Yeezy Gap Collaboration with Balenciaga Is “Over” Says Its Designer
According to Balenciaga’s head designer, Demna Gvasalia, Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga is officially “over.”
Ye and Demna’s “chaotic” brainchild came to fruition following this month’s highly anticipated in-store product release across the country, according to an article from the New York Times published today.
Even though “is now over,” Balenciaga has not ruled out other releases in the near future, according to the designer.
There is no doubt that the father of four’s new chapter will involve similar “Engineered by” agreements with other brands in the future, according to a New York Times report.
According to Gvasalia, “This was just step No. 1,” “He needed a starting point, and that was my challenge: to give him the starting point. But he is still miles and miles away from where he wants this to go.”
The lengthy update also reveals more about the role of Leonardo Lawson, the head of Yeezy Gap, in the opening of LA’s “innovation studio” for Ye’s Balenciaga project, as well as specifics about 2020 concepts that never made it into production.
