For weeks on end, fashion devotees have been clamoring over what Kanye West would pull out for his New York Fashion Week presentation with Adidas, Kanye West Yeezy Season 2. The wait was over on Wednesday (September 16), as he unveiled his latest military-inspired designs at Skylight Modern in New York City. In true Yeezy fashion, it was epic in proportion, with movie theaters around the world screening the show live for his loyal fans and a star-studded front row worthy of every front page.

And Don’t worry about the recent bashing this line also received for looking like “future slave gear” and “Starwars”.

Meanwhile, Cathy Horyn had zero patience with West’s latest collection. In her previous review of his first NYFW collection, Horyn claimed the fashion world was too infatuated with Kanye, and that a Stockholm Syndrome-like effect was preventing her peers from fairly reviewing his show—and giving him the criticism he deserved.

This time around, she spared him absolutely no mercy, writing a total takedown that didn’t just slam Kanye—but put the rest of the fashion world on blast.

“This second round of drab, broken-down basics proved he can’t be taken seriously as a designer, but nevertheless many people in fashion do seem to take West seriously — they keep showing up expectantly for his performances — and that makes them fools,” she wrote, after claiming the models looked like POWs in Spanx.
