Kanye West‘s collaboration with Adidas to create his clothing line has been one of the most misunderstood and polarizing collections for the fashion industry. Esteemed fashion journalist, Cathy Horyn lambasted his last collection, writing “The emperor has a new clothing line.”
West x Adidas is full of neutrals, oversized pieces, body suits, sweaters, stockings, and see-thru pieces. A fellow fashion insider texted me, “It looks live slave clothing.” Some deem his clothing impoverished, others deem it athleisure; however, everyone agrees that it is grossly expensive.

From $395 cropped sweatshirts (I want it) to a $2600 distressed sweaters, it’s not affordable for a significant portion of West’s fan base.
@kanyewest why yo clothes so expensive……I didn't even feel worthy enough to try on this sweater I wanted cuz it was like 2,000 😂😂😒
