A nod to DONDA, this might be a new leather era.
Heavy-soled boots and full leather everything seem to be becoming more popular since the drop of Kanye West’s latest album, DONDA.
From wearing an everyday leathery bondage-style outfit to wearing an all-black Balenciaga bodysuit at the MET Gala, Kim Kardashian seems to be getting inspired by Kanye as much as she's been supporting his latest work.
We're all aware he’s been a trendsetter from day one, influencing the world with his art and constantly seeking different ways to approach the industry. We bet you all remember the YEEZUS era when he redefined pop culture with a utilitarian look — we’re talking khaki and gray hues combined with retro-tech sneakers.
The shift to this new post-Covid-19 period seems more post-apocalyptic, though, a lot darker, bolder, and maybe a little more chaotic.
And Kanye is not even the star of his 10th album, the whole movement sounds more like curating a museum. It's a project that manages to engage the public in a conversation about the different aspects of mainstream music and what could possibly be the purest form of expression for an artist — giving that DONDA is named after his mother.
Still, the DONDA era leaves room for speculation of all kinds, as most of Kanye’s work does.
