Yeezy’s Calabasas collection with Adidas is finally here. The line is exclusive to Yeezy Supply, and Hypebeasts were prepared early this morning to grab pieces from the collection.
Photos of the collection have surfaced online for a few months now, hinting at the release of a Calabasas collection. The line embodies West’s current chic streetwear vibe, which alludes to the casual and trendy “Calabasas” aesthetic. The collection also resembles Kim Kardashian West’s current everyday looks. It’s evident that the couple and their own personal taste inspired the pieces in the collection.
According to New York Magazine, “West announced the collection with a series of Dan Regan-shot images that exhibit the same soft-focus aesthetic his wife, Kim Kardashian West, has adopted since her post-robbery return to social media”.
Many of the collection’s pieces for the shoot were also styled by ASAP Nast. West has also created a Calabasas zine, which included a collaboration with West’s The Life of Pablo tour merchandise collaborator, Cali Thornhill DeWitt. The zine comes along with each customer’s purchase.
Kanye West’s Calabasas collection has created captured the artist’s current stage in life. His world has been shaken up, with two children and a wife who has only recently been affected by a traumatic event. Calabasas is Yeezy’s new safe haven. His Calabasas collection is an extension of this realization and a connection with the current appeal and aesthetic in fashion. West seems to continue to take streetwear to a whole new level.
