By making appearances at London and Paris Fashion Weeks, the person known as “Kanye West” has re-entered the public consciousness. The latter event also featured a screening of YZYSZN 9 (also known as Yeezy Season 9). It also unveiled a 3D-printed version of Zellerfeld‘s YZY Boot.
Despite being less well-known than Ye’s imprint, the Brooklyn-based studio, has quickly emerged as a force in the fully-printed footwear-industry. This studio has previously collaborated with Heron Preston and AMBUSH. 3D printing made it possible to print and design first YZY Boot. In just one weekend they did it. It was possible Thanks to Zellerfeld’s creativity. It enables creatives like the adidas Yeezy-frontman to cut the manufacturing process for footwear drastically. From months or years down to weeks. The technology developed by Zellerfeld is astonishing in and of itself, but it also produces working, highly configurable prototypes instantly.
The Yeezy Boots are intentionally branded without any mention of the Three Stripes. It shows what is still feasible even if Ye separates from adidas. Additionally, YZY’s collaboration with Zellerfeld successfully blends fashion and technology in a way that has the potential to-uplift each industry. Given the past and present of the previous “Mr. West,” it is likely.
As you wait for official launch information, have a look at the Zellerfeld YZYSZN 9 3D-printed boot below.
