Ye and Demna Announce YEEZY Gap “Engineered by Balenciaga” Collection Drop 2
YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga is back and as enigmatic than ever. May 25 marks the second drop of Ye and Demna-designed collection and, of course, there’s scarcely any information about it out there even with the imminent release.
Teased in Ye’s recent “Life of the Party” music video, the second YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga drop (yes, you do have to say the entire name every time) ought to include everything — or at least most of the stuff — that didn’t release in the initial offering.
So, moving beyond the archetypal hoodies, T-shirts, denim jackets, and sweatpants that rolled out on February 22, expect YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga anoraks, puffy jackets, coats, and perhaps even some insulated sleeping bags, just in time for summer!
Since its inception and even the initial announcement, YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga has divided fans but proven demonstrably popular, selling swiftly on pre-order and inspiring some mass resale, though not for terribly inflated prices.
None of the stuff was particularly cheap to begin with, mind you, though everything was leagues cheaper than Balenciaga’s mainline collection. The boxy T-shirts were $140, hoodies were $240, and the padded denim jacket was $440, making YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga pricing comparable to the average mid-tier fashion label.
The expansive YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga lookbook, revealed alongside the first collection, spotlights a plethora of thus-far-unreleased items, including the aforementioned anoraks, coats, and bags.
Ye was seen wearing one of the presumed YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga hats during a recent trip to Japan but few if any other unreleased items have actually seen the light of day.
The YEEZY GAP website currently has a timer ticking down to 9:15 am EST, when the new YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga collection will drop (also for pre-order, presumably).
Of course, this is all speculative, because there’s been no official news about the latest YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga drop since it was announced in mid-May. Hardly unusual for Ye, though.
Then, once that’s all said and done, Ye will be releasing his new McDonald’s meal. Another cruel summer in the making.
