So far this summer, all talk of Kanye West's Yeezy collection for Adidas has centered on the shoes. GQ, however, posted a video today that highlights the entire collection, clothing and all. It's to go along with an interview with The Weeknd in GQ's September issue that features the musician wearing all Kanye West x Adidas.
In the shoot, which was styled by Kanye and can be seen here, The Weeknd wears Yeezy pieces like the camo jacket and the flight jacket. Those are two of GQ creative director Jim Moore's top picks from the collection. He also approves of the sweatpants ("Yeezy is in the detail, the hidden zippers. Look at the cuff!"), the military sweater ("It’s already a little bit gnawed at and that’s what gives it its nice texture."), and the chunky boots ("I’m calling these the blizzard boots. He’s completely modernized a classic silhouette and made it his own.")
Moore thinks the Adidas collection is completely a reflection of West's style. "You can buy Kanye’s closet. This is what a designer does. They use themselves as a muse and they make clothes that they want to put on their backs," Moore said in the video. Kanye West's Yeezy line will be sold at Barneys and Mr. Porter, and the rumor is that the clothing and bags will run for hundreds of dollars.
