Gap | New York Shopping
Gap, an iconic retail brand, offers inventive American style. Clean, classic clothing and accessories help customers express their individual sense of style. Gap, which opened its first store more than 40 years ago, continues to build its brand presence around the world.
The brand has remained true to its classic American-casual style through constant corporate reinventions; witness celebrity spokespeople, pop music idols, and designers from top couture houses. While Gap follows more trends than it sets, it's great for well-fitting, reasonably priced, runway-inspired weekend or business-casual wear. Better still, the workmanship and fabrics hold up, for good-looking classics that span seasons, and spin cycles, with ease.
While the brand traditionally excelled at jeans and denim, khakis, cotton polos and pocket T-shirts, recent moves into of-the-moment flirty tops, classically pretty dresses and replicas of designer bags make fashionable street wear just as prevalent as tanks, logo sweats, and puffy coats.
Corporate parent of little-sib Old Navy and slicker big-sib Banana Republic, the Gap offers reliable staples with and a few fresh twists, all within the realm of clothes you can take home to Mama. And speaking of family matters, larger stores, like the three-story 34th Street flagship, include the GapKids, babyGap, GapBody, and GapMaternity collections.
