It's already time to start thinking about Yeezy Season 4, even though we were just introduced to Season 3. Kanye West tweeted a cryptic hint about Yeezy Season 4 and he's actually been doing that a lot lately. First, he tweeted that Yeezy Season 4 would be a children's line, which may have been West-in-jest. West collaborated with Balmain's Olivier Rousteing on the custom Kardashian outfits at his Yeezy Season 3 NYFW show, leading me to wonder if these two creative minds would link up yet again for Season 4. Next, he tweeted about his attendance at a materials event in Paris, sharing a snap of his badge. Now, he has revealed his possible inspo for Season 4. What does it mean?
Well, that's anyone's guess, since the mind of 'Ye cannot be read or easily understood. His thinking is not linear nor is it logical. It's just... Kanye. But that doesn't mean we can't speculate. Because that's fun.
That said, the rapper and designer tweeted a photo of a bird, seated on a branch and looking off to the side. It was a from the back shot so you got a view of this avian profile.
See the snap below.
My instant reaction was that Season 4 would be very spring-like and represent a rebirth. Then I realized I may be overthinking it, without even trying to consider the source of the photo itself for a clue.
Maybe those are the simply the colors or the patterns he is thinking of. He may have seen that photo and been smacked with inspiration. You know, this color palette isn't too different from Seasons 1, 2, and 3...
Or it could be that Season 4 is indeed going to be a line of clothes for kids and he wants to incorporate an avian theme. Kids like birds, right? Right.
You know, this guessing game is starting to feel futile. The tweet could mean anything and West is prone to changing his mind. Remember, The Life of Pablo had like four titles before he settled on that one. So let's not spend too, too much time dissecting this photo or looking for meaning in this clue because West himself has probably moved on.
Or maybe he will surprise us all and commit to a theme such as this. He always keeps us guessing.
