These days not everything Kanye West touches turns to gold, which may be one reason why his first Yeezy jewelry collection is very, very gold. A collaboration with Jacob Arabo aka Jacob the Jeweler, the 12 pieces draw from classical relief portraits from 14th Century Florence, meaning they’re equal parts gaudy and pretentious. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
“I wanted to create something that represented timeless love,” West told Vogue. Naturally, they’ve been worn by West’s timeless love, Kim Kardashian, all over the globe ever since they made their debut on the ill-fated Yeezy Season 4 runway.
This is a departure for West, whose designs are typically minimal apocalyptic future. Anywho, they’re nice enough, I guess, but hardly groundbreaking.
With prices ranging from about $4,000 to $11,000, these items definitely fall outside your typical fuckboi’s budget. They’ll have to eBay a lot of Supreme box hoodies to rustle up that kind of cash. You can buy them here.
