Yeezy Season 4 Was All About #BlackGirlMagic #NYFW
#BlackGirlMagic was the underlying theme as celebrities, fashion editors and reporters battled the heat and made their way to Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedom Park for Kanye West‘s latest Yeezy x Adidas presentation. Models got in formation on the grassy field clad in monochromatic nude bodysuits, while the surrounding triangular runway saw appearances from Teyana Taylor, Chanel Iman and Sofia Richie to name a few.
Wife Kim Kardashian along with her sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner sat front row snapping selfies in cream colored pieces pulled straight from the collection.
But beauty proved to be painful as models couldn’t take the heat, with a few of the ladies even collapsing. And some were seen hobbling down the runway, with broken and bent heels. Model Amina Blue taking her shoes off mid-walk? Priceless.
Inspiration: Taking inspiration from everyday routines like going to the gym and shopping, the neutral collection blended elements of athletic and streetwear. Although his casting call for “multiracial” models received major backlash, he expressed his intent was to cast “all variations of black” to bring his vision to life. And that he did: there was a plethora of beautiful skin tones and hair textures represented in the show. In an interview with Vogue, Kanye described the collection in one word: timeless.“I want to make pieces that can be timeless. Pieces that you can pick up out of a vintage store in 20 years and say, ‘Wow, I’m happy I have this.’ I think it’s about embracing where me and my family live, where my kids are growing up, embracing the attitude and style of the Valley.”
Key Pieces: Spandex bodysuits, sports bras, off-the-shoulder sweaters, micro sweater dresses, neutral thigh-high boots, transparent knee-high boots, nude leotards, oversized shearling hoodies, print parkas, snakeskin ankle boots, camouflage jackets, cropped bra tops, oversized sweatshirts, large backpacks.
Who I Could See Wearing The Collection: Rihanna, Rita Ora, Cara Delevingne, and (of course) Kim Kardashian
