Balenciaga Quietly Severs Relationship with Kanye West – Removing Yeezy Gap Collab from Website

UPDATE 10/21/2022: Balenciaga has cut ties with Kanye West and has released the following statement:

“Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist [Kanye West].” See New Story

Yesterday’s original story is below.

Balenciaga seems to finally have reached the limit of what they’ll tolerate in a partner, severing ties quietly with Kanye West.

Instead of issuing a statement, the fashion company opted to remove any signs of association with Ye and Yeezy from all of the websites they have control of.

For the 2023 spring presentation, Vogue removed Ye’s look (his modeling debut) and replaced it with a caption reading, “this slideshow has been edited.”

The Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga has been removed from the website, along with Luisaviaroma and Farfetch.

All of this comes after Ye upped his anti-Semitic rhetoric and refused to apologize, earning him bans from multiple social media platforms and condemnation in the media.
