Price of the "yeezy season1" has been revealed. What does /fa/ think ?
>knitwear will begin at €800 and wind up in the neighborhood of €1,500
>outerwear will start at around €1,600 and reach a staggering €3,500.
>underlining these steep prices, however, is absolutely top-notch quality that will give luxury houses a run for their money
Who remembers Kanye saying he wants everyone to be able to buy his products?
Kanye is a fucking joke, a complete hack, he has no place in the fashion industry.
I don't show interest nor plan to buy anything made by a nigger whatsoever.
I don't support his music, i don't support his clothes. He has no place in the fashion industry, neither are the clowns buying his stuff.
Why would anyone drop that much money on Ye? At that price point, I can shop for an actual good quality designer that will look better, and have a better level of craftsmanship.
This stuff is literally marketed to richboi Asians because no one else is dumb enough to drop money on this shit.
I can only see rich brown people buy his products, and that's a small market.
If you count the gay brazilian millionaires and 50 years old african-american hip hop producers, that's still a niche market.
lmao exactly. Kanye is a joke in the fashion industry.
Rip off other designers, ASPIRE to be fucking Zara-lite, still price your junk clothes at hundreds for fucking knock off hoodies with holes in them.
Cmon man, cmon...
yeezy is trying to hard, idk why he did his line with adidas except to cut costs. if he truly wanted to be recognized in the fashion scene couldn't he start an own label. he sure has money to invest i guess.
>daily reminder that he's tried not once, but twice before to be "high-end designer"
>daily reminder he failed twice
This will fail too.
800 euro for a knit isn't what is necessarily bad, it's just if its 800 euro, I'm going to buy something from a high fashion brand, and not from a made in china adidas colab
Putting aside whether Kanye or not is a bag of dicks, the adidas name and quality that comes with it doesn't demand that price point
But for knits and jackets... we've only had pricey kicks before and that's palatable but adidas isn't known for their quality outerwear etc. I think it will sell well because there are a large number of cashed up consumers who aren't necessarily there for the quality but the recognition/hype. It's sad
>being cucked by a black manlet
Damn, I really wanted one of those knits. And some of the jackets were kinda cool
>At that price point, I can shop for an actual good quality designer that will look better, and have a better level of craftsmanship.
Sounds exactly like something that would be said in a Windows vs Apple debate. It's simply a status symbol.
If you seriously think that Kanye has no say whatsoever how the collections is priced as the designer then you need your head checked.
In the event that Adidas actually doesn't alllow him to say jack shit about the pricing then his previous critiscism against Nike for constraining him when he was working with them is actually hilarious since he was singing Adidas praises for the freedom, and then it turns out he doesn't even have a say in pricing.
Ridiculous how he talks like he want to make pricing on zara levels and they end up way up there with most expensive designers, for what's essentially a collection of knockoffs.
This is Margiela in '98. Can anyone source any other images from the runway?
It looks incredible similar. I'm ok with Kanye being derivative in this sense, but when he hypocritically goes against his ethos and charges more than the original work that he is inspired by it's just absurd.
"You guys know my influences. I’ve got four influences and it’s written all over the face, you know the combination. Just as much as Drake is influenced by Kanye West, you know my influences. You see Raf Simons right there, you see Helmut, you see Margiela, you see Vanessa [Beecroft], you see Katharine Hamnett. It’s blatantly right there. I’m not going to try and act like I was influenced by a dog walking down the street that broke its ankle that I had a heartfelt discussion with. I had a heartfelt discussion with all of these Helmut Lang images that I stared at for so many years. I had a heartfelt discussion with my Tumblr." - http://www.style.com/trends/fashion/2015/kanye-west-adidas-originals-interview
it's blatantly and unabashedly helmut
aha dumb fag
it's obviously Helmut inspired u fag, look at the other outerwear
oh that's right ur FUCKEN delusional and the only thing u know about fashion is common projects Achille lows
pgiafuck you need to calm down
you need to realize that this board is mostly composed of underrage or people under 20, or even worse : asians
for me asians, not as creators, but as clothes wearers, are the cancer killing fashion, they have no taste whatsoever and usually dress with the latest meme and hype clothes, or straight out copy niggers, not to mention they're manlets 99 % of the time
which is useless because it's not the clothes that makes the man shine, it's the man inside the clothes
but still i'm going places, what i truely don't understand is why pasty white lanklets would buy clothes made by a nigger, which not only look atrocious, but are extremely overpriced
did you really spend the time to type this out?
are you just mad that some black guy raped you when you were 12 and you never recovered?
