NewsYeezy Season 4: Everything You Need to Know About Kanye West's Latest Fashion Show
Yeezy Season is here once again to shake up NYFW.
Yeezy Season 4, Kanye West's fourth collection under the Yeezy label, will debut at 3PM on Wednesday, September 7 in New York City. All eyes are on West to see if or how he'll top last season's massive Yeezy Season 3 Madison Square Garden runway show/art installation/The Life of Pablo listening party that dominated New York Fashion Week headlines. It's no matter that the clothes from that show have yet to arrive in stores. In fact, since Yeezy Season 1 hit shelves last October, very few pieces from Kanye's runway offerings have actually made their way onto store shelves. (The shoes made in collaboration with Adidas, however, are still unquestionably the hottest sneakers in the game.)
But fashion shows aren't just about new threads, something West certainly understands. His shows are as much cultural happenings as they are a way to get really excited about garment-dyed hoodies. He's used his time slots to debut new music, stack his front rows with the most important—and often very famous—people in the fashion game, even kick off the great merch wars of 2016. So, with Yeezy Season 4 coming very quickly but any details about collection still unknown, we're gathering everything we do know for sure in one place. (Check back often as we'll be updating this space as soon as new info surfaces.)
