OUTFIT OF THE DAY
Outfit of the day #925
By Kasia Hastings, 4 September 2016
Here’s Kanye West debuting some new Saint Pablo merch, a new pair of Yeezy 350s and a new way of wearing basketball shorts, all in one outfit. What a guy.
It’s been a bumper week of excellent looks from the style maestro, including a particularly great tribute to Tupac Shakur, but West seemingly saved the best till last, delivering three fresh Kanye cuts in a single outing. Think the first round of Pablo tees are passé? Tired of waiting for new Yeezys? Bored of your basketball shorts? You’re in luck, because this ensemble has it all.
The rapper gets things off to a strong start with a black long-sleeved tee from the latest drop of his tour merch. Some good arm detailing gives Kanye’s version of a band tee a nice Vetements vibe. Next up: we can’t be sure, but West may be breaking new style ground here in his dedication to an all-black aesthetic. With only a pair of red Just Don shorts to hand, he does the only thing he can and turns the shorts inside out – solid move. Finally, he layers a pair of black sports tights underneath to keep things streamlined, adds black adidas socks and the pièce de résistance – a new pair of Yeezy Boost 350 2.0s in black and red.
