Kanye West’s Coachella merchandise has raised a few eyebrows.
West took his ‘Sunday Service’ to Coachella on Easter and to commemorate the event, he created a special range of merchandise for festival goers.
These “church clothes” included sweats and socks in muted colors inspired by his cult label, Yeezy. The sweaters were plastered with the phrase “Holy Spirit” while the socks were displayed with the tag line, “Jesus Walks.” However, these garments came with an unholy price tag.
The socks cost US$50 while the outerwear would set you back US$225. Naturally, social media users had a lot to say about West seemingly profiting off a religious celebration, pointing out how West “wants to be taken seriously as a designer,” but always created “clothes with no artistic value” while using his name to “sell overpriced merch.”

A $2 t-shirt with $4 screen printing. $70 for a $6 product?— Egghead Jones (@stanky4goats) April 21, 2019
Yeah agree. It all comes across as a massive afterthought. Like they’ve remembered approx 2 hours before Sunday Service they could make bank with merch. So they made a stop to Walmart for some Gildan shirts and socks, & created the design scrolling through random fonts on Word😂— Nicole (@nicoleyama918) April 21, 2019
One day we’re gonna talk about how Kanye wants to be taken seriously as a designer but continually makes clothes with no artistic value and relies heavily on his name to sell overpriced merch 🤷🏾♂️ https://t.co/vjkgJe71io— Jared (@WifiWinston_) April 21, 2019
