The rapper-turned-fashion designer is getting slammed online after photographs emerged showing his latest Yeezy line for Gap on display shoved into three large black bags, apparently as per Ye’s his request.
“This is how they are selling Yeezy Gap,” Twitter user @owen_lang captioned the picture. “The sales associate said Ye got mad when he saw they had it on hangers and this is how he wanted it. They won’t help you find ur size too, you just have to just dig through everything.”
Obviously opinions were had and shared, with another user replying, “imagine fishing through a garbage bag for new clothes in a store. This is unhinged,” regarding the unconventional clothing display. one person wrote.
A third user accused West of being tasteless for claiming homelessness as a design aesthetic. As West recently shared on Instagram explaining that children and the homeless are “the biggest inspiration for all design.” Commenting, “personally, I think rich people cosplaying as homeless is in bad taste and Ye himself saying homeless people are his inspiration is kind of worse, but hey, art right?"
And while others had issues with the collection itself, which features an array of oversized and bulky, dark gray pieces and accessories ranging in price from $40 to $340. Some, came to West’s defense, asserting that he was minimizing the work of sales assistants.
With one person quipping that based on his experience of working at clothing store as a teenager. West’s distinct display instructions to not to hang the clothes was his “gift” to Gap employees.
