Viewers watching Kanye West's controversially-cast YEEZY Season 4 show via TIDAL stream probably got the sweeter deal.

The show was scheduled to start at 3 p.m. but actually began much later than even the typically expected fashion week delays.

A little waiting likely wouldn't have caused any grievance had West not chosen an open space on New York's Roosevelt Island to reveal his latest wares, under the sweltering heat of midday sun, to boot.

Nevertheless, editors and writers who had previously boarded buses that shuttled them to the show's "secret" location hunkered down in the shade of small trees that were few and far between.

West's celebrity friends including G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T; neophyte label signee, Desiigner; and rapper 2 Chainz, were also on hand, sweating just as profusely as the plebeian crowd.

Luckily, the collection didn't challenge viewers' heat-fried brains too much, there was continuity if little else. Per usual, West returned the bodysuit-meets-oversized silhouette look. Muted hues also made a reappearance, although a few white, navy and black shades - all walked by models with fair or deep skin tones to match - made the final cut.

West fell back on old habits where shoes were concerned, too. Models struggled to strut the triangular runway in see-through plastic thigh boots that steamed up with the heat of the day and the effort of their walking labor. Add to that the shearling and leather jackets some of the less lucky models sported and it was truly a recipe for heatstroke.

On another note, Teyana Taylor, who became everyone's new #bodygoals after starring in West's steamy "Fade" video, was among the show's many participants. Of course her abs were as defined as ever, and the rest of her was too.
