If there's one show guaranteed to get major hype at New York Fashion Week, it's Yeezy (and Alexander Wang, of course). So when Kanye West showed his Yeezy Season 5 collection at Pier 59 on Wednesday, the world was quick to pay attention, especially because of the rumor that Drake and West were collaborating for Yeezy Season 5.
Unfortunately, a Yeezy x Drake collab did not come to fruition, but the Yeezy Season 5 show was still worth talking about. Unlike last season's show, where models were forced to stand in the crazy New York heat and attendees were forced to wait over an hour for the show to start, Yeezy Season 5 debuted with very little drama at all.
Models walked the (indoor) runway in Calabasas-inspired pieces, from fur to denim, and of course, lots of sportswear while a remix to "Bed" by J. Holiday was sung by The-Dream played on repeat. Seems like a very Kanye thing to do.
West has been keeping a very low profile ever since his hospitalization in Nov. 2016, so much so that he didn't even appear at the end of the show, nor were his children North and Saint in attendance. Kim Kardashian did make an appearance at Yeezy Season 5, and arguably stole the show in a see through purple turtleneck and joggers.
Here are some of the best photos from Yeezy Season 5.

Calabasas was the theme of Yeezy Season 5, so naturally a majority of sweatshirts had Calabasas printed on it.
