The first sighting of this “UniverseCity Jacket” was on the Kanye West Bear on Takashi Murakami’s album art for “Graduation” and the “Good Morning” animated music video. Recently a physical version of the jacket was seen worn by Kanye West himself during a performance. The colorway of the jacket differs from that of the animated version, but features the same details in lettering and imagery on the front, sleeves, and back. No word on availability of this item, but our best guess would be that it will be part of the Pastelle collection.
