 this winter in New York City.

Barring any changes, Ye’s fashion rollout will go down February 15 at Manhattan’s Chelsea Piers.

After a much buzzed-about (in ways both good and bad) Season 4 show on Roosevelt Island, Kanye West’s Yeezy collection is returning to New York Fashion Week this February for its Season 5 iteration. According to a press blast, Yeezy will show on Wednesday, February 15, at 5:00 p.m., a slot between Anna Sui and Thom Browne, currently also occupied by Marchesa. (Vogue)

Reports also suggest Mr. West might lean toward a heavy 90’s influence for this year’s collection.

As for the collection, West and Kim Kardashian West have been teasing Calabasas-branded merchandise on social media for nearly a year, leading fans to believe a release of the city merch is imminent. If the Wests’ new Instagram style is anything to go by, the suburban ’90s vibe will also be strong.

Over the past few years, Kanye has relied on big venues for his Yeezy debuts.

Last year’s Yeezy Season 4 show, which was live streamed via Tidal from the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island, came under fire for delays and difficulties, which included one model fainting from standing in the heat. While Kanye did not debut new music during the Yeezy Season 4 show, he’s used his past fashion events as a platform to share songs he’s been working on. “Wolves” was first played at the Yeezy Season 1 launch in February 2015, and “Fade” was played at Yeezy Season 2 later in the year. Yeezy Season 3, of course, was the premiere of The Life of Pablo. (Pitchfork)

Recent reports suggested Ye had a few new projects and surprises in the works.

“His kids are his number one priority for him and he wants to be a good dad and make his mother proud,” an insider shared with E! News. “He thinks about her every day.” In addition, Kanye is “feeling more on track” as he works on several business opportunities away from the public eye. “Kanye has a few surprise projects coming up that involves music and concerts in the spring and summer,” our source shared. “Plus he is working on his fashion line and some collaborations.” (E!
