Kanye West’s first Gap collaboration sells out within hours on his 44th birthday

Published

Gap unveiled the first item in its highly anticipated collaboration with Kanye West on Tuesday.

The San Francisco–based clothing retailer shared a striking baby blue jacket featuring no zipper to coincide with the rap superstar’s 44th birthday.

But many fans eager to snap up the pricey jacket were left disappointed after it sold out within only a few hours.

Gone! Gap unveiled its first collaboration with Kanye West’s Yeezy brand on Tuesday for his 44th birthday, only for it to sell out within a few hours 

Intersting: Kanye wore the jacket in Los Angeles prior to its official unveiling last week, while pairing it with an eerie balaclava with small breathing holes punched out on the front and illustrations of Jesus

The lustrous blue jacket won’t be ready for some time, but lucky shoppers were able to preorder it shortly after it appeared at the top of the Gap homepage.

The shiny coat looked thick and toasty in photos shared by the brand online, though it may not be practical for particularly chilly locations as there’s no zipper to hold it closed. 

The item is described as a ’round’ jacket and likely signaled that consumers and fans of Kanye are primed to snap up his Yeezy collaborations with Gap.

The coat sold for $200, making it considerably more expensive than the brand’s average jacket price.

Its manufactured from recycled nylon and is set to start shipping in the fall of this year.

Trailblazer: The rapper turned fashion designer is seen in Paris in March 2020

So far, neither Kanye nor Gap have announced a follow-up release to the coat, though the brand’s website allows those who missed out on it to input their clothing sizes and sign up for notifications of future products.

The clothing collaboration was first announced in June of last year, with Gap advertising that its Yeezy items would be ‘modern, elevated basics for men, women and kids at accessible price points.’

The Jesus walks rapper will even extend his ‘design vision’ to how his clothing is displayed in stores, according to The New York Times

Homage: Last year, Kanye announced the partnership by unveiling a new, slightly asymmetrical Yeezy logo in the style of the classic Gap logo

A source close to the negotiations said that the two parties had launched a 10-year deal which can be renewed after five years.

Gap, which earned $4.6 billion in 2019, is reportedly hoping the collaboration with Kanye could earn it an additional $1 billion.

It seems like a solid match for the musician, who once worked at a Gap location and told Style.com in 2015 that he would ‘like to be the Steve Jobs of the Gap.’

Still affectionate: Kanye wife Kim Kardashian, 40, filed for divorce back in February, but even amid their marital turmoil she shared a sweet birthday tribute to her soon-to-be ex-husband

Kanye wife Kim Kardashian, 40, filed for divorce back in February, but even amid their marital turmoil she shared a sweet birthday tribute to her soon-to-be ex-husband.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made it a family affair as she shared a throwback photo of the two adults with their three eldest children, North, seven, Saint, five, and Chicago, three, who was only a baby in the picture taken aboard a private jet. 

The photo appeared to have been snapped before two-year-old Psalm West had even been born.

‘Love U for Life!’ Kim gushed in her short caption after wishing the Monster rapper a happy birthday.

A more recent photo showed Kanye being a doting father to his four children. He leaned down to help Psalm stand up for the photo and showed off a joyous grin 

Kim also included a cute photo of him in a red sweater that was snapped in 1987, when he would have been around 10 years old.

Better times: Khloé Kardashian shared a playful photo of herself and her partner Tristan Thompson standing up to their midriffs in cool blue water just off a tropical shore

Khloé Kardashian and Kris Jenner were among the other family members wishing Kanye a happy birthday.

‘Happy Birthday Happy birthday to my brother for life!!! Have the best birthday Ye! Sending you love and endless blessings!!’ wrote Khloe, 36.

She shared a playful photo of herself and her partner Tristan Thompson standing up to their midriffs in cool blue water just off a tropical shore.

For her tribute, Kim and Khloé’s mother Kris shared an older photo of herself walking with Kanye, who wore a sparkling white sequined jacket, as they held hands.

Happy Birthday #kanyewest!!’ she wrote.

Malin Andersson says trolling over her appearance on Love Island drove her to get plastic surgery

Malin Andersson has said that trolling over her appearance on Love Island drove her to get plastic surgery as her ‘self-esteem plummeted completely’.

The body positivity activist, 28, who appeared on the 2016 series of the ITV2 dating show, recalled that she tried to put a ‘brave face’ on during the difficult time but secretly she was ‘dying inside’.

Malin admitted that after appearing on Love Island, she felt as though she had to change her ‘whole f***ing appearance’, and she received liposuction and a breast uplift in Turkey – which only acted as a ‘band aid’. 

Upsetting: Malin Andersson has said that trolling over her appearance on Love Island drove her to get plastic surgery as her ‘self-esteem plummeted completely’ (pictured in May)

Talking on Lookfantastic’s new YouTube channel series, Fearless, the reality star, who battled an eating disorder before joining the ITV2 villa, said: ‘It was overwhelming when I saw the trolling about my appearance.

‘That added fuel to the fire and when I came out I thought, “Right, I’ve got to change my whole f***ing appearance, I need to get this done and that done.” My self-esteem plummeted completely. 

