Kim Kardashian, with baby North West in her lap, Lorde, Common, Kendall Jenner, Courtney Love, Riccardo Tisci, Cameron Crowe, Michael Strahan, Seth Meyers and Debbie Harry were in the 1st and 2nd row, to check out Kanye West’s 2nd sportswear collaboration with Adidas. West 27th Street got to witness the Spring Yeezy show on Wednesday. Even Drake showed up.
The runway show was choreographed with the help of artist Vanessa Beecroft and essentially consisted of a series of drills, which had “sergeants” escorting models out in groups, including model-stylist-street style-disruptor Ian Connor, smoking a vape all the way down the runway.
The soft, streety, layered sportswear for men and women seemed to have a light military vibe. Flak jackets, duster coats, cool-looking wide-leg sweatpants that zipped up the sides and flesh-toned body shapers (this might be an ode to Kim). On the feet were desert boot-inspired sneakers, sure to be an immediate sellout, and groovy sock boots.
The show ended on a good note, with a song. “I feel it; I feel it’s fate,” the song went. And the front row felt it, too, with Common head-bopping, Courtney Love toe-tapping and North West dancing.
”He has a really great style point of view,” said Humberto Leon, co-founder of the specialty store Opening Ceremony, which will receive its first full Yeezy Adidas delivery in stores next month.
