Kanye West to Debut Yeezy Season 5 During New York Fashion Week
By Alex Ungerman
Kanye West is going back to basics for Yeezy Season 5.
The Life of Pablo rapper is set to debut the fifth iteration of his popular Yeezy line at New York Fashion Week on Feb. 15, opting this time for the Pier 59 Studios -- a commonly used NYFW spot -- as opposed to Madison Square Garden and Roosevelt Island, where seasons 3 and 4 respectively debuted, according to Fashionista.
The change of venue may make the event logistically easier to pull off, after Yeezy Season 4 featured plenty of fashion slaying... but also some problems with the hot New York weather, and broken shoes.
Yeezy Season 5 also marks the 39-year-old rapper's first major undertaking since canceling his remaining Saint Pablo Tour dates last year and subsequently being hospitalized, after his wife, Kim Kardashian West, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris a few months prior.
