Kanye West and Gap collaboration

Kanye West’s history with Gap dates back to the singer’s documented college dropout days when he was working as a retail clerk for the company.

The Yeezy Gap collaboration was first announced in the summer of 2020. Mark Breitbard, Gap’s global head at the time, shared that their partnership will provide customers with a “next level” experience.

Breitbard continued: “We are excited to welcome Kanye back to the Gap family as a creative visionary, building on the aesthetic and success of his YEEZY brand and together defining a next-level retail partnership.”

In the years that followed, the Breitbard statement proved to be an accurate prediction with several subsequent successes.

One of these included the release of the long-discussed Perfect Hoodie. It also consisted of Yeezy, Gap and Balenciaga collectively launching a “creative exploration”.

A couple of days before the Yeezy Gap announcement, West claimed that the aforementioned hoodie’s black colourway “sold for $14 million… in a TV commercial that once aired.” “.
