Last week, one of my favorite all-time brands, Gap, unveiled its Spring/Summer 2012 collection very aptly named “Be Bright.” Held at Shades at the Dubai Marina Address, we got a glimpse at the upcoming trends for this spring/summer season.
My pick of this collection has to be the brightly colored jeans and khakis – available in 2 styles (Skinny Cropped Jeans or Broken-In Straight Khakis) and in a range of colors including fuschia, surf pipe, lilac, rose, hot coral, active blue, dried fig, greenway and blue sky. Yep you can now wear the Crayola denimwear collection!
I’m also partial to shirt dresses, which can work great for the office or evenings out on the town. You can get them in the classic Chambray Bib Shirt Dress or a Denim Shirt Dress.
Gap also did a great job with the menswear range and I recommend the men in your lives embrace color this season with blue or red Slim Fit jeans.
And in case you haven’t already embraced the nautical trend, stripes are back – for both men and women!
While Gap has always been a strong brand in the United States, it’s great to see them rapidly expanding in the Middle East. They recently opened a new branch in Ibn Battuta Mall and a new store will be opening in Mall of Emirates very soon. So go check out the Gap collection and add a helping of “Bright” to your spring wardrobes!
Thank you again to Mona from Al Tayer for the lovely event.
Dollz Tip: If you are a curvy girl like me, I highly recommend you check-out their “Perfect Trouser” range – they fit like a dream and the pinstripe fabric makes you look slimmer!
