Is Yeezy Gap by Balenciaga the Collaboration We’ve Been Waiting For?

Arriving in its first collection with eight pieces to choose from Mr West, 44, teamed up with Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia to co-design products for Gap, including a $240 black hoodie ($480 AUD) that sold out minutes after launching. The same cannot be said for other pieces in the collection, namely the denim pants, jacket, and cotton t-shirts that are sitting on the Yeezy Gap site at the time of writing.

In a January interview with Vogue, Gvasalia was questioned about his collaboration with Ye, stating, “there’s a certain urban minimalism and poetry in our aesthetics, also a desire to push boundaries.”

Adding, “There are very few people that I know, especially of Ye’s calibre, who really understand my work so well. He makes me come out of my comfort zone and be a better designer. There’s no ego when we collaborate, just a mutual drive to evolve and do something great and new.”

Each piece in the collection features a GAP Logo front and centre, an oversize Balenciaga cut, drop shoulders, and mushroom cut lower hem. The pieces benefit from a white dove motif on the back, in a press release obtained by PEOPLE magazine, the motif is said to suggest “an unnamed hope for the future.”

The Yeezy Gap x Balenciaga collection is available online through YeezyGap.com and Farfetch.com. Item prices range from $120 to $440 USD. All products are available through pre-order and will be shipped in 4-8 weeks, we’re getting Anti Social Social Club vibes and we highly recommend putting your name on the waiting list should the product be sold out. Thers’ a good chance it’ll come back in stock as orders are cancelled.
