As we wait patiently for Kanye to showcase this years Yeezy collection at NYFW, I sit down with a cup of tea in my hand reflecting his past collections. At this time, I am feeling ever more drawn to his collection from the first season.
Its military aspect was key. The collaboration’s first season was noted for its stripped down, ready-to-wear style, which drew on military clothing and flesh-toned colors. Vogue observed a pessimistic aesthetic and “a protective toughness, a body-conscious severity that made the clothes more than a simple accessory.”
With the current politics on hand, and the pessimism taste infiltrated in the air, this collection makes for a protective wall when worn.
Are you a fan of the first collection? Why or Why not?
