What Went Down at Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 Show as Seen on Social Media
Low-key Kanye West? You better believe it.
The rapper debuted his Yeezy Season 5 collection today at Pier 59 Studios in the Big Apple as part of New York Fashion Week, and he took a much more relaxed approach to the show than in times past. This afternoon's event was a far cry from the Roosevelt Island and Madison Square Garden spectacles of previous years, and it was over almost as quickly as it started.
Here's everything that went down as seen through social media:
The show kicked off with real-time 360-degree videos of male and female models wearing all denim and camouflage outfits—reminiscent of older Yeezy designs—that were projected onto a screen as a remix of J. Holiday's "Bed" (performed by The Dream) played in the background. A model dressed in a sherpa-lined jean jacket, baggy denim pants, and brown boots eventually hit the runway.

The collection included an homage to the Kardashian's hometown of Calabasas, Calif., as well as other Los Angeles-area cities including Lost Hills and Agoura. Thigh-high boots, non-traditional Yeezy sneakers, and a variety of dark colors were used throughout the lineup.
The entire presentation only lasted for about fifteen minutes, and West didn't partake in the customary walking of the runway to signal the finale. Instead, his wife's departure from her seat marked the end of the show.
Is this the beginning of a whole new Kanye West? Only time will tell.
