Kanye West celebrated his 44th birthday on Tuesday, and Kanye made sure US fans could enjoy the day right with him. The Chicago-bred mogul released the first glimpse of his anticipated Yeezy Gap line to kick-off West Day Ever and consumers can purchase the first garment online.
The appetizer didn’t include the full collection but just the baby blue puffy jacket Kanye West has been spotted rocking all over steamy Los Angeles in recent weeks. The wide-fitted Round Jacket is made of recycled nylon with no zippers and is currently available for pre-order for $200. Shipments on the jackets are expected to begin this fall. It remains to be seen if this is the only drop for today or Kanye and Gap plan to roll out more from the collection in the coming hours.
Kanye West’s manager Abou “Bu” Thiam added to the hype in an Instagram comment teasing his client’s 10th studio album. “WestDayEver. Album OTW,” he wrote. Plans for the “YZY Gap” line were originally announced in July 2020 when a 10-year partnership was struck between him and his former employer.
