Enter: YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga
Mere hours after a viral Interview article explained the furore around Julia Fox and Kanye West’s much-talked-about date night, a press release confirmed that Ye is working on a collaboration between his YEEZY GAP project and his idol, Balenciaga’s Demna. Said to be available in June with a subsequent drop in the latter half of the year, the collection will answer many people’s dreams: Balenciaga aesthetic (Ye-infused) at GAP prices. For context, the infamously sold-out YEEZY GAP Round Jacket that crashed the brand’s website cost just $200. Of the venture, Demna said: “This is a very different challenge. I’ve always appreciated the utilitarianism and the accessibility of Gap. I share some of the same sensibilities in my creative language. This project allowed me to join forces [with Ye] to create utilitarian fashion for all.”
Ashley Graham gives birth to twin boys
Supermodel Ashley Graham took to Twitter to reveal that her twins have entered the world. The baby joy news comes just hours after the Nebraska-native shared images of her 40-week bump to Instagram. Graham, 34, and her longtime husband Justin Ervin welcomed their first son, Isaac, in 2020. Congrats!
Justin and I are so excited to share that our baby boys are here. They were born early this morning at home and are happy and healthy.
I’m taking some time to heal up and connect with my husband and three boys, but I truly can not wait to share more with you all.
