Kanye West to Debut Yeezy Season 5 at New York Fashion Week

Kanye West Yeezy season 5 After the successful (albeit rocky) launch of his Yeezy Season 4 collection at last year’s New York Fashion Week, Kanye West is heading to Chelsea Piers to launch Yeezy Season 5.

After the delays and issues at last year’s launch event at Madison Square Garden, including one model fainting from standing in the heat, West opted for a more traditional venue in Pier 59 Studios. The show is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m, according to Vogue, and falls into the same time slot as the Assembly and Marchesa shows.

While he didn’t promote any new music at the Season 4 launch, West has used his past fashion events as a platform to share songs he’s been working on. “Wolves” was first played at the Yeezy Season 1 launch in February 2015, and “Fade” was played at Yeezy Season 2 later in the year. Yeezy Season 3, of course, was the premiere of The Life of Pablo.

While details about the collection are being kept under wraps until the show, social media posts from both West and his wife, Kim Kardashian-West, suggest a suburban 90’s vibe.

After a tumultuous 2016, this will be West’s first big project of the new year. He is also rumored to be working on new music with fellow G.O.O.D music artists.
