Yeezy Season 2 is out of this world
Kanye West debuted his highly anticipated Yeezy Season 2 ready-to-wear collection (and brand new song) with a star-studded front row including Anna Wintour, Drake, and Seth Meyers. Speaking of stars, many internet users compared Ye’s pieces to the wardrobes of various Star Wars characters. All criticisms aside, Mr. West did an excellent job creating hype online by broadcasting live streams of the collection in select theaters worldwide.
