Major news out of NYC today: Kanye West, in a final confirmation of his long-rumoured collaboration with Adidas, will show at New York Fashion Week next week. Complex managed to hunt down a random Instagram post (since deleted) depicting an invite to the show, and it's legit folks.
West's partnership with Adidas has been rumoured for years, with no confirmation emerging from either the rapper's camp or the sportswear brand's. Complex's sources report that Kanye West x Adidas will show Thursday, Feb. 12 in NYC. And to make things even more interesting, the long-awaited new Yeezy sneakers will launch digitally via a new Adidas app called Confirmed, and will only be available to buy for people in the immediate vicinity of New York.
Kanye West's fashion week debut in Paris during the S/S 12 season was widely criticised. Will his second go-around be better? Stay tuned to find out!
