The highly anticipated collaboration clothing line (Yeezy Season 1) between Kanye West X Addidas is finally here. The Raf Simons & Rick Owens influenced line will finally launch on October 28th, though there is no complete list of confirmed retailers, we do have a short list of stores that will be selling selling Yeezy Season 1.
Some of the confirmed stores include – Barneys, Kith, Mr. Porter, Opening Ceremony, END, ZooFashions & Ssense. While some stores will also be launching footwear as well, others will not – check out the links above for online purchases.
Before we get into prices, Yeezy & Co. did disclose that they do acknowledge the triple (and quadruple) digit price tags, and in defense pushed the fact that the quality of the materials used is top-notch. Also claiming that the line will give some of the more luxury houses some fair competition – now lets take a look at prices.
A GQ issue priced some of the items as shown below.
Sweaters – $1,560
Hoodies – $545
Crewnecks – $495
Vests – $1,170
Sweatpants – $585
Camo Jacket – $2,210
Other sources claimed outerwear to range from $1,500 – $4,000, while accessories like backpacks and bags range from $500 – $700. As none of these prices are actual confirmed figures, it would be hard to anticipate what to expect on October 28th.
Needless to say, though Yeezy Season 1 is just now launching in stores, Ye isn’t waisting time with season 2. Luckily Youth of Paris was able to get a sneak peak into Kanye’s season factory – providing a first time ever look into the facility. On the other side of the facade a minimal “Season 2” stamp is the only indication that there is a building there at all, inside you’ll find racks filled with pieces from Season 2, showcasing a majority of the high quality line.
With Season 1 literally right around the corner, yeezy.supply is already broadcasting a behind-the-scenes look at Season 2 production. The mute presentation shows Kanye & Co working hard to produce yet another epic collection – with cameos from North West and Ye himself – check it out here. Yeezy Season 2 is set to launch Spring 2016.
