The latest from Kanye West is here: The multi-hyphenated mogul has just released the second drop of his YEEZY GAP collaborative brand Engineered by Balenciaga.
Led by West, Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia and Gap, the new YEEZY GAP x BALENCIAGA collection is available for pre-order now via Farfetch.com and YeezyGap.com. The relaunch also brings a bonus restock on some items from the previous drop, including hoodies and t-shirts with dove graphics. Prices range from $60 to $500.
Shipping dates are different for each piece, ranging from June to September, and – as with everything else designed by Ye – will likely sell out quickly. Make sure to place all orders now.
Featuring a range of tops, bottoms and accessories, the new Drop reflects Kanye’s current look with an almost all black palette. Nylon, elastane, and spandex abound, lending a futuristic vibe that Ye has been championing lately. Some pieces, like the long-sleeved bodysuit, show the 44-year-old’s taste for the unorthodox.
Originally scheduled for May 25, the new collection was delayed due to the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Ahead of the collection’s release, a message on YeezyGap.com read: “IN VIEW OF THE TRAGEDY IN UVALDE, TEXAS, WE ARE POSTING THE YEEZY GAP HOMEPAGE MOVE FROM BALENCIAGA TO FRIDAY, MAY 27 AT 6PM PST / 9AM EST. WHILE WE PAUSE, OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO THE AFFECTED FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES.”
Fans got a sneak peak at the new YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga collection in West’s “Life of the Party” music video earlier this month. The video, released May 9, features old photos of Ye, animated and Photoshopped, as they perform the track while rocking new YEEZY GAP x BALENCIAGA gear.
The first drop of YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga – which was released in February – is not scheduled to ship until July 1 and previously sold out on all platforms. However, some pieces have been restocked on Farfetch.com.
Yes’s relationship with Balenciaga designer Gvasalia can be traced back to last year, when the duo teamed up to create merch for West’s donda listening party. Last year also saw the first releases from Yeezy Gap, including the much-hyped Round Jacket puffer jacket and the Yeezy x GAP hoodie.
Although Kanye has always released some of the best merch in the game, these drops from YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga are something special. Combining the clout of a respected French designer, Ye’s eye for trends and Gap’s reach on the mass market, YEEZY GAP x BALENCIAGA’s pieces are unlike West’s (many) previous fashion endeavors. It represents a continued expansion of the mogul’s influence in apparel, and industry experts are not surprised.
