Hey Look, Walter White Jr. Is Modeling For GAP!

Hey Look, It's Walter White Jr. In A GAP Ad!

Yesterday, I was perusing Gap.com and lo and behold, who did I see? A seriously gorgeous male model who, upon closer inspection, I realized was Walter White Jr., aka Flynn, aka RJ Mitte from “Breaking Bad”! My loins haven’t been this confused since I found myself having a sex dream about Kevin Spacey/Frank Underwood in “House of Cards.”

GAP Rallies Around Sikh Model After Ad Was Defaced By Racist Graffiti

Gap Ad Racist Graffiti

GAP’s #MakeLove ad campaign features a variety of diverse models, including Sikh actor and designer Waris Ahluwalia, who appears in a simple, beautiful portrait with illustrator Quentin Jones next to the words “Make Love.” The image appeared on billboards and in NYC subway stations, where unfortunately, the sight of Ahluwalia’s turban inspired some dim-witted vandals to deface the photo with racist graffiti. The word “love” was crossed out and replaced with “bombs,” and “Please stop driving taxis!” was scrawled in the white space. The defaced ad was spotted by a friend of Arsalan Iftikhar, a senior editor at The Islamic Monthly, who snapped the photo above. Iftikhar posted it to Twitter to show the world “how millions of brown people are viewed in America today.”

GAP responded the next day, asking Iftikhar to let them know the location of the vandalized ad so they could replace it. And then they did something really cool… Keep reading »

Awesomely Affordable: Summer Styles From GAP For $60 Or Less

The other day,I popped into the GAP and was pleasantly surprised by their summer collection, which is full of simple, streamlined pieces in bright colors and fun patterns. I especially loved their fresh take on the T-shirt dress and an epically fabulous sunhat that instantly made me feel like Sophia Loren.

Gap Launches New GapPure — But Will It Sell?

Gap is no longer the top of the mall fashion heap — but they’re hoping the launch of GapPure might help take up some of the slack they’ve lost. Seen as the natural extension of their GapBody line of underwear and yoga gear, GapPure consists of free-flowing slouchy separates — jersey-soft Ts and knits — meant to be your go-to weekend wear. How many times can Gap re-work the basic T-shirt, you ask? If GapPure is any indication, well, a lot.

But, at a price range of $24 to $68, will anybody buy? Can GapPure compete with the myriad loose-fitting Ts and tanks now available at the H&Ms, Uniqlos and American Apparels of the world — many of which cost half that?

Gap’s been floundering since creative director Patrick Robinson was fired in May 2011, and even before that, when their standard khakis and Ts seemed to have lost touch with a consumer now swimming in retail options. Will more low-end, no-risk apparel do the trick for the ailing company? [Fashionista]

The Only Pair Of Jeans You Need This Fall

Looking to expand your denim wardrobe without spending a ton of money? A pair of jeans that do triple duty, like Gap’s 1969 pintucked trouser jeans — part of their “LA Story” campaign — ought to do the trick. The high-waist and flared leg are totally on trend, the dark wash and trouser cut are office-appropriate, and, of course, denim can be styled to suit almost any occasion. Dress them up with heels and a cute top, go casual with boots and a sweater, and conduct serious biz by pairing them with a buttondown and blazer. One pair of jeans that go with everything? And did I mention they’re on sale? Yes please!

Gap Adds More Color & Washes — And Tacos — To Its Denim Collection

Gap has built its reputation around its classic denim jeans, but this fall, the retailer is shaking things up. The Gap 1969 collection will feature deep, saturated colors like the rust corduroy legging above. Gap has also developed unique washes. Its legging jean will be available in a gummy texture along with subtle camouflage and leopard prints. These definitely aren’t your regular blue jeans, but the corduroy leggings and legging jeans are just as affordable and comfortable. I lived in my Gap cords and black legging jeans last winter because they have just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable, but also hold their shapes.

Keep clicking to find out how you can enjoy tacos and get a dose of Gap’s premium denim. Keep reading »

Donate To Goodwill And Save At The Gap

It’s spring cleaning time! And if de-cluttering isn’t enough of an incentive to go through your closet and dresser drawers, then how about an awesome shopping discount? Gap and Goodwill have partnered up in support of the Donate Movement, “an effort powered by Goodwill to educate the public on the positive impacts donations can have on both people and the planet.” From May 19 to 29, Gap stores in the U.S. and Canada will accept used clothing donations that will be given to Goodwill Industries. In exchange for their donations, Gap customers will receive 30 percent off regularly-priced and sale merchandise! As any bargain shopper knows, Goodwill sells its donations in stores, but what you might not know is that 84 percent of the revenue generated supports job training programs across the U.S. and Canada. Donating to Goodwill also helps the environment by keeping discarded clothing out of landfills. Don’t you just love being rewarded for things you should do anyway, like helping your community?

Gap Introduces Gap My Price, A Puzzling New Name-Your-Own-Price Feature

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just name your price at retail stores, like on eBay? Now you can, sort of. Gap has introduce a new name-your-price feature — Gap My Price, which makes no sense, but whatever — where you tell the Gap’s website how much you’d be willing to pay for one of their 15 negotiable items of clothing and it makes a deal with you. It’s a cool idea, to be sure, but it’s also a head scratcher. This U-neck stripe tee retails for $19.95 and I offered $16. Gap My Price came back with an offer of $19. Then I offered $18. Gap My Price then said the final offer was $19. So … I could save a whopping 95 cents by clicking on their website a bunch of times? [Gap My Price] Keep reading »
