Kanye West will debut his Yeezy season 5 collection tomorrow, Feb. 15, the second to last day of NYFW 2017.
West made the MVP decision to miss the 59th Annual Grammy Awards and stationed himself in NYC to assure everything was ready to go for the launch of the Yeezy Season 5 collection.
Last year, West launched his Yeezy Season 4 collection at Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, Roosevelt Island, an untraditional venue for a NYFW event to be held. This year, Yeezy Season 5 will debut at Pier 59, a more traditional NYFW location.
With this being his first official public appearance since canceling the Saint Pablo tour, West reveals an entirely new look. When released from the hospital, pictures of him sporting a new hair-do that had a sherbet vibe to it were found on social media.
West’s street style influence the street-wear community of fashion so heavily. Here we see him embodying a military themed outfit, rocking an oversized Raf Simons bomber jacket, sweatpants by Gosha Rubchinskiy, and his own Yeezy designed combat boots. As for his new hair craze, but definitely improved from his last one, he features a platinum blond-ish color.
Only West can pull off these extreme new trends without getting clowned for experimenting with them. The man certainly is a trend setter and it’s only a matter of time before we see people walking around these streets with platinum hair and military inspired outfits.
