The relationship between Kanye West And GAP has clearly hit some rough waters… as Ye took shots at the retail giant allegedly being left out of meetings and copying his designs.
She has now left the company for two days in a row, and first announced on Tuesday, “Jap had a meeting for me without me?” Then on Wednesday, he posted a text exchange with someone accusing GAP of copying Yeezy GAP Engineered designs by Balenciaga on a standard GAP shirt.
According to Kanye, GAP also backed out of the photo session with his kids, writing, “But they canceled the photo session with my kids in Japan without my knowledge.”
Of course, Kanye’s Yeezy GAP line has been very successful so far – with fantastic online and in-store sales. However, the relationship seemed to have become strained, as you did not have a voice in business operations as he had intended.
One thing we know Kanye has complete control over, though, is displaying clothes in GAP stores. He faced heavy criticism online for displaying “garbage bags” of products, but he announced won’t apologize For being innovative.
It’s only been over two years since Kanye and GAP announced their collaboration… but as it now appears, something has to change in order for it to continue for another two years.
