The internet has exploded at nearly every stage of Kanye West’s Yeezy x Gap collaboration, from when the collab was first announced, to when we got a glimpse of some possible looks, to the launch of the infamous blue puffer. Now, the internet is again up in arms as West was spotted at the Balenciaga couture show in Paris in another puffy black jacket.
While the spotlight was on Balenciaga for its first couture show in more than 50 years, West had his fair share of attention as well, thanks to the jacket. Paired with a balaclava (just as he had styled the blue Round Jacket prior to its release), everyone was abuzz about the new black jacket. Upon closer inspection, it looks to not be a new drop but instead a black version of the blue Round Jacket. West made a surprise appearance at the show and sat near Lewis Hamilton and James Harden.
The now sold-out blue puffer was initially met with mixed emotions, ranging from “this looks like a trash bag” to “obsessed,” but the hype around this collaboration keeps on coming. The blue Round Jacket is offered on StockX for 9, nearly triple the original sale price of 0, and the jacket doesn’t even ship until the fall.
The 10-year partnership between West and Gap has been long-awaited process. From the initial signing early last year to the first piece released a month ago, fans are ready for another release from the two.
West also wore the blue version of the jacket right before its release, so we could very well be seeing some new Yeezy x Gap as soon as tomorrow. He’s not the only one to do this recently, either — Travis Scott was spotted in a Cactus Jack x Dior look in Paris prior to the announcement of his collaboration with the French house.
Plus, the blue version of the Round Jacket dropped on June 8, so maybe West wants to space the pieces out exactly one month apart. There’s also a chance that this is a piece from his own personal collection that inspired the blue Round Jacket. But for now, we’ll just have to wait and see to find out what the Yeezy x Gap collaboration has in store for us next.
