The Gap is Trés Cool with Carine

There are just so many things that Gap is getting right these days:

Patrick Robinson, Vice-President of Design, expert on all things denim, and the current darling of the industry (check out the August spreads in Glamour and Nylon). Plus, he’s totally cute.

The white shirts, particularly the spring collaboration by all of our favorite masterminds like Phillip Lim, Band of Outsiders, Michael Bastian, Philip Crangi and ThreeAsFour.

The recent European collection. Pierre Hardy shoes, Balenciaga influence, need we say more?

And of course, the ads. Division Street just posted nine from the fall 2008 Collection, including shots of regulars Chanel and Lily, as well as the much-anticipated faces of Clemence Poesy, Georgina Chapman, and Cecilia Dean.

But one ad caught us off guard – Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. As in, the gorgeous offspring of Carine Roitfeld, the exclusively edgy, unapologetically fashionable editor of French Vogue. Simply put, the coolest woman in the world.

Maybe this means that Carine loves Gap as much as we do!

Now go on now, fall back into the Gap.
