Kanye West's lusciously produced zine for his YEEZY fashion creations
Kanye West: YEEZY Season 3–4 Zine showcases the third and fourth collections of Kanye West’s YEEZY footwear, apparel and accessories line, both presented in 2016. Dark, atmospheric photographs by Jackie Nickerson make up a purely visual work, devoid of any text. YEEZY Season 3–4 Zine is emphatically not a lookbook; the clothes are photographed in lush, tactile close-ups, but bodies receive the same treatment. Some of West’s trusted collaborators and muses make appearances, including Teyana Taylor, Playboi Carti, Luka Sabbat and Amina Blue.
YEEZY Season 3–4 Zine is an incredible object, printed in an oversized format on rough, uncoated Kamiko paper with intensely black inks. It is the third installment of YEEZY’s limited-edition season zines, all collaborations between West and Nickerson.
