The designers are:

3.1 Phillip Lim— rising asian talent and CFDA Swarovski Award winner
“I’ve always been a fan of the classics and I love everything iconic. My motto is when in doubt just choose good style and Gap to me is synonymous with that. Gap represents American iconic dressing and just to have the chance to design three white shirts and having my take on it was so fun.”
Created… a tie-neck shirt, a bell-sleeve ruched shirt and a layered sleeve top, all at $78.

Band of Outsiders— an LA label founded by Scott Sternberg
“I think the Gap for me growing up was this sort of depot of great jeans, great sweaters; just the best basics that were out there so I was just trying to create something that felt very easy but fresh and modern.”
Created… a patchwork tunic for $88.

Michael Bastian— recently appointed as creative director of Bill Blass menswear
“I’m so proud to be able to do this with Gap — to be the first Men’s designer to do a shirt for men, as well as being able to design my first piece ever for women, is amazing!”
created… an epaulet and a Western shirt for men, both at $78.

Threeasfour— founded by three young designers Gabi, Adi and Ange
“We were looking to find a balance of the three major elements involved: white poplin, Gap and Threeasfour. We chose to do an easy summer dress and a little asymmetric top that translate our signature seaming and vision [for] a wider audience.”
created… a camisole for $78 and a cutaway dress for $88.

Definitely looking forward to Phillip Lim’s because I am a big fan of his designs. See how he took up half of the ad page? He is probably the biggest name out of all to be in this collaboration.

Yes I want a piece of him at $78!

    I just hope the clothes aren’t made by children in India anymore.

    How successful was last year’s designer GAP collection by Doo Ri, Rodarte, etc.?

    Love the dress by Three as Four.
