Gap’s Fall 2021 collection focuses on ‘individuals’

GAP continues to champion modern American optimism by celebrating individuals who represent the positive impact of being their true self. Gap’s Fall 2021 INDIVIDUALS adult platform is fueled by nostalgic fashion, with Gap essentials made iconic in the 1990s, reinvented for today, including new loose, relaxed fits in denim and khakis, hoodies, crisp white and plaid button-downs, and transitional outerwear. Fall 2021’s denims offer jeans that fit and flatter every body. The women’s line reintroduces the Vintage slim, formerly known as the cigarette. Fitted through the hip and thigh with ankle-skimming that hits above or at the ankle, it’s sleek and slim but not as tight as jegging and skinny fits. Also available in High Rise Fit. The men’s line has the Relax Taper Fit with five-pocket styling in stretch denim for extra flexibility and comfort. These denims are part of Gap’s water-saving Washwell program that uses at least 20% less water than conventional wash methods. Fan favorite Fit Tech for Men’s shirts now are loaded with cool details and innovations such as hidden pockets and more. Created with recycled poly and organic cotton, this season’s performance pieces are made with moisture-wicking fabric and dissolvable mesh, making them breathable. As an added extra, pieces are also made of ionic plus fabrication to help fight odor. Men’s Gap Fit is exclusive at gap.com.ph. Meanwhile, VIP customers can enjoy an extra 10% off on top of primary promos. Plus, Welcome and Milestone vouchers can also be used on regular-priced and promo items. Customers get P10 off when they bring their own paper bag when shopping at Gap. For more information on the new collection including teens and children’s clothing, visit www.gapinc.com.
