On Kanye West’s 44th birthday, the popular retailer Gap announced that the first item that they would be selling in their highly anticipated Yeezy Gap collaboration collection would be a “Round Jacket” retailing for $200.
The blue jacket is just made of recycled nylon and only available to U.S. shoppers. With a high demand for the rap icon’s new clothing line, the jacket — which was only available for pre-order on Tuesday — sold out in quick time.
To mark the announcement, the Gap announced the release of the outerwear piece with a silent Instagram video with a floating baby wearing a puffer jacket and no caption.
Missed the chance to grab your “Round Jacket?” No worries.
According to Gap, shoppers who weren’t able to get their hands on the jacket will have to wait until the fall to get their shot at wearing the shiny piece of clothing.
Last June, West and Gap announced their collaboration. At the time, the purpose of the team up was to “develop the new line to deliver modern, elevated basics for men, women and kids at accessible price points.”
“I picture the Gap in some way different than I think the rest of the people picture,” West said during an interview with Vanity Fair in 2015. “I say things like I want to be creative director for the Gap, but I just got to give credit to the people who creative direction at the Gap.”
West also has his fashion line working in collaboration with Adidas for his signature footwear.
