West is showing his new Yeezy Season 2 collection today—the first line that adidas reportedly isn't involved with—at New York Fashion Week at the Skylight Modern in Manhattan.

There has been few details about the show or collection. So far, we know that the show will feature a performance by artist Vanessa Beecroft, who West collaborated with for his debut adidas Yeezy Season 1 NYFW show last year. And, as Cool Teen Luka Sabbat told Complex last month, there line will include "so much more clothes" and "way more shoes" than Yeezy Season 1, and that there's "not much adidas branding on most" of the apparel. Beyond that, we've only seen new colorways of both the Yeezy Boost 350 and 750, and a pair of women's shoes that Kim Kardashian previewed.

Our Complex style crew was lucky enough to get the invites printed on camo long sleeve shirts and witness all that is Yeezy Season 2. Stay tuned here for our live updates—you don't want to miss anything.

He also debuted new colorways (white, off white, tan, olive, chocolate, black) of the Yeezy 950 boots.  

12:54 p.m. Kanye just walked out to take a bow while playing a new song. 

1:59 p.m.  The rumor was that apparel from Yeezy Season 2 would be produced independent of adidas, and this tweet from the brand at least confirms that this collection isn't branded as a collaboration with adidas Originals. 

Today adidas long term partner @kanyewest presented a collection as a designer in his own right. Congrats, Mr. West! pic.twitter.com/MRPM7vMlul
