If you have long been wanting to own a piece of Kanye's coveted clothing line, you might just be in luck. Kanye West will reportedly lower the prices for his Yeezy Season 3 collection. Maybe he finally realized that most of us can't afford a $700 sweatshirt? Thanks for looking out for us average Joes, Kanye.
The 38-year-old allegedly spilled the news to a TMZ cameraman who approached the rapper at LAX and let out his frustrations over the steep prices of Yeezy threads — something many of us can relate to. In response to the complaints, Kanye answered, "We're gonna get them lower, we're gonna get them lower," on camera, adding, "Next season." To me, this sounds like a verbal binding contract, so unless Kanye wants to let down all his fans, he will deliver on his promise — right??
It seems with prices ranging into the thousands that West aims for his clothing line to be super exclusive. Unless you're a famous celeb or a member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, it's nearly impossible to snag a piece of the fashion-y goodness, both due to exclusivity and sky-high prices. I mean, Yeezy Season 2 prices reached as high as $1,245, and while that might be chump change for some, for many that's a lot of money for a trench coat. Lower price points would provide the opportunity for all kinds of Yeezy fans to rock the cool styles.
In anticipation of potential cheaper prices, let's review some of the most wildly expensive pieces from Kanye's past collections.
