In an interview today with noted fashion journalist Ryan Seacrest, Kanye West outlined his grand plans for his big Adidas launch, and it sounds like he is striving to make access to the collection as democratic as possible. Yeezus freaks around the world will be able to get a look at the collection, he explained, with ten showings of the presentation over the next two days. After all, Kanye considers us all to be fashion insiders. According to Complex’s highlights reel, West added,

If you’re a family in Brooklyn, you can come and bring your kids and just check it out. But wait a second, not just Brooklyn. We’re going to stream the presentation to 40 locations around the globe — Johannesburg, Melbourne, Sydney, London, Atlanta, Chicago. If you’re in Atlanta, and you’re a fresh kid, and you wore the Margielas ‘cause you saw me up there on the “Yeezus” tour with them and your girl is fresh and she got some Alaïa shoes off of eBay because she saw Kim wear them at fashion week, and you’re doing your thing and everything and you find out ‘Ye’s got this fashion show that you go to a theatre to see at 4 o’clock, you’re going to go see that. You’re going to want to feel that energy there’s and I want everybody … This isn’t about elitism, this isn’t about separatism. This is about as many people being involved with this vision as possible.

And never fear: Kanye will ensure that no one gets harmed in the procurement of their Boosts.

I just wanna make sure that we keep it safe. I’ve heard about people getting hurt for sneaker culture in the past. I just want everyone to be safe and be patient. Just be patient. I know you can run up on this kid and take his Yeezys but just be patient because we’ll make more Yeezys. Eventually everybody who wants to get Yeezys will get Yeezys.

And, in the future, everyone will have Yeezys for 15 minutes. But wait! ‘Ye buried the lede. He concluded the interview by telling Seacrest, “Next season, my focus is gonna be doing high school uniforms.” Now, that we would like to see.
