Kanye West Debuts Yezzy Season 4 at New York Fashion Week 2016


For Yeezy Season 4, Kanye provided shuttle busses for showgoers to travel from Midtown Manhattan to Roosevelt Island, the spot in the East River where he put on his fashion presentation today. He was coming off two sold-out concerts at Madison Square Garden, where the sheer brilliance of its presentation was in its minimalism—a Close Encounters-style suspended platform that soared above the crowd and shone spotlights on the moshing kids getting their lives beneath.

(Underneath the stage, the concert became about the wild dancing kids, and not so much about Yeezy at all.)
