Kanye goes on Twitter rampage, leaks Yeezy Season 3 previews

Last night, the rapper turned designer gave his followers a sneak peek of the collection – and of a zine too

Kanye West – the somewhat contentious new kid on the fashion block – is presenting Yeezy Season 3 at New York Fashion Week on Thursday. Ahead of the show, the American rapper turned fashion designer took to Twitter, leaking a number of previews of the collection. From these pictures, which appear to have been taken at the show fittings, we can deduce several things.

First, that A$AP Rocky is involved in the show – one picture was of a Polaroid, apparently taken by the rapper, of an unidentifiable figure wearing a pair of adidas YEEZY BOOSTs in white. Second, that Kanye is releasing a zine. “Season 2 Zine pronounced Zeen short for magazine,” he tweeted, “A lot of people pronounce it wrong.” Third, that acclaimed American photographer Jackie Nickerson, who shot his last two lookbooks, is involved again – West alluded to the fact that they were location scouting for the zine’s launch party together. 

As for the collection, one picture (captioned “wifeylook”) revealed that he’s designed a look especially for his wife, Kim Kardashian – this look consists of distressed ribbed knit teamed with a heavily embellished skirt with fringing. We can also deduce that Yeezy Season 3 is going to be a more colourful offering than West’s previous, flesh-coloured collections. One knit comes in red and orange while a sock (paired with a perspex heel in the pictures) comes in a bright shade of blue.

West will be presenting the collection at Madison Square Gardens, an event which is said to coincide with the release of his highly-anticipated new album. While hype around the show is building (particularly among his fans), West has also drawn criticism for forcing several emerging designers, including Marissa Webb and Adam Selman, to reschedule their shows, which were due to be staged at the same time as West’s. 

Stay tuned for coverage of the Yeezy Season 3 show.