‘Even though you put on a brave face and you’re on social media trying to pretend you’re living the high life, actually you’re dying inside. It’s all a farce, it’s absolute bull***t.

‘I booked myself into Turkey and went for a bit of lipo and a breast uplift. But having that done didn’t solve anything that was going on in my head. It’s just a band aid.’ 

Difficult time: The body positivity activist, 28, who appeared on the 2016 series of the ITV2 dating show, recalled that she tried to put a ‘brave face’ on during the difficult time but secretly she was ‘dying inside’ (pictured on Love Island in 2016)

Malin said that after appearing on Love Island she was a ‘lost little soul’ and ‘fell into a really dark place’ as she didn’t have a ‘real job’ and she faced devastating family news.

During this time, the reality star’s beloved mother’s, who had battled breast cancer before, cancer returned and spread to her stomach. She tragically died aged 65 in November 2017.  

Malin said: ‘I was in denial about her becoming ill again, “Oh, she will be fine, she will be fine.” I am in the party scene, trying to stay relevant. 

‘It was so f**king embarrassing, I had no real job – I was just promoting bulls**t products trying to get dough. 

Scrutiny: Malin admitted that after appearing on Love Island, she felt as though she had to change her ‘whole f***ing appearance’, and she received liposuction and a breast uplift in Turkey – which only acted as a ‘band aid’ (pictured one year after Love Island) 

‘To everyone else, you’re living a really cool lifestyle, but you’re suffering. I was suffering, I’m living at home with my mum still, who was getting ill.

‘No one actually sees what goes on behind-the-scenes properly, but you can’t blame them. You’re not sharing that part of your life and that’s why social media is very dishonest and you have to be really brave to share parts of your life – it’s not easy.’

Malin added: ‘I was such a lost little soul. I didn’t know what I was doing with my life career wise, work wise, family, everything was kind of slipping out my hands. I fell into a really dark place, the lowest I’d been to be fair.’

The reality star faced more tragedy as her baby girl Consy tragically died with a heart defect in January 2019, just one month after being delivered at 33 weeks. 

Tragic: During this time, the reality star’s beloved mother’s, who had battled breast cancer before, cancer returned and spread to her stomach. She tragically died aged 65 in November 2017 

Malin’s ex Tom Kemp was then sentenced to 10 months in prison last September after he admitted to assaulting the reality star, which left her with a broken her hand. 

Tom was released in December after three months and will serve the rest of his term on Home Detention Curfew.

During the candid video, Malin said that the ‘lowest’ point in her life was when she lost her baby girl Consy.

She added: ‘It’s weird, when you go through trauma, you wonder why it happens to you but it makes sense afterwards and that’s what I’ve taken from it all. I have to take a step back and view my life as a whole, and it makes sense.’

Heartache: The reality star faced more tragedy as her baby girl Consy tragically died with a heart defect in January 2019, just one month after being delivered at 33 weeks

Malin continued: ‘Talking about things I’ve gone through, even though it’s painful, I know it can help someone else.

‘The advice I’d give to anybody who has suffered what I’ve gone through, whether it’s eating disorders, or you’re stuck in a violent relationship or you’ve lost a child… everything interlinks, in that you need hope and perseverance.’

Malin added: ‘You yourself, you need hope, hope that things will get better and they do get better.’   

If you are a victim of domestic abuse, call Refuge’s freephone, 24-hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247.

Anyone affected by the death of a baby who wants to talk about their experience can call Sands on 0808 164 3332 or email helpline@sands.org.uk.

Osher Günsberg says that he would return to host a new season of Australian Idol on one condition – that presenter and hosting bud James Mathieson also returned.

Osher, 47, made his feelings known in an Instagram Q&A on Tuesday night, where he was asked by a follower if he would return to the hit show.

‘Yeah, absolutely, you kidding me?’ he remarked. ‘It’s one of the best jobs I’ve had in my life. It was amazing.’

He then added that he would only return if James returned as well.

‘I’d only do it if Jimmy got to be there too,’ he said. 

Osher and James hosted the renowned Network Ten show together for the first six seasons – beginning in 2003.

James then departed the show, leaving Osher to co-host with singer Ricki-Lee Coulter for the seventh and final season.  

The show was then subsequently cancelled by Channel Ten in 2010 due to poor ratings.

However, the Seven Network announced in October 2020 that they will be reviving the series and aiming for a 2022 release. 

Making a comeback: Osher hosted the final series with singer Ricki-Lee Coulter before it was canned in 2010. The Seven Network has since announced a new season has been planned for a 2022 release

Singers Delta Goodrem, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Marcia Hines and Keith Urban are just some of the names that are being considered to be potential judges for the reboot.

No news has been released about who will host the new series. 

On Wednesday Seven denied a recent rumour that the show had been axed, with the reboot season still listed on their 2022 prime time line-up. 

Who’s coming back?: Delta Goodrem, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Marcia Hines and Keith Urban are just some of the names that are being considered to be potential judges for the reboot season. No news has been released about who will host the new series
