Yeezy Season 2

Yeezy Season 2

Comments on social media on the Yeezy x Adidas (shoe) collection for Spring/Summer 2016, presented at New York Fashion week, are downright Nasty! The comments range from the “Emperor’s Clothes”, “Gap meets Good-Will Industries…?” to “Is Kanye about to outfit an army of Tusken Raiders?”, the latter is the most used visual comment, it’s meant to ridicule the fashion show. Par Accident these fashion-illiterates on the net made a fashionable equation; comparing the second Yeezy collection with the epic Star Wars movies isn’t such a bad thing, au contraire; we could have come up with that ourselves! But we didn’t.
And now we are stuck with the image of Jedi Masters and Tuscan Raiders…..So all we can say is that we, at Mimi Berlin, actually like the collection designed by Kanye West, the clothes and colors make the boys and girls look handsome.
Are we the only ones with a more positive reaction to this collection?

See those comments made on the net gathered HERE at uk.complex.com
and on news.com. Oh, also it was compared with the way homeless people look…..just like the First Yeezy Collection was.

Vanessa Beecroft

“Vanessa Beecroft‘s work addresses conceptual concerns as well as aesthetic concerns. Her performance art is often large scale and often involves live female models, often nude. At her performances, video recordings and photographs are made, to be exhibited as documentation of the performances, but also as separate works of art. She sets up a structure for the participants in her live events to create their own ephemeral composition. The performances are existential encounters between models and audience, their shame and their expectations. Each performance is made for a specific location and often references the political, historical, or social associations of the place where it is held. Beecroft’s work is deceptively simple in its execution, provoking questions around identity politics and voyeurism in the complex relationship between viewer, model and context.” (read more here)

Vanessa Beecroft has been warmly welcomed by the fashion industry since she showed  her performance art at the Guggenheim in 1998, and put the models/performers in Gucci bathing suits, she worked for Vogue, Wallpaper, Adidas

Fall 2015 Pret-a-Porter; Kanye West x Adidas Originals

Fall 2015 Pret-a-Porter; Kanye West x Adidas Originals

Adidas Originals teamed up with music producer/artist Kanye West. The (gossip/tabloid) world seems to trip over anything Mr West does (Remember the plain white “hiphop t-shirt” débacle on his collaboration collection with APC? And they still write about his outburst towards Taylor Swift at the Grammy Awards in 2009.) There will be a lot of fuzz again over the Kanye West x Adidas Originals collaboration for sure.
