What: GAP is willing to do everything in their power to bring the company back from their numerous fashion fails. Since Patrick Robertson signed on as VP of design they have revamped their entire jean line (which was pretty good) and now they are launching the men and women’s premium pant collection, which will hit stores in August.
According to WWD: VP of design Patrick Robinson said, the last six months have been devoted to perfecting fit and fabric development so that “everything looks like it costs four to five times the price,” which is $49.50 to $59.50. Anchored in tailoring, the seven women’s fits range from the Really Skinny to a slouchy Boyfit to a flared leg trouser style and the Curvy fit for fuller figures, and will be merchandised with a selection of filmy white blouses, cashmere sweaters, shearling and leather aviator jackets, as well as Pierre Hardy for Gap lace-up, peep-toe wedges.
What We Say: Anything would be better than those unflattering hip slung pants they have been pushing on us. What ever happened to the good old bootcut pant that flattered just about every shape? Patrick Robinson has a good track record so we do have faith that the new pant collection will look and fit better than what they have now.
