Kanye West debuts his Yeezy Season 8 collection prototypes

Yeezy Season 8 Debuts & North West Raps

Paris Fashion week received some of North West’s experimental (and borrowed) bars during Yeezy Season 8 Fashion show this week. On Monday, Kanye West brought his sought after Yeezy brand to the runway where it was met with mixed reviews. Placed in a venue as complex as the collection, fashion mavens piled into the Espace Niemeyer, which is known as the headquarters for the French Communist Party. Those who received invitations knew they were in for a treat when they found that invites included both a bundle of white sage and rattlesnake eggs.

Muted pastel puffer coats, oversized slides and puffer crops made for a cloudy and dreamy aesthetic, but still was heavy on the confusion. Where a lot of the structure was puffy with a muted color scheme, there were also blocky shoes with abrasive neon colors in the collection. However, when questioned about Yeezy Season 8, West openly admitted that a lot of the ideas were not completed finished, and prices haven’t even been set yet. Kanye admitted that he was doing some experimental approached to the fabric in this latest collection.

“The wool will be from [the sheep on my ranch]. We’re just looking at different ways to approach things. Ninety-percent of this collection is muslin it its original fabric. We’ve been looking at how we can create a suede effect or how we can dye it. This is all experimental. Each one of the pieces here is in its infant stage. They’re all new inventions and new approaches to apparel. Now, I’m looking at them, and thinking, where I can take them with their color and forms,” Kanye explained.

The Yeezy Season 8 show was the first he has had over two years since Yeezy Season 5. However, this will be be one of the most talked about ones with the newfound rap career of his 6-year-old daughter, North West, or how she likes to introduce herself, “Hi, I’m Northie.”

North West barked her own rendition of ZaZa’s “What I Do”, which caused a giddy reaction from the audience, however ZaZa’s mother wasn’t so enthused who posted an Instagram post highlighting the fact that North had the performed the song without giving ZaZa any credit.

However, Kim apologized and later mentioned ZaZa on Twitter and how North hopes that the 5-year-old raptress liked the remix.

All in all, it seems that Yeezy Season 8 was one of the highlights so far of Paris Fashion Week.

Everything There is to Know About Psalm West

The name and first photos of Psalm West, the fourth child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, were shared this weekend in a tweet from Kim.

The post showed a screenshot of a text conversation with husband, Kanye, saying ” We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need.”

Psalm’s birth was announced on May 10—a week that was noteworthy for the number of babies birthed into immense privilege and wealth.

Psalm West was born via surrogate and joins three older siblings—North (age 5), Saint (age 3) and Chicago (1).

Kim, now a mom-of-four as well as an aspiring layer, wrote that her new baby boy is “perfect.”

Kim and Kanye confirmed in January that they were expecting a fourth child, their second to be born via surrogate, after Kim endured difficult and high-risk pregnancies with her first two children.

While it seems like there is always a Kardashian-Jenner with a baby on the way, Kim has confirmed that Psalm is her last, as it was revealed that this was the last embryo the couple had left.

To celebrate Psalm’s coming, the Kardashian-Jenner clan held a CBD-themed baby shower that focused on all things meditation and relaxation last month.

Psalm West is Kris Jenner’s tenth grandchild.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Expecting Baby No. 4

According to US Weekly, Kardashian, 38, and West, 41, are expecting a fourth child via surrogate.

The baby is reportedly due in “very early May,” although the couple are yet to comment on the circulating news.

Kardashian is said to have only one fertilized embryo remaining and will be using the same surrogate who carried her daughter Chicago—born 12 months ago, on January 15.

The couple currently have three children. The new baby, reportedly a boy, will also join sister North, 5, and brother Saint, 3.

Suffering from health issues in her previous pregnancies, Kardashian turned to a surrogate for her youngest daughter after doctors advised her not to get pregnant again naturally.

She has previously opened up about her complications and battle with placenta accreta, a condition where the placenta grows too deeply into the uterine wall.

“There were a couple of little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus, which I think made it really tough to get pregnant again,” she told C Magazine.

The identity of the surrogate who carried Chicago remains unknown, but she did make an anonymous cameo on Keeping Up with the Kardashians last year and her first name was revealed to be Lorena.

“My surrogate is such a nice person, my family absolutely loves her and I’m so grateful,” the reality star said in the episode.

Following Chicago’s birth, she said: “I enjoyed the surrogacy process. When it came time to breastfeed, I realized it was the best decision I have made—it’s a game changer.

“I can spend so much more time with the older kids, getting them used to the new baby.”

In more recent episodes of the show, Kardashian spilled that “Kanye wants to have more children.”

“He’s been harassing me. He wants like seven. He’s like stuck on seven,” she said.

Speaking to E! News in August 2018, Kardashian shot down rumors that the couple were planning for baby number four. However, she was clearly not opposed to the idea.

“None of that was true…but I’ve been really open about it and talked about it on our show, so…I don’t know.”

Meanwhile, a source stated that some of her sisters are also thinking about getting pregnant again.

Born within a few months of each other, cousins Chicago West, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s 11-month-old daughter Stormi Webster, and Khloé Karashian and Tristan Thompson’s eight-month-old daughter True Thompson, have become known as the “triplets”.

Another Kardashian-Jenner baby boom may well be on the horizon.
