Kanye West: YEEZY Season 6 Zine presents the sixth collection of Kanye West’s YEEZY line of footwear, apparel and accessories. Like West’s past zines, this newest edition boldly presents Jackie Nickerson’s atmospheric photographs of the objects without any text, creating an exclusively visual experience of the clothing line.
Members of the YEEZY cast, including Abella Danger, Hafiia Mira, Amina Blue and Chanel Postrel, are captured in and around West’s Calabasas design studio during the aftermath of the 2017 wildfires. The charred, ashen landscape of the Santa Monica Mountains echoes the subtle mineral palette of the collection, rendered in vivid detail.
