What Would You Buy From Gap’s ’90s Reissue Collection?
Everyone roots for the Gap. We grew up with it in the 1990s, and remember when Madonna and Missy Elliot fronted the campaigns. Unfortunately, in recent years, the Gap has lost its luster, and many people were wondering why it didn’t revert to its ’90s heyday. That is, until yesterday, when it announced a limited-edition collection of ‘90s Re-issue Limited Collection of jeans, khakis, pocket tees, and the iconic Gap logo hoodie we all loved from our school days.
We know how cute Naomi, Rumer, and company all look in the ads, but what exactly would we want from the collection? Let’s take a closer look at the clothes, to see if we still have the original, or if we need the updated version!
I had thought that buying a gray zip hoodie from the Gap is as easy as finding someone opposing Trump in NYC, but how wrong I was! In 2017, Gap carries every kind of gray zip hoodie, from logo, to floral to French-terry logo and even a sherpa-style zip hoodie — that is, everything but a classic, soft cotton, plain gray, zip-up hoodie. So this is a must-buy when it comes back in stock on Feb. 7, because who knows when it will come back again if we miss it this time around!
Naomi Campbell would make a polyester sack look cool, so she truly does wonders for Gap’s classic pocket tee. Surely there is a plain white pocket T-shirt in the 2017 version of Gap?! Apparently, unless you are a boy and under the age of 14, you’re out of luck! Gap seems to think that we ladies prefer our T-shirts to either have a floral print plastered all over, or a logo on the front that tells the world we need a nap, coffee, love, to surf, victory or love again (but in French). So yes, it took Naomi in a plain white cotton pocket T-shirt for the company to realize they should never have messed with a classic!
The iconic leather jacket looks like it belongs more to Saint-Laurent than to Gap, and that is a good sign! On Gordon, the jacket seems to fit perfectly, and hits her on the lower waist. Paired with a black T-shirt and black jeans, this outfit truly looks cool! I was never a kid who spent more than $40 at Gap, so if this leather jacket is over $40 (which I think it might be), I guess it is time for me to go into a Gap again and see for myself.
