Kanye “Ye” West isn’t saying goodbye to Gap just yet.
The rapper’s second Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga collection dropped on Thursday — despite West, 45, who ended his partnership with the retailer last week — and includes outerwear and knitwear, as well as a backpack and sling bag alongside a restock of original favorites.
Among the offerings are the Round Jacket 2 ($260) in black, as well as a knee-length Long Round Jacket ($400), Cargo Pant ($220), Waterproof Dry Bag ($200), Coated Cotton Overalls ($300) and Lake.
Fans can shop the line on the Yeezy Gap or Balenciaga websites, as well as Farfetch, MyTheresa and LuisaViaRoma.
And Ye is taking over Yeezy Gap globally — on Sept. 23 and 26, the Gap Tokyo and Shanghai flagship stores will be redesigned in the Yeezy utilitarian design, marking the first time West’s creations for the store will be available in stores internationally, according to a press release.
Despite the star publicly disapproving of his relationship with the store, a source tells Page Six Style it won’t be the last straw in the partnership.
While West sent a letter to Gap claiming that the company was not releasing certain styles as promised or opening specialty Yeezy Gap stores as planned, we received an internal message to Gap employees stating that the retailer intended to extend the partnership. to continue to the end.

“While we share a vision to bring high-quality, trend-forward, utilitarian design to all people through unique omni experiences with Yeezy Gap, how we work together to realize this vision is not aligned. And we decide to wind down the partnership,” Gap Brands president and CEO Mark Breitbard wrote in part.
“We look forward to our upcoming Yeezy Gap launches and releases in the pipeline, as planned.”
