Shades of Melanin 

Tis the season to get into formation. Kanye kicked off NYFW with a historic take over of Roosevelt Island show casing his fourth season of Yeezy that exuded Black Lives Matter vibes, which has had a profound impact on the internet in less than 24 hours.

The aesthetics from Kaneys latest Yeezy season are so powerful they almost hurt the eyes. The display of voguesque models in full formation as they take over Roosevelt Island is nothing short of incredible. As is the norm with Yeezy we see a proud display of contemporary nude textures and hues that cater to a broader more diverse skin tone.This nonconforming and unorthodox arrangement of models is symbolic of a peaceful protest, very moving is the intense silence captured in the above photograph – this is fashion with a true societal message.Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian West were front row attendies as was expected, looking like ancient desert goddesses. I appreciate how they balance the nudes and bring in the paler more fairer shades of hues that make Yeezys range truly versatile. The 21st century innovator himself – Kimye are the perfect interracial couple that are at the forefront of aiming for a peaceful non-racist world. I adore their image and what they are striving to achieve through unconventional tactics such as fashion and music.
