We were flipping through August issue of Glamour magazine yesterday as we sunned ourselves (with SPF 30) on a Manhattan Pier. One story in particular caught our eye, "The New Rules of Casual Chic" otherwise known as 6-pages devoted exclusively to Gap. It feels pretty similar to the brouhaha over Bazaar and Gwyneth Paltrow and the other faces of Sensuous from a few weeks back, if you ask us. Just as in that instance, there's no Gap advertising in this issue, but color us shocked if September doesn't turn up a few pages.
While many of the pieces are winners--we're seriously thinking about the above bag that folds over into a clutch, making it a natural for packing--typically when a mag features a designer, they'll at least mix it up or accessorize with pieces from other brands--like if Lucky features Milla Jovovich, the story will have clothes from Jovovich Hawk and other lines. Couldn't Glamour have even thrown in some Banana or Old Navy? Whatevs--we did enjoy the Q&A with new designer Patrick Robinson and the sneak peek at the Pierre Hardy shoes that aren't available online yet.
