Kanye West has confirmed a collaboration between his Yeezy brand and the Gap on social media. “YEEZY AND GAP FORM PARTNERSHIP #WESTDAYEVER,” he tweeted along with a Gap logo with the letters “YZY.”
The Yeezy Gap apparel line is set to hit stores and online in early 2021 and will include “modern, elevated basics for men, women and kids at accessible price points,” according to a news release from the brands. West will also have a hand at designing the in-store and online presentations, agreeing to a 10-year deal starting this month, with the option to renew after five years,
The collaboration is a full circle moment for West, who used to work at a Gap store in Chicago as a teenager. In 2015, he even told Vanity Fair magazine that he wanted to be Gap’s creative director.
