Throughout a particularly tense moment in The Social Community, the 2010 David Fincher movie concerning the genesis of Fb, Eduardo Saverin (performed by Andrew Garfield) confronts his cofounder, Jesse Eisenberg’s Mark Zuckerberg, by calling out Zuck’s now-famous schlubby uniform.

“Sorry, my Prada’s on the cleaners,” he yells, “together with my hoodie and my fuck-you flip-flops.”

And it appears the artist previously referred to as Kanye West, who has spent the final couple weeks mired in a couple different professional schisms, introduced out his very personal hoodie and fuck-you flip-flops for London Trend Week, attending the Burberry present on Monday in anoutfit notable even by Ye’s exaggerated requirements: a four-sleeved (?) black leather-based shirt (the sleeves not full of Ye’s arms have been tied round his waist) and matching trousers, over a light grey sweatshirt and what seems to be a pair of black tabi split-toe socks tucked into some seemingly DIY’d rhinestone-trimmed flip-flops. The presence of drawstrings on the hoodie suggests it’s in all probability not certainly one of his “perfect” Yeezy Gap iterations, and the flip-flops definitely don’t appear to be any of the Yeezys slides we’ve seen earlier than.

Conscious of his personal meme-potential even within the second, Ye posted a close-up of the flip-flops on his Instagram Story this morning, which he captioned, “Don’t discuss to me.”

Ye has been pushing one thing of a “don’t discuss to me” message of late, after placing a kibosh on his Gap partnership just two years into a decade-long contract and putting his blockbuster Adidas deal in the identical crosshairs. Supposedly, there’s still a final Yeezy Gap runway show within the works for Paris Trend Week, presently scheduled to happen subsequent Monday, October 3, arriving on the heels of the final Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga collection launched final week. As Hole CEO Mark Breitbard assured workers when information of the tip of the Yeezy Hole deal hit final week, the retailer plans to observe via with pre-planned tasks via the tip of the yr. Don’t count on to see any crystal flip-flops from that partnership, although.
