Since the debut of the adidas x Kanye West "Yeezy Season 1" collection during New York Fashion Week, there has been speculation as to how much the pieces would cost. Kanye has preached in recent interviews that clothing prices should be more affordable—referencing H&M and Zara several times—because he says fashion shouldn't be exclusive. But he also admitted that because this is his first collection with adidas, he couldn't get the price points that he wanted due to material costs and other things that are out of his control. It's understandable but still frustrating for fans who learned about the $350 price tag of the Yeezy 750 Boosts.
There is currently still no release date for the "Yeezy Season 1" collection, but Highsnobiety is reporting what they call "early pricing information," though they've declined to reveal their source and have only said that the info is "official." We've reached out to adidas for confirmation.
That said, we may finally find out when the collection is hitting shelves because shops, including Soto Berlin, are currently putting in their orders.
If the prices—for everything from the Yeezy Boost Low to knitted sweaters—are legitimate, fans hoping to cop at price points similar to collections at H&M or Zara will be sorely disappointed.
