IsabelMarantxGap1 405x540 Gap x Isabel Marant T Shirt

Given its sad state of business affairs, it’s always suprising to see some of the a-list names Gap is able to rope into collabos. This time it’s the ultra-cult label Isabel Marant, which got together with Gap on a t-shirt, with 50 percent of funds dedicated to helping to eliminate AIDs in Africa. Via Thecut.

Colette X Gap: What’s Left?

11 September 2008, 05.28 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Gadgets, Shoes, Sneakers, Stores | No comments »

I popped by the ColetteXGap store earlier today to see what all the hype was about. There wasn’t tons of people in there–as you can see from the images–but the people who were there all seemed fairly fashionable. The space was smaller than I expected, as was the number of product offerings, but I’m guessing this is a quality over quantity situation. As well, there isn’t much there that’s cheap and some things, like a $24 bottle of blue nail polish, caused me some to mentally reach for my heart Frand-Sanford style. But oh well, it’s Colette so it’s worth it, right?

ColetteXGap 004 01 Colette X Gap: Whats Left?

So what’s left? I’m told that certain things like the Longchamp bags are sold out and will NOT be returning. There’s less certainty about other items. For example, the Claw collabo tee was there and is now gone (sob!), but the women working the register weren’t positive if those would be restocked. They said there was a new shipment coming that evening, but they had no idea what it would include. And while it was quiet there on a Wednesday evening, no doubt it will get quite packed on the weekend. One employee told me that on the first day when she arrived there was a line around the block and it was still there when she left not long before closing.

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!
