Bridging the GAP with Valentino

Bridging the Gap between high end and mid range is the latest collaboration between Gap and Valentino.  Since the H&M X Lanvin collection has sold out, I’m sure this collaboration presents fantastic opportunities to blur the lines between artisan and utilitarian.

Looking at the images from the GAP X Valentino collection sure proved this point:

I absolutely love this piece. There’s such an edge to it, yet at the same time, a touch of softness created through the layered frills. 

The direction is constant with a styling directive of basic pieces mixed with a few statement pieces with a twist.

The whole look is very militarian though, I do wish there were more colours because right now, the colour palette is rather solemn.

A good start nonetheless. Cheers to more collaborations to come!
