Capsule Wardrobe: Kanye West Birthday

Kanye West has officially hit the big 40. The king of twitter rows, feuds with Taylor and his ambition to run for presidency in 2024 got the world talking, making it safe to say Kanye never fails to be, well, Kanye.

It’s been a tough year for Kimye; after Kanye’s hospitalisation and Kim being robbed at gunpoint in Paris, it comes as no surprise that Kimye are having time-out in the Bahamas, giving us major holiday envy. Though we’re not exactly relaxing in the Bahamas right now, we’ve rounded up a capsule wardrobe on Yeezy Season Four and the key pieces your wardrobe needs right now to celebrate his birthday.

Unless you’ve been locked away in a cupboard, Kanye’s a key influencer in the apparel world – often colliding fashion with performances in his runway presentations. Street apparel has been given a whole new meaning thanks to his Yeezy collection, although we probably need a mini loan to actually wear just one piece from his line.

Kanye once declared himself the ‘greatest rockstar on the planet’, so if that doesn’t give you some inspiration, we’ve also rounded up a few motivational tweets from the man himself to get you through Thursday and Friday. If Kanye can’t teach self-love, no one can.

Oversized Jackets

Oversized jackets are a thing all year round. As said in a recent Vogue interview, Kanye wanted his range to remain timeless.  It’s safe to say parka jackets make a return every year and, as it’s festival season, there’s no more reasons not to add these neutral cover-ups to bag.
