On Instagram, the Yeezy founder also shared a snapshot of himself on the runway and captioned it, “WAR.”

Balenciaga's recent show featured a mud-filled runway where models, including Ye, trailed about for the apocalyptic-like presentation.

Throughout the show, various looks were displayed, including a lime green long-sleeve dress to shiny cropped puffer jackets.

The brand's creative director, Denma Gvasalia, explained in the show's notes that the set is a “metaphor for digging for truth and being down to earth.”

“I've decided to no longer explain my collections and verbalise my designs, but to express a state of mind,” Denma said. “Fashion is a visual art and all we need is for it to be seen through someone's eyes. Fashion in its best case scenario should not need a story to be sold to someone. You either like it or not. The set of this show is a metaphor for digging for truth and being down to earth.”
