Remember the disaster that was Yeezy season 4? The year was 2016, Kim Kardashian had all her jewellery and the models were dehydrated, toppling, wobbling messes.
Yes, the extreme heat and fainting models left New York’s fashion and music elite stunned and sweaty and almost completely unable to take in the collection’s supposed reinvented minimalism since it’s previous season.
The show of course took place at Roosevelt Island – the narrow strip of land between Manhattan and Queens – and it was widely reported models and guests were told to wait in “holding pens” until show time.
Today, it was announced the rapper will be showing at a more traditional and popular venue: Pier 59 studios. Here, on February 15 at 5pm, West will unveil his Yeezy Season 5 in partnership with Adidas. The show will coincide with Marchesa and Assembly so he’ll be counting on his Real Friends to show at this one. The biggest problem though, according to Fashionista, is hailing a taxi in this area but if the street-cast models aren’t losing consciousness in front of said taxis, I’d say it’s a win for West this year. What do you think?!
A reminder of last year:
