Update: We officially have a second drop for the highly anticipated Yeezy x Gap collection. The rapper and retailer have released a black puffer jacket, which is available for preorder in Japan, Europe, and the UK, priced at ¥26,000, €180, and £160, respectively. The piece has an estimated shipping date of winter 2021. While a link for US customers has still not been made available, the blue puffer retailed for $200 and is scheduled to ship this fall.
Original Post: Well, it’s finally happening — after months of speculation, Kanye West’s Yeezy x Gap line has finally arrived. The first piece from the collection, a blue puffer jacket made from recycled nylon, has been released for preorder on the rapper’s 44th birthday. Kanye was actually spotted in Los Angeles wearing the $200 statement piece earlier in the week. (Although, you wouldn’t have been able to tell it was him, because he wore a printed ski mask over his face.)
Like his Yeezy line, the jacket is pretty simple when it comes to details. The sleek design doesn’t even seem to have pockets or logos on it, aside from the official Yeezy x Gap tag stitched at the neck. In addition to the release of the first product, the duo will also be showcasing “floating projections of the Yeezy Gap Round Jacket” in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
Ahead, take a look at the puffer, which is available for preorder online with shipping starting in the fall. You can also see pictures of the floating projections.
