Earlier this week Kanye West had his second showing at New York Fashion Week and the results were mixed.

While industry elites seemed to enjoy the show, many the regular folk on social media thought Yeezy Season 2 looked like something out of an apocalyptic film.

Rapper turned actor Ice-T took things a step further, saying Ye’s line looked it was straight off the plantation.

Although he mistakenly tweeted a picture of Yeezy Season 1, Ice-T might not be too far off.

During the show, a drill sergeant commanded each wave of models to the stage, starting with the “light” group, which included blond-haired models with pale-colored clothing. As the show progressed, so did the models’ outfits and skin tones, until the “dark” group took the stage last.

Kanye’s wife and head cheerleader, Kim Kardashian-West, tweeted out looks from the show using the descriptors “light,” “medium,” and “dark.”

After the show, many wondered if the groupings were meant to make a statement about race and inequality in America, but according to Kanye, it was a purely aesthetic choice.

“It’s just a painting, just using clothing as a canvas of proportion and color,” he told Vogue when asked about the casting.

What do you think?

    The brand Demobaza does, and has been doing, it way waaaaay better. They make post-apocalyptic looking clothes that are actually aesthetically pleasing, much more affordable AND look like quality garments. Not this Yeezy trash.

    If you want that kind of look then check them out, you’ll look 10x better and save a few bucks

    Probably. But at this point I really don’t even care. That entire show looked like a “High Couture” Concentration Camp victims. It really puts me off. Some of the pieces work individually but all together I get an eery vibe.

    There isn’t any fashion here. All I see are clothes. Clothes without fashion.

  • CayaK

    I don’t like the clothes. No need to buzz over the show.
