  • Including Kim K’s MAJOR fashion statement

    After the slight disaster that was Kanye West’s last NYFW show (a two-hour late start, models fainting in the heat etc.), the fashion crowd was sort of waiting for the next (inevitable) spectacle to happen.

    As it happens, the drama was toned downed at the fifth instalment of Yeezy for Adidas. A little bit.

    Kanye being Kanye, there were still a few WTF moments, and we’ve charted them for you, because you know, we’re helpful like that.

    1. Kanye didn’t want anyone to see his new collection
    Literally no one. Minutes before the show, it was announced that no photos, phones or social media was allowed. According to reports, credentialed press were even kicked out of the show. Except for Anna Wintour. No one kicks Anna out.

    Safe to say, people were pretty pissed off.

    So we apologise for the lack of pictures in this story since there are basically none. A few mavericks still tweeted from the show though so here you go.

    2. Kanye was only 25 minutes late
    Pretty shocking in itself considering he was two hours late last time.

    3. Kanye sent a hijab-wearing model down the runway
    To be totally fair to Kanye, we thought we would include the positives too, so this is insane in a good way. He asked Halima Aden to model his collection, after she made headlines for competing in her state’s Miss USA competition while wearing a hijab.

    4. Kim K made the aubergine trend happen
    In case you didn’t know, aubergine is set to replace avocado this year as THE ultimate super food. Kim K is #TeamAubergine all the way, and she proved it in a head-to-toe burgundy look.

    5. Kanye didn’t take a bow at the end of the show
    Kanye arguably likes a bit of an ego boost (he did say he was God once), so it was a bit surprising that he didn’t take a bow with the models at the end. He did pose for pics with his mates backstage though.
