GAP is coming to town!
Posted August 5, 2006on:
Earlier this year, we were greeted with news that American department store GAP is opening up its doors to us here. Then a few days back, there was more news about this. Read on:
Luxury retailer FJ Benjamin is opening US clothing chain Gap’s first flagship store in Asia outside Japan at Wisma Atria in December.
The store is one of three Gap stores to be opened in Singapore between October and December.
The other two outlets will be located at Centrepoint and Vivo City.
FJ Benjamin clinched the Gap franchise for Singapore and Malaysia earlier this year.
It says the stores will take on a new design currently being rolled-out in the US.
The flagship store will occupy about 9,000 square feet on the ground floor of Wisma Atria.
It will house the complete Gap collection of apparel for men, ladies, children and infants.
FJ Benjamin will also open four Gap stores in Malaysia in the last quarter of this year.
Wow, great news! 🙂 I’ve heard of their great-fitting jeans at affordable prices. And last year, I remembered us Snowy sisters going crazy after their mini hobo trench collection. For the record, SW has the one in purple while I made do with the multi-coloured one.
Anyways, I was browsing thru the GAP webbie awhile ago and found these great-looking jeans. I like the wash on both of these. Of course, I could go and try them on soon enough to see if the cutting flatters me 😉
This is called the Flare Original. I love the little whiskering at the thighs and the faded wash at the knees. And if you observe closely, the wash becomes darker at the bottom. I don’t know how practical this is gonna be at covering fleshy thighs, though.
The next one is called the Flare Curvy. A more practical alternative to the above, I suppose. The wash is conveniently darker at the thighs and bottom area, leaving enough washed-out look at the knees and hey, the whiskerings are a wee bit more obvious here, don’t you think?
Oh wells, I can’t wait till our semester vacation this December, then! (And to think school hasn’t even started 😉 )
