Kanye West Skips Runway Show, Debuts Yeezy Season 6 On Kim Kardashian Instead


Who needs a fashion show when you have Kim in Calabasas?

Skipping a traditional runway show at New York Fashion Week, Kanye West instead opted for a fresh way to debut his Yeezy Season 6 collection: on paparazzi shots of Kim Kardashian West.

The rapper/designer enlisted his wife to showcase his latest designs, which she shared on Twitter and Instagram. According to Kim, the looks were all styled by BAZAAR’s global fashion director (and good friend to Kimye), Carine Roitfeld.

Sticking with West’s signature neutral color palette, the new pieces range from hues of brown, black and gray to a pretty new shade of dusty blue. While some pieces are similar to those in past Yeezy collections (the standard spandex shorts and minimalist bra tops), Season 6 introduces some fresh West designs like high-waisted wide-leg pants, a trench coat and a shearling-lined jacket.

Kim unveiled each look one by one, proving there’s a Yeezy outfit for every occasion like a “McDonald’s run Yeezy,” which consists of an oversized chocolate brown jacket and no pants:

And “Smoothie run Yeezy,” which obviously includes a pale blue bra top, matching high-waisted sweatpants and nude sock boots. If you’re wearing anything else while drinking a smoothie, you’re doing it all wrong.

Similar to “Smoothie run Yeezy” is “Delorian ride Yeezy,” a look in which one emerges from the Back to The Future car. (Kim spelled DeLorean wrong, but hey no runway show is perfect).

Then there’s “Coffee Run Yeezy,” a cozy ensemble that debuts some new Yeezy footwear.

“Office Run Yeezy,” (not for those with a standard 9-to-5):

“Late Night Run Yeezy”:

“Errands run Yeezy,” (not to be confused with the late night run, the coffee run, or the office run Yeezy):

“FedEx run Yeezy,” which includes a two-tone collared jacket:

“Meetings Yeezy,” (unless your name rhymes with Bim Bardashian Best, however, you probably can’t get away with wearing denim cutoffs to a meeting):

A very practical, “Getting gas Yeezy,” look:

A super sexy “Date night Yeezy” look:

“Phone calls Yeezy”:

“Business meetings Yeezy,” (again: I do not recommend wearing a bandeau to a business meeting unless you are part of the Kardashian family):

“Chill Yeezy”:

“Calabasas Yeezy,” which features a very good hooded and shearling-lined jacket:

“Storage unit run Yeezy,” which, wow, if you don’t have a storage unit run outfit in your closet, what are you even doing with your life?

And my personal favorite, “Kit Kat run Yeezy,” which includes a very good chocolate trench coat that I would love to wear on a Kit Kat run.

Neither Kim nor Kanye has announced when Yeezy Season 6 will be available to shop, but it looks like it may be one of West’s strongest collections yet. This is the first collection that West hasn’t unveiled at New York Fashion Week. Yeezy Season 5 was the designer’s last collection, which he debuted in February 2017 at NYFW.
