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.
