February 12, 2015

Kanye West is probably the most polarizing personality in popular culture at the moment. That Grammys ceremony said it all: the strongest musical performances of the night undermined by the assholery that would deny another artist his well-deserved moment in the spotlight. West's collaboration with Adidas launched tonight in a similar storm of conflicted emotion. "I'm here to crack the pavement," his fierce voice-over announced. "I want to create something better for you." But a show that started this willfully late in a schedule as dense as New York's spoke to a certain insensitivity. Was it perfectionism? Or was it simply the event-oriented consciousness of a musician who would scarcely stage a concert with the understanding that his audience has another performance to attend in an hour? That's an ongoing situation with West. Ardent fans will always find a reason to cut him slack. Genius has its reasons.

Still, transplant that genius into a context where its muscles are called on to flex in a more conventional way and different criteria come into play. When West sets himself up to be judged as a designer, he becomes a more familiar, more ordinary creature. It took 18 months to make this collection of sportswear happen. He staged it with the Italian performance artist Vanessa Beecroft, whose ability to strip back everything to its purest form was something he related to. There were certainly enough flesh-toned body stockings to convey the notion of the pared-back-to-nothingness that is a Beecroft trademark. And for the show, 50 models of all shapes and sizes advanced in the serried military ranks that are another Beecroft signature in time to the sonorous electronic chords that are a staple of West's latest sound.

That military aspect was key. West said the collection had come together in the shadow of the London riots, but they were a good few years ago, so maybe it was more an echo of those events that sparked the dystopian subtext of his collection. In a curious way, it did connect with the pessimistic tone of the men's collections we just saw in London—all of it, from the distressed knits to the backpacks to the conspicuous exhaustion of some of the models (do you think they were told to yawn?), suggesting a ragtag army on its rims. The mix of savagery and sweetness in West's recent musical output means it's tempting to assume there is some kind of internal conflict raging in him. That would certainly account for his provocative public persona. It was that suggestion of conflict that gave some spine to this collaboration with Adidas: a protective toughness, a body-conscious severity that made the clothes more than a simple accessory to the footwear that was the predictable focus of the whole event. Even so, it will be the Yeezy Boosts that snare the spotlight. Justin Bieber was backstage in a flash, laying claim to a pair.

Before the fluorescent lights pulsed for the first time, before the lone horn metronome led the model formation in lockstep, before the voice of Kanye declared, “I want people to feel like awesome is possible,” before a new song with Sia and Vic Mensa blasted through the speakers, and before young North started crying from it all, the inaugural show for Kanye West’s collaboration with Adidas, Yeezy Season 1, was already the talk of Fashion Week. The chatter surrounding West in the past week, about his new Yeezy Boosts, and his wife, and his baby, and his faux-bumrush on Beck, and his union of Paul McCartney and Rihanna, was so constant that he wouldn’t have had to put on much of a show at all and it still would have dominated discussion. But of course, he did put on a show, and somewhat surprisingly, the clothing was as memorable as the surrounding mayhem.

Anyone who had even casually followed Kanye, Kim, and North for the past year will have had a general idea of his desired aesthetic, but it was always going to be Kanye’s and Adidas’s ability to fulfill these desires that would be decisive. For its part, the German sportswear juggernaut has conceded identifiable branding almost entirely (no stripes, no logos, not even in the abstract, as Adidas has previously asked of its other high-profile collaborators) and apparently given Kanye the latitude that he could not find elsewhere. These pieces are militaristic staples, from body-conscious undergarments to camo M-65 jackets dropped to the knee to crop tops made from recycled Adidas socks. Hems were raw and frayed, tops billowy, bottoms either skintight to slide into newly unveiled suede stiletto boots or cinched and ready to be tucked into aforementioned Boosts. There were immaculate flak vests and officer sweaters that looked like they’ve actually taken shrapnel, and everything was said to be unisex.

It all created a sense that Kanye is outfitting some kind of ground force for the muted and dusty-hued future: The color palette is reminiscent of military uniforms past and present, while the nylon MA-2 bombers were presented on buzz-cut models, men and women, wearing brand new Adidas commando boots. With Kanye, anything is possible, and it was only 20 months ago that he released Yeezus, an album of similar provocation. All of this may be made moot when people pick and choose individual pieces, but on display, in rigid lines of expressionless youth, it was at the very least satisfyingly instigative for a line of sportswear.
