On Feb. 15 Kanye West surprisingly debuted his highly anticipated Yeezy Season 5 clothing line at Pier 59 in New York City. Showcasing the new line of clothing and footwear, Kanye had the city and the fashion industry in awe regarding not only the collection but its presentation as well.
“The collection didn’t feel startling or new but it did feel like West was not striving for his usual headline making showmanship, but rather exploring ideas about America, escape, and celebrity,” The Cut‘s  Veronique Hyland wrote.  Even Glamour‘s Noah Silverstein responded similarly, and called the collection “more thoughtful, cohesive, and, for the first time, original.” The Yeezy season 5 presentation couldn’t have lasted no more than 15 minutes and the fashion community clearly appreciated that most of all. Editor and chief of Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour also gave her seal of approval to the new line. “I liked it a lot. I thought his use of the screens was fascinating and it started on time. A little bit more focus than sometimes we’ve seen from him.”

The Yeezy Season 5 line displayed similar Season 4 styles while opting to include new colorways. Kanye added a dark shade blue to this collection, while incorporating a few of his favorite hues from his past releases like camo, black and denim. The collection has a verity of long-extensive fur coats, embroidered jackets, track jackets, sheer jackets, extended crew neck sweaters, hoodies, sweat pants, thigh-high boots, running sneakers, bags and much more. Majority of these looks where posted on his DONA twitter account @DondaCreate.


The date hasn’t been officially released yet for Kanye’s Yeezy Season 5 collection to drop. However, it’s clear that there won’t be any antics, outburst or stunts pulled in regards to the new collection or new music. Even though the fashion world would salute this basic approach I can’t help but feel the slightest bit of disappointment in the surprisingly unsurprising Season 5 presentation. Regardless of the reported fail that fashion critics called Yeezy Season 4 in regards to the Madison Square Garden presentation I a least expected something new or innovative coming from Yeezy himself.
I guess it’s safe to say that Kanye West is playing it safe for the Yeezy Season 5 collection this year.
