It saddens us to report that over the weekend, the very Gap Holiday Campaign we heaped praise on recently for its socially-minded message, has been vandalized. Furthermore, the model targeted was Indian-American jewelry designer Waris Ahluwalia, whom we spoke with just last week.
The holidays are our favorite time of the year, and yet, after the first Jared commercial we’re ready to boycott all advertisements for fear of transforming into the Grinch’s second-coming. Fortunately, we take solace in the fact that Gap has, yet again, come up with a charming, socially-minded campaign to lift our spirits.
Funnily enough, our utopia would not include Glenn Beck.
Even though she has yet to show any hint of a baby bump, speculation about Kate Middleton‘s maternity wear is going strong. Well, now we know at least one article of clothing that the mom-to-be is on the lookout for, and it’s just as practical as you might expect from a Duchess who swipes her Starbucks card for her morning latté, makes trips to the grocery store, and carries around a stack of points cards while shopping on the high street: jeggings.
2013 marks a fresh new start for Intermix as it’s just been announced that Gap has bought the San Franciso-based boutique chain for a cool $130 million.
Luxury chain Intermix is looking for someone to help expand its platform, and it looks like retail giant Gap Inc. might be just the firm to to do it.
Do you find the names Ali Ro and A+RO for two totally unrelated fashion labels a little too close for comfort? Donna Morgan LLC certainly does. As the owners of Ali Ro, a contemporary line founded in 2007, the company is now suing a whole slew of retailers and manufacturers involved with selling products under the label A+RO.
As I walked into the Gap on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, I was greeted by a table of arts and crafts materials and a line of guests waiting to get their old jeans customized by Nylon‘s Dani Stahl and her crew. Definitely not your average evening at the Gap store.
It looks like Gap is already making good on their promise to step up their image. Not content with merely adding more color to their shelves, however, they’re also adding a little diversity to their campaigns with a new ad featuring a very cute gay couple next to the slogan “Be One.”
While J Crew has been gaining momentum over the last decade as a contemporary retail force to be reckoned with, sales at the Gap have been steadily lagging. All is not lost for the struggling company, however, if we are to believe the latest report from the New York Times.

Gap has been a brand in crisis for quite some time now, but it appears as though they’re mounting a comeback.
We’re big online shoppers (drunk or not), so we know a thing or two about e-commerce customer service. For one: Amazon is great.
Are you ready to dress your kids up in pint-sized wrap dresses and cheerful prints? Are you ready to do so with Diane von Furstenberg designs at Gap prices? The retail giant may be in trouble, but the rumored DVF/GapKids collaboration has us very, very excited.
Gap is in trouble. In a matter of months, both the company’s president Marka Hansen and creative director Patrick Robinson have been given the boot. Management changes aren’t the only thing the retailer is doing in an effort to turn itself around. Gap has just launched a name-your-own-price website — GapMyPrice.com — and it’s predicated on an interesting concept.
We weren’t exactly what you’d called shocked yesterday when Gap fired its best-known designer, Patrick Robinson. But retail insiders pulled no punches when they were asked to comment on the staff change, and said that while Robinson might not have made the biggest splash with customers, he’s not exclusively to blame for the brand’s lackluster performance over the past several years.
Patrick Robinson was fashion’s ultimate rising star just a few short years ago when he was hired at The Gap. But after seasons of lackluster sales, the American megabrand has decided to fire him.
