Pierre Hardy For The Gap? Not That Impressed

When any great designer decides to lend his expertise and vision to the masses, it is always exciting to wait and see what he's going to come up with. And then the line comes out…

Just a few days ago, (March 6th I believe), the Gap debuted a few special pairs of shoes that were designed by Pierre Hardy. This is the man who has made amazing footwear creations for Dior and Balenciaga, but what does he come up with for the American retailer? Clunky and cloddy platforms. 

I know it's just the Gap, so I can't expect calf leather t-strap sandals with pinked edges and large cutout details. Still, I was hoping for something more. Besides, has anyone seen how fashion forward the Gap has become recently with their colorblock dresses and high waisted trousers? I mean they have Annie Leibovitz shooting their ad campaigns after all – can we get something a little more fashionable than 1990s platform sandals? 

The Mary Jane flats are rather chic, I'll give him that, but they're nothing special and kinda boring. The Gap already has ballets that they designed themselves and they are much more cute and interesting. The photo above (taken from their website) is a representation of the Pierre Hardy collection. Other than the tan gladiator sandals pictured in the middle (did they sell out? where are they?) I have to say there is nothing there that looks modern or new or designed by someone who has ever worked in high fashion. There are no special little details or even cool colors. We're coming into one of the most outlandishly artsy printed seasons we've seen in a long time… where are the colors?!! I'm not talking Dolce & Gabbana splattered paint, but even the Gap itself is embracing brights.

What a disappointment.
