West Day Ever: Yeezy Drops First Piece From His GAP Collab
| LAST UPDATE 06/13/2021
‘Ye is officially another year older. And what better way to celebrate than by gifting us with another cop? The rapper’s first piece from his long-awaited GAP collab has finally arrived... and right in time for the rapper's 44th birthday. Here’s what we know about the long-awaited drop…
For starters, the first piece from Yeezy x GAP is exactly as outrageous as you'd expect it to be: a bright-blue unisex puffer jacket made from recycled nylon. While it might look slightly different than 'Ye's Sunday Service attire, the risky number is just as noteworthy. Perhaps that's why it'll cost ya the big bucks - about $200, to be exact.
Take a good look at the puffer for yourself above. Look familiar? That's because Mr. West already stepped out in L.A. donning the latest piece. On June 5th, the Jesus is King artist was spotted hitting Cali's streets dressed in the neon jacket - despite the 80-something degree weather outside. But hey, that's just 'Ye being 'Ye. Right?

As for how you can cop the puffer for yourself? Unfortunately, it appears you might be waiting a bit longer. Just hours after the drop hit GAP's official site, it was already listed as Sold Out. Yes, really. But if you haven't gotten your hands on the jacket this time around, don't stress.
While there's no official word yet on future drops, we'd say there's lots more where that came from. In case you forgot, West and GAP signed a 10-year agreement in which 'Ye will be making clothing for men, women, and children. As for what to expect? Think "modern, elevated basics," as the retailer promised in an official statement.
Luckily, we won't be seeing designer price tags on most of their pieces. As the fashion giant assured, the upcoming collection will be sold at "accessible price points." That is if we can get our hands on 'em before they sell out. Head on over to their official site to keep tabs on the line for yourself.
