The time has come. Kanye West’s debut collection with Adidas, Yeezy Season 1, will go on sale around the world on Thursday. We've done a breakdown on what you can get, where you can get it and what it will cost you. Turn up your favorite 'Ye song and read on.
Yeezy Season 1 offers easily layered basics in neutral tones like camel, olive, chocolate brown, blue gray and cranberry. (A design philosophy that Mr. West continued to stick with in Season 2.) Built on West's go-to silhouette of an oversized top with a pair of tight bottoms, the collection includes billowy sweatshirts and military-style sweaters with worn edges for him and curve-hugging cotton separates for her. However, it's the outerwear that shines: MA-1 bomber jackets, camo-print parkas, puffy parkas with faux fur-trimmed hoods, cropped shearling jackets with extra-long sleeves and quilted nylon vests. There's also a selection of unisex items, such as crew neck sweaters, thermal tees and sweatpants. Check out the gallery below for a quick glimpse of the apparel.
West is also debuting a new footwear style, the Yeezy 950 boot. For men, it's a normal-looking duckboot, but for the ladies, there's a nod to Isabel Marant with a hidden platform heel. You can view the new shoes in the gallery below.
Nothing from Yeezy Season 1 costs less than $100. Want a Yeezy bra tank? That's $130. A cotton tank for guys? That'll cost you $180 — and if you're looking to purchase a pair of long-johns or a Yeezy cotton hoodie, be prepared to shell out as much as $545. The outerwear options include a $3,380 shearling bomber jacket and $4,550 long shearling coat. The footwear ranges in price from $250 to $625. There are accessories, too, like a leather backpack ($585) and a leather weekender ($1,040). Hype is not cheap, my friend.
After West's debut show in February, Barneys New York was one of the first retailers to announce that it would carry the collection at its 16 store locations and online. Adidas, too, will carry the collection online and at Adidas Originals flagship stores around the world, including Milan, Berlin, London, Seoul, Shanghai, Tokyo and the Adidas Style concept shop in Chicago. Globally, there will be more than 200 retail locations where you can snag yourself a Yeezy item.
