Yesterday, in an official statement from brand president, Pete Fox, is was announced that Kanye West’s YEEZY Season 2 would not release in line with traditional fashion calendars for spring/summer 2016.
According to Fox’s statement, which was sent to select YEEZY retailers, this move works in conjunction with a transition to a season-less model. Thus, YEEZY Season 2 will not be produced in its entirely. Instead, select capsules will release throughout the year. A calendar for those releases was not specified.
Aside from the non-traditional move towards a season-less stream of releases, the delay will apparently aid in better quality products and to the embrace of many, a reduction in retail cost.
Where YEEZY Season 2 footwear is concerned, though, Fox reports everything remains on schedule for a global release on June 6. Additionally, Season 3 is said to not be affected by any of the changes with the Season 2 rollout.
