GAP presents SS2012 collection in Dubai
Over the past few weeks of hibernation, finally there was a fashion show that prompted us to socialize and celebrate. Friends from Gap recently presented the American favorite brand’s Spring Summer’12 collection.
Despite the chilly weather, the chic venue Shades at The Address, Dubai Marina created a perfect backdrop to the colourful fashion show.
Every element at the venue reflected the ‘Be Bright’ spirit of the Gap collection with neon colored moon lights scattered along side the well-lit pool. Guests enjoyed a fine selection of canapés and cocktails while watching the models present the key pieces from the collection.

The women’s collection bursts with color in variety of brightly hued jeans and khakis, including the Always Skinny Cropped Jean in fuchsia, surf pipe, lilac and rose and the Broken-In Straight Khakis in hot coral, active blue, dried fig, greenway and blue sky.
The men’s collection also incorporates color into jeans and khakis with the Slim Fit Jeans in French blue and red and the Denim-Washed Garment Dye Khakis in deep cobalt, cedar green, red rose and vintage wine. Men will also find color-infused tops, sweaters, and outerwear that can be easily layered to create perfect springtime looks. The boyfriend khaki denim roll short come in a bold palette of lemon drop, leaf green and surf blue. Trendy accessories for men include coloured leather flip-flops.
At the core of the collection, lies the t-shirt, the original American sportswear piece, in every possible interpretation, the foundation of a complete Summer wardrobe. The classic tee is offered in a spectrum of colours; the fluid ease of an oversized shape; the modernity of contrast colour blocking; the classicism of Breton stripes in a host of colours; the graphic punctuation of chevrons. The new tee dress, in easy to wear floor length jersey; the tank dress and playsuits all work in perfect harmony to create a line that is fresh, chic and incredibly comfortable.
With the launch of the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Gap embraces colour in every shade, shape and form. Tops, bottoms and accessories are brought to life in a wide range of luscious colours that instantly brighten your wardrobe. It’s colour shown off in a sophisticated way – whether it’s contrasting or tone-on-tone, mixed, matched or striped, color has been elevated in a singularly Gap way.
