Nigerian-British designer Mowalola Ogunlesi will be the design director of Kanye West’s new Yeezy and Gap collaborative venture.
Ye initially announced the new partnership with Gap on Friday as Ogunlesi later took to Instagram to share the news.
The Yeezy Gap line’s anticipated 2021 launch will include men, women, and kids pieces. Ye’s deal is for 10 years, with a choice to renew after five.
Earlier this week, Kanye, Kim, and North wore Ogunlesi’s custom designs in the family’s Father’s Day photo.
Ogunlesi, who previously attended Central Saint Martins, had her London Fashion Week debut in 2019, where her aesthetic was typified by leather, cutout tops, and vibrant patterns.
She previously worked with Kelela, Steve Lacy, and Solange, and collaborated with Skepta on his music video, Pure Water.Follow us on social media
