Gap’s Printed Pointy Flats are great for spring and summer. I know it doesn’t feel like it, but the weather is going to be getting warmer soon. Try these out with some cropped denim or a cute skater dress. The Gap’s Printed Pointy Flats come in two different colored polka dot prints and two different colored leopard prints for $49.95. That’s cheap and chic. [SOURCE]

Pair this outfit with a white tee or a white button down and you will be set. This is the kind of outfit where you can switch the pants out for dress, keep the shoes and jacket, and again you will be set. I love outfits where you can find multiple uses for it. Plus the jacket gives you a classic Chanel type look that you can wear again and again. Photos from the various links below.

By now I’m sure you’ve heard the news that Patrick Robinson is out at The Gap. Most people were shocked to hear it but not surprised as the designer had never found his groove at one of the world’s most famous mall chains.
Robinson started out as a fashion phenomenon in the mid-nineties after graduating from The Parsons School of Design in New York City. He worked for Paco Rabanne, Perry Ellis, Anne Klein and Giorgio Armani (where he managed to make the line profitable and popular). He then went on to become a member of both the CFDA and Vogue’s 100 Rising Stars. He is also married to Vogue’s Virgina Smith.
There have been some updates to The Gap Logo Fail story. Apparently they are keeping the old logo for now and will update the blue square with a red square for the holidays. I wish they would just leave it alone. This is getting to be ridiculous. They should have just kept the old one.
From Ad Age:
In the meantime, the website will go back to our iconic blue box logo and, for Holiday, we’ll turn our blue box red for our seasonal campaign.
We’ve learned a lot in this process. And we are clear that we did not go about this in the right way. We recognize that we missed the opportunity to engage with the online community. This wasn’t the right project at the right time for crowd sourcing.
I really tried to ignore writing this post because I thought this was some kind of bad and really late April’s Fools joke, but it wasn’t. The Gap changed their logo and it is all kinds of fail. I mean super duper fail. It bombs. It sucks…hard…real hard. It looks like the Gap literally fell out of its blue cubed home.
Why they would change their logo to this crazy thing is beyond me. I know the Gap is still stuck in the 90s, as some say, but I do enjoy shopping their for basics. I think if they updated their basics with only a few trendy items, things would be good. I don’t really feel like they needed to change their whole logo.
This is what the Gap had to say about their new logo on their Facebook page. If you ask me, it is a bunch of BS. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Thanks for everyone’s input on the new logo! We’ve had the same logo for 20+ years, and this is just one of the things we’re changing. We know this logo created a lot of buzz and we’re thrilled to see passionate debates unfolding! So much so we’re asking you to share your designs. We love our version, but we’d like to… see other ideas. Stay tuned for details in the next few days on this crowd sourcing project.
