Kanye and Demna arrive at GAP, and more fashion news you missed
Bottega Veneta returns to the internet, while Susie Essman scrapes dog muck off her Marc Jacobs
Kanye West and Demna’s three-way collaboration has arrived at GAP. Coinciding with the launch of Donda 2 and Balenciaga’s AW22 collection, the co-conspirators unveiled a bevy of garments, seemingly pilfered from West’s own wardrobe – all cropped, oversized, and gloomy. There are smoky grey sweatshirts, stonewashed denim, sweatpants, and logo t-shirts, all of which have been styled back with imposing Red Wing-style boots. A dove motif has been swept over the back of several items which, according to an accompanying press release, “represents an unnamed hope for the future”. When the project was first announced in January, it was hawked as an opportunity to bring design to the masses: “to make incredible product available to everyone at all times,” as West said in an interview with Vogue – but with only eight garments on sale, starting at $140, were their ambitions perhaps a little inflated?
