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!

Henrik Vibskov one of my  designer loves from Denmark partners with Quinny to create baby gear that allows you keep your style while you  take on the urban jungle with your little one…
