Valentino fills in the GAP!

O.K….. Here are two names that I NEVER thought would be connected: Valentino as in THE HOUSE OF VALENTINO and GAP… as in (fall into the GAP)! I know!!!  Who knew???

First question is: Why??? Here’s the dish: To celebrate Gap’s first store openings in Italy, the US clothing retailer has collaborated with Italian fashion house Valentino for a capsule collection of seven styles. The items became available in the UK and Colette right after Thanksgiving.  Rumor had it that the collection was only available in Europe BUT sources now say that the pieces will be available online for US customers.(I guess it’s either that or eBay).

Designed by Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, the one-off collection infuses Gap’s utilitarian basics with Valentino’s signature flower-like ruffles, flounces and bows.
