With YEEZY Season 1 approaching, we took it upon ourselves to get up close and personal with Kanye West's first full venture into men's clothing. Memes and sniping comments have come thick and fast for the collection which, as has been widely reported, features a ton of heavily-distressed pieces infused with a washed, muted palette. What's often overlooked from the conversation is the expert craftsmanship that has gone into the clothing - produced in Europe by a high-end Parisian house, we're told.
With that in mind, we pulled a few strings and got an advance look at the collection - which is set to hit high fashion retailers worldwide in the coming weeks. Enjoy the closeup shots above and for more YEEZY Season action, have a look at the remarkable similarities COS's latest line bears to the forthcoming collection.
