Kanye West’s YEEZY SEASON 5 presentation overshadowed all the other NYFW shows that were going on today. Anticipation was at maximum levels since there weren’t many hints about what was supposed to go down. Additionally, invites were sent last minute, but the public already knew that the show would take place at NYC’s Pier 59 and start at 3 p.m. The difference as told by invited guests was that ‘Ye actually started somewhat on time — the big reveal began at 3:25 p.m.
HYPEBEAST was in attendance and we did a full livestream of the showcase on Facebook, which you can watch here (there was no TIDAL livestream this time around). Additionally, there was a strictly no professional photography policy at the event during the show, but guests were still allowed to use their phone for social media purposes. Photography was limited to just the outside areas of the space and we were able to do some streetsnap coverage, which you can watch out for in the following days.
