Gap Fall 2011 Preview

Gap Fall 2011 Preview

Wide leg pants were a passing fad for the Gap.  Cropped and skinny pants dominated the Gap Fall 2011 preview. There are a lot of leather looking pieces that are to give the look of leather for less. Sexy is a keyword I’m hearing a lot from Gap staff. Sexy is not a word that I associate with the Gap. Utilitarian and adaptable is what pops into my head. That’s probably not what they want to hear, ha. Some of my favourite pieces are the Light Grey Biker Knit Jacket and the Steel Grey Oversized Knit Cardigan.  There were a lot of cute jackets too.

I didn’t see any interesting shoes at the preview. Seems nothing is going to top the amazing Fall 2010 platform boots I love. I’m never blown away by Gap previews but I always find something to love when the season hits because the collection is so large.

Edit: I originally wrote this post before Patrick Robinson’s exit from the Gap. It will be interesting to see who they bring into the company. The Gap has a direction problem, it needs to decide what kind of brand it is. It will be fascinating to watch the Gap this year and what decision the company makes.
