Call it an attack, a creative exchange, or, like longtime collaborators Kanye West and Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia, a Skill. Whatever you call it, the next eight Yeezy Gap pieces are on sale today at Yeezygap and Farfetch (after the countdown on the old clock kept resetting throughout Tuesday). They look like Gap reworked for astigmatism.
The only Gap two piece matching collection that Kanye has released so far, a huge hit tuber shape, round wax coat and Perfect Hoodie crop. For the most part: logos and branding. In: shapes, materials, and shadows are more recognizable than any other badge. There are hoodies and t-shirts, layered over or under ponchos, underwired tops, and ties. There was a tracksuit, a jumpsuit made of what seemed to be the best material, and baggy trousers. Almost everything is molded in black, save for a light wash and ripped denim jacket and jeans. Of course, every model in the look book is fully covered. Prices range from $120 to $440.
