Every year, the first Monday of May is perpetually marked on the calendar of celebrities. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute exhibition is unveiled yearly on that day and the world's most notable figures parade up the steps of New York's Upper East Side museum to celebrate.
This year's theme was "Camp," a notion closely tied with Susan Sontag's essay, Notes on Camp, originally published in 1964. While her definitions call for "seeing everything in quotation marks," a ONE37pm style favorite, Kanye West, took an alternative approach.
While some rappers wore sneakers and extravagant fits, West rolled up to the pink carpet wearing a demure ensemble, rebellious in its subtlety and casualness. Much like this personal clothing line, his outfit had an air of nonchalance and streetwear attitude; The same attitude that West has made a clothing empire out of with his brand, Yeezy.
