Collette X Gap: Opposites Attract??

04 September 2008, 18.28 | Posted in Design, Fashion, Stores | No comments »

There’s a ton of excitement around the fashion blogosphere over the arrival of Collette in New York. According to the ColleteXGap web site, the beloved French boutique will create a "one-month installation (09-06 to 10-05) in Gap’s rotating store," adjacent to its 54th & 5th Ave. flagship stores. No doubt there will be lots of fantastic merchandise, but from what I can see so far the Paris/New York collabo tees will be a highlight. Below is a screen grab of one featuring Paris stencil artist Miss Tic and N.Y. graff artists and designer Claw Money.

GapClaw   01 Collette X Gap: Opposites Attract??

My only issue with this collabo is, why freaking Gap?? That chain sucks and has for a long-long time. Seriously, if you don’t believe me, ask yourself when the last time was you shopped there for anything other than a pair of cotton panties? So the question arises, is Collete powerful enough to restore some modicum of hipness to Gap or will the ultra-slick French Mademoiselle get dragged down by the big plain chain’s doofiness?? Because while it’s true that opposites attract, the fact is that as a pair they’re not always attractive!
