All you fashionista out there might have already heard that 200 GAP stores out of 900 will be closed by 2013. 200 stores. GAP, in my opinion, is a brand that has its own identity and a lot of the time it doesn't follow the trends which I do admire. As of last year, GAP did a collaboration with Italian couture house Valentino and the outcome was signature GAP designs with ruffles, mostly blouses and shirts. From my point of view, GAP designs are more or less on the line of minimalism, which you can wear with comfort. A lot of people get mixed up with GAP clothes as being workwear and too mature for teenagers, which I totally disagree!
From above, you can see a cropped white shirt from GAP with a playful splitted end in the middle at the back. I honestly love the back of that shirt, it might be a plain white shirt but with a splitted end like that? We are talking about an investment now. We might have a lot of denim shirts already from last summer but, a sleeveless dark denim shirt is completely different from the ones we bought last year!
