Gap goes Design

Gap is the khaki pants of fashion, the comfortable basic that everyone has in their closet. Now they have decided to join forces with up and coming deisngers for a line. Following in the footsteps of such retail/designer love connections Victor & Rolf + H&M, Stella + Adidas or Proenza + Target, it is only normal that Gap jumps on the "designers heart retail" bandwagon.
Winners of the 2006 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund have designed pieces based on the classic white shirt. Now you too can own a Rodarte, Doo.Ri or Thakoon for a fraction of the price.

I have yet to try the garments but I did see them in stores. The merchandising is simple, clean and...uim...pretty? But to be honest, the peices themselves look a bit iffy. I know that they are running out of some styles online. In any case, here are some pics for your enjoyment. If anyone has a chance to hit up the Gap for desinger wear, let me know.

So now that all these parnerships are being done, would it not be amazing to see Micheal Kors + Costa Blanca? OOhhh, think of the pretty pretty dresses!
