Yeezy Gap and Balenciaga have postponed the launch of their collaborative collection in light of Tuesday’s tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, which has left at least 21 dead and 16 injured. The collection, which has been marketed as combining the visions of Kanye West and Balenciaga’s creative director Demna, was expected to go live Wednesday morning. The launch has been pushed to Friday.
