Filling the Gap!

Today was the day that Gap entered the modern age and finally (finally!) introduced online shopping. A bit late in joining the shopping revolution but I have to confess to it being a welcome development.

I know Gap isn’t the sort of store that generally gets anyone very excited but season in, season out, they do have some lovely clothes amongst the logo’d t-shirts and hooded tops. I loved their ‘Design Editions’ ranges which were with some amazing US designers – including Rodarte, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Thakoon and Alexander Wang (although the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund is now partnering with J Crew on this project).

And for the past couple of years, Pierre Hardy has been designing a range of shoes for Gap (most of which are very, very high but I’ve picked up a few great flat sandals).

And as dull as it sounds, they are useful for basics, especially during sales time when they have great discounts.

I briefly mentioned before but Gap recently released a premium black trouser capsule collection, with styles (apparently) to suit everyone. I haven’t tried any of them yet but they are all priced well - £35-£45 - and I’m definitely tempted for the coming winter.

Black trousers aren’t an exciting item of clothing, they don’t fill us with exhilaration to buy them, but they are great to have in the wardrobe and when they fit well they are a good friend to womankind!

p.s. all of this also means that Banana Republic is set to enter the modern age too and will soon launch its new website:


  1. One thing to say - YAY!! About time... :-)

  2. I's taken them so frikkin long! I'm hoping they start putting the shoes on the site soon, as I love the Pierre Hardy collection!
