A common refrain after a bad purchase is, “May as well have thrown my money right in the garbage.” Fashionistas can now skip the middle man thanks to Gap, Yeezy and Balenciaga.
Watch this bland Brooklyn bedroom become a mid-century modern escape in just one day:
When Ye fans caught wind of the Yeezy and Gap collab, it wasn’t surprising they were excited. The hip-hop star’s coveted line quickly sells out, and a Gap collab could spell lower price points.
However, Yeezy fans showed up at the Gap to find that they had to basically dumpster dive through heaps of clothing shoved into giant black sacks that resembled trash bags, as shown in a tweet by user @jyarow.
This is how they are selling Yeezy GAP. 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 pic.twitter.com/GNd08Zv1zC

Ye claimed to be inspired by unhoused people. The clothes were in dumpsters and trash bags when the collection debuted last July.
Rifling through a garbage bag for new clothing is intended to draw parallels between the experiences of the unhoused and the consumer. Whether or not anyone is buying that is another story.
OMG I HOPE SO. We must go. I feel like this is a museum exhibit that must be gawked at

“Is this real I’m crying” one person responded.

“I couldn’t miss an opportunity to make the most expensive trash bag in the world, because who doesn’t love a fashion scandal?” Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia said.
