Guests at Balenciaga’s mud-filled Paris show Line up on the field to recognize that in seconds. Stepping down the brand’s mud-filled runway at the Parc des Expositions was Ye, who opened a show of individualism, dressed in leather and game faces to rival any model.
With his hat pulled down and his hood raised, the enigmatic rapper and Demna collaborator – you probably know He’s Kanye West, but now it’s just Ye — in his typical paparazzi avoidance mode. Wearing an all-black motocross and military uniform, he represents the brand’s new mission to move away from the labels that the industry loves to use.
What’s with the dirt that stained Ye’s normcore boots? (He’s not wearing crystal flip-flops, thank goodness!) This set is a metaphor for digging for truth and down-to-earth. “Let’s make everyone whoever is, and have sex instead of war,” Demner said. Well, fit West, who just expanded the olive brand to Kardashian-Jenners by changing his Instagram profile picture to the face of family matriarch and mom Chris.
