Kanye West scales things back for Yeezy Season 5 show

Would he show at NYFW? Wouldn’t he show at NYFW?

Things have been a bit up in the air for Kanye West and his Yeezy Season 5 collection for quite a while now.

At one point it was almost confirmed that the collection and show would go ahead, as planned, while at other times it was looking like he would give it a miss for one season to focus on his personal health instead.

But his appearance at New York Fashion Week next moth has officially been confirmed, so good news for all Kanye fans!

It looks like he is scaling things back a bit though, as the show will take place in a more traditional location this time around: the fashion-week-friendly Pier 59 studios, to be exact!

We don’t think anyone can forget last season’s bus trip to Roosevelt Island, or the Yeezy Season 3 spectacle at Madison Square Garden.

We think it’ll be nice to see what a more toned down show will look like, and whether the collection will speak for itself without all the fancy gimmicks.

Yeezy Season 5, in partnership with Adidas, will show on Wednesday February 15 at 5pm.

Who’s excited?
