For this year’s Gap Design Edition collection, the retailer has teamed with CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners Albertus Swanepoel, Alexander Wang, and Vena Cava’s Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai. Instead of the plain white shirt, designers got the chance to revamp another Gap classic– the khaki! The resulting collection offers a variety of khaki pieces ranging from jackets to dresses to hats. Each piece reflects the designers’ creative visions while still retaining Gap’s classic, yet casual, aesthetic. Albertis Swanepoel, Alexander Wang and Vena Cava’s Lisa Mayock and Sophia Buhai join other CFDA winners who have collaborated with Gap including Doo-Ri Chung, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, Thakoon Panichgul Thakoon, Phillip Lim and Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders. This year’s Gap Design Edition collection will hit select Gap stores and online June 16 with prices ranging from $40 to $88. We can’t wait to get our hands on it. Tell us: What do you think of Gap’s designer Khaki collection?
