Hip-hop icon and culture curator Kanye West announces his 10 year collaboration yesterday with America’s sweetheart brand GAP. Identified as the #WestDayEver, Kanye’s tweet comes as a major displacement in the fashion industry which no one expected. A media frenzy reminiscent of Beyoncé’s Adidas × Ivy Park collaboration as well as Rihanna x Puma is verified for lines of anticipation forming now set to release 2021.
