The rationale behind Kanye West‘s unexpected, sudden Sunday Service in Paris may have just come to light. Several fashion industry vets have uploaded imagery of a mysterious Fashion Week invitation to social media, revealing that West may yet have more in store for the French capital.
Along with new YEEZY sneakers, West has apparently prepped a new YEEZY Season collection. “Here is a little piece of our home in Cody, Wyoming,” reads a card adorned only with text. Along with today’s date — March 2, 2020 — and a dedication — “From the West family” — the card confirms that the recipient is invited to the YEEZY Season 8 presentation. The card is accompanied by two small gifts: fake rattlesnake eggs and a bundle of sage, each reflecting the mood of West’s adopted hometown.

West’s presentation is likely to include both apparel and footwear, perhaps even the new YZY BSKTBL Quantum. Though a bevy of YEEZY footwear has continued to roll out globally, including the 380 “Mist” and 700 MNVN “Orange,” YEEZY apparel was last seen back in 2018.
Hosted by Espace Niemeyer at 2 Place du Colonel Fabien, YEEZY Season 8 will be livestreamed on the YEEZY website today at 9:30 PM CET (3:30 EST).
