After months of anticipation, the Yeezy Gap collaboration is here and it’s, well, interesting.
The first release from the long-awaited collection is a sky blue down “Round Jacket” that Yeezy’s been seen rocking as of late in Los Angeles. The Pre-order for the new jacket went live earlier this morning and fans looking to get themselves one paid a modest $200 on Gap.com/yeezy.
Interestingly enough the Yeezy “Round Jacket” also perfectly matches adidas’ latest Yeezy release, the Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN “Bright Cyan” colorway that’s been flying off the digital shelves since its drop this past Saturday. It’s almost like if you copped those kicks you have to get the jacket to match. The apparently zipper-less outerwear is also made out of recycled nylon for the people who appreciate stuff like that.
Why they decided to drop a down jacket at the beginning of the summer ’21 season is anyone’s guess, but heads will be copping even if that means holding it down until the temperature drops in a few months.
Ever the marketer, there will be floating projections of the Yeezy Gap Round Jacket in four locations throughout three cities; Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. If you’re so inclined to see for yourself:
