Before You Go

According to reports, Kanyeโ€™s Yeezy brand will now land in stores across the globe. While details are still scarce, the partnership will introduce fans to Yeezy Gap with gear aimed at men, women and children.

The deal is a multiyear partnership, according to a Yeezy spokesperson. West has been traveling to Gapโ€™s San Francisco headquarters from his ranch in Wyoming to work on the line, which is still in its design phase, the spokesperson said. The line wonโ€™t include footwear, a market in which Yeezy already collaborates with Adidas AG. (Bloomberg)
