2015 has been the year Kanye West set out to prove every single one of his haters and doubters wrong, and the primary method of doing so was he believes to be his next artistic calling: fashion design. In February during New York Fashion Week's fall 2015 shows, Yeezy debuted his collection with Adidas: Yeezy Season 1.
As previously reported by Racked's Shopping and Style Editor, Nicola Fumo, Kanye's debut collection was expected to drop sometime during October. An Adidas representative, however, had previously confirmed to Complex Magazine in September that the official release date was on October 29th.
Regardless, select pieces from the hotly anticipated collection went on sale at Italian retailer G&B Negozi last night. Pieces on sale included men's ripped sweatshirt with a hefty price tag of $1,836, and a backpack at $550. Unfortunately the entire collection has now sold out, and lucky buyers who got in early will get to stunt their new wears a whole five days before the official release.
