Kanye West's Gap debut is here.

On Tuesday, the rapper - who last year announced he was partnering with the mall brand to bring his luxury Yeezy label to the masses - unveiled his first release under the collaboration: a blue collared puffer made from recycled nylon. 

The Yeezy Gap Round Jacket retails for $200 is available for pre-order June 7 to be shipped later this fall. According to CNBC, the jacket already sold out early Tuesday morning, but a Yeezy Gap representative clarified to PEOPLE, despite long wait times or "Sold Out" messages on the site, the jacket is still available for pre-order.

The slightly cropped unisex design features an oversized fit and is seemingly meant to be worn completely open, as it comes sans zipper or buttons.

While other items from the collab have yet to be released, interested shoppers can get in line to pre-order the debut piece by answering sizing questions on the gap.com/yeezy landing page, before being directed to the jacket's "waiting room."

Shoppers can also check out a "floating projection" of the coat in select New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago locations starting June 7.

West's highly-anticipated Gap line marks the first time his Yeezy designs will be offered at an accessible price point.

West confirmed the partnership on Twitter last summer by sharing an image of the Gap logo modified to feature the letters "YZY." He wrote in all caps, "YEEZY AND GAP FORM PARTNERSHIP #WESTDAYEVER."

The deal also marks a full-circle moment for West, who worked in a Gap store as a teen growing up in Chicago and later stated in a 2015 interview that he would "like to be the Steve Jobs of the Gap."

The Yeezy Gap line is set to include a range of pieces for men, women and children.

"We are excited to welcome Kanye back to the Gap family as a creative visionary, building on the aesthetic and success of his YEEZY brand and together defining a next-level retail partnership," Mark Breitbard, Global Head of Gap Brand, said in a press release last year.

According to an announcement from Gap last year, West's creative vision will also be carried through to the Gap stores and digital channels once the collection launches to deliver a complete Yeezy experience for customers.
