So and So,
Each generation champions a superstar, so consistently relevant that they come to accompany that generation through its evolution, being a part of and ultimately shaping its identity. Such past icons have been the likes of Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon, or Michael Jackson. For this generation, Generation Y, Kanye West is not only its greatest spectacle, but in some senses, a spiritual figure.
We are here to spread a doctrine. Well, a pseudo-doctrine. We ask you to use your pulpit for Good.
A few months ago, my brothers and I embarked on a creative journey that began with a “What If?”:
After the official unveiling of YEEZY Season 1 and the multiple releases of the adidas Yeezy Boost, Kanye and the three stripes are just getting started. It was revealed today that two more Kanye helmed silhouettes will arrive in the near future, with the Yeezy Boost Low known officially as the adidas Yeezy 350 Boost will be arriving at stores for a very affordable $210 sooner rather than later. If you noticed on the runway at the Yeezy Season 1 unveiling, some models were even championing a bulky duckboot – this silhouette will also be releasing under the monicker of the adidas Yeezy Duck Boot, but it will cost a hefty $500 USD. This all comes as good news for those of you waiting to get your hands on adidas Yeezy sneaker, especially considering the price point of the lowtops. Stay tuned for announcements regarding these upcoming adidas Yeezy models.
Yeezy season continues. After being spotted at every show from Balmain to Dior, Kanye West will close out Paris Fashion Week. The rap god has partnered with Louis Vuitton for a series of concerts at the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
Yeezy will perform exclusive shows nightly in the auditorium from Saturday, March 7 through Tuesday, March 10 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Additionally, there will be a screening of a film directed by Steve McQueen (could it be the “All Day” video?) and an exhibition of photos by Jackie Nickerson. Tickets are on sale at $109 apiece, with all proceeds going to charity.
Madonna think Kanye West should kindly take a seat. Speaking to Rolling Stone, the singer said that she felt Kanye West’s awards show outbursts have been misguided, likening the search for justice at the Grammys to “trying to find a needle in a haystack.” She advised West to “Just go and have fun,” adding that she believes the rapper and producer takes things “too seriously.” West, who co-produced several tracks on Madonna’s next album, Rebel Heart, was recently in the news for his faux-interruption of Beck’s acceptance speech at the Grammys, where he was the recipient of the Best New Album trophy for his Morning Phase. Kanye feigned a repeat of the incident at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech, taking the microphone out of the singer’s hand in the process. In both cases, he was urging the awards committees to give the title to work of Beyonce’s.
Kanye’s at it again. After surprising customers at the adidas Performance store in SoHo during the February 14th release, Kanye West showed up at the adidas Originals store in London to not only hand-deliver the Yeezy Boost shoes, but to autograph pairs for the eager buyers. Gotta hand it to ‘Ye, who has been putting in work to build excitement not only around the adidas Yeezy, but for the brand as a whole! Did you cop the new Yeezy sneakers yet?
