It’s no secret we – and all of Hollywood, from Elle Macpherson to Leighton Meester – have spent the last several months LIVING in our khakis and parkas but never did we expect our casual down-time duds to get such a glam makeover!
Luckily, the geniuses at Gap are always one step ahead of us. The high street giant has teamed up with legendary Italian couture house Valentino to issue an exclusive seven-piece collection to celebrate Gap’s arrival on the Italian scene (the first ever shop opened in Milan last week) comprising a gorgeously-ruffled parka, a multi-frilled cropped jacket, a scalloped sweatshirt and a beribboned pair of khakis that are the perfect fusion of masculine/feminine.
And we in the UK are reaping the benefits, too! Pick up your girly utilitarian must-haves at London’s Gap flagship store on Oxford Street or Dover Street Market from 27 November. Thanks to design duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccoli, the impossible has been achieved – feeling comfy and looking dressy at the same time.