what's with the long face haha
(get it? your face is freakishly long lol)
go and sell some dumb shit to asians so you can keep paying your mom th 200$ rent she charges for the back of the trailer
you should listen to the shit he said about arcitecture
he demeans any artistic endevour he sets his hands on
also, while it is inspired my it, it gives off a completely different vibe
I would never go out of my way to Google an interview with Kanye west
and what the hell r u goin on about,
inspired, copied, poorly executed whatever, he still had helmut Lang in his head and u can tell from the outerwear that it was HL inspired and he even said it himself so yehhhhhn stop
>the kanye bp vest is a 1:1 copy of this helmut iteration
retarded argument and you're obviously backpedaling in your more recent posts. obviously there's countless names that have taken influence from helmut in the last decade, too many to feasibly list in this post. obviously it's not a surprise that a designer like kris van assche might have elements of helmut lang in one of his shows such as a reinterpretation of an iconic piece such as the ballistic vest, re-imagined in his own design vocabulary within the context of one of his collections. the issue is that the kanye pieces aren't re-imaginations, reinterpretations or subversions, it's as if he sketched archival pieces from memory (with help from hours of heartfelt conversation with his tumblr dash) and handed the scribbles to his design team with adidas. he says himself he's not a designer.
Kanye even said so himself that he was directly influenced by Helmut Lang.
You just lack the knowledge, the points of reference, the taste, the awareness of fashion and its flow of visual language over time, to understand this
"Just a vest"? Sure, but Helmut was the first to bring it into and popularize it in the context of high fashion. You're only able to be SEEING it as "Just a vest" EXACTLY because of Helmut's introduction of the piece / look, and its advancement into mainstream aesthetics that followed.
You really, really have no business trying to argue anything related to fashion here. Know yourself, know your place. Despite overwhelming evidence against your "claims", all you do is deny concrete facts and resort to elementary modes of thought like strawmanning.
Be honest, how old are you? Like seriously, I'm actually asking you because I'm curious. It genuinely disturbs me that I share this board with people this lacking in cognitive abilities.
Kanye definitely lied. And definitely doesn't has pricing control. Season 1is for rich fuccbois to forever hold as a grail. Season 2 might honestly be different price wise. That being said im probably gonna just cop the the 750 and 350 boost and some of the other shit if i find a decent replica. Yeezy honestly just made a bunch of Chinese niggas rich this season
ian connors did this really well
5*10 did it for me and you could see it nicely the set was lit well if youre in a theatre screening but not so greaat inside
end track binded it together and i felt like kanye represented himself as the sticky red wax on toppa velvet letter and it was just perfecyt.
the way the model walked and slouched and the attitude displayed was brilliant
the diversity was a good aspect of this
the thing why plenty of designer hate comes to this is that kanye already has the pre packed yeezy fanclub. guaranteeing buys . guaranteeing a successful go with anything cause he has fans
bubububububu kva desgins for dior homme anon!!! it's not like that brand has a history of hiring hacks as it's creative designer r-right????
i like kanye and i wish i could be here for him but i would never buy this stuff. it's not good looking, it's overpriced, but worst of all it's largely derivative; rather than working on his own aesthetic he's really just kind of ripping on the feel of established brands. the guy just isn't a fashion designer, and he doesn't know how to make clothes; why would i ever pass up a rick owens garment, for example, which will make me look better, use more luxurious materials, and use more sophisticated construction to flatter my body and keep me comfortable, in favor of some nylon vest made by a rapper and a shoe company?
kanye has no say in the retail pricing
the production price is all on him
he chose the fabrics as the designer
and i'm sure as hell he chose the factories
the retail price is all corporate adidas
only the boosts have dropped thus far, pricing for the clothing has only just been released. presumably it falls under outerwear, so you're looking at a $2000 nylon vest.
You really think if he said to them, "yo, imma take my name and my talent elsewhere unless we can agree on on some prices" they'd just be like, "okay, seeya?" He's got leverage if he wants to use it.
originally helmut lang, 1998 i think. various iterations were produced up until he retired. you'll still find them being sold on marketplaces or in consignment. not sure anything quite like it has ever been reproduced (until now i guess) but you'll see things like tactical vests/chest rigs returning virtually every season from various designers. this one is from rick owens fw14 moody.
the truth is in the middle of what all of you guys are saying. i legit believe that kanye wanted lower price points, but do you really think adidas signed him cuz they believed in his talent? they saw those resale prices and want high profit margins. my guess is they pitched a diffusion line to him (maybe with his own namesake stores selling both lines) in the future if this stuff sells. if it does theres no way theyll just throw away profits and start selling at lower prices
