What: The Next Designer “It” Item for the Masses

Why: Gap was born in 1969 and it has survived on its selection of classic T-shirts, jeans and button-up shirts until just recently, when its sagging sales created a little fashion media frenzy. How to remedy the problem? Bring in the big guns — in this case, a team of up-and-coming designers named Doo-Ri Chung, Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte, and Thakoon Panichgul. Not quite sure who these people are? They were the winners of a fashion contest sponsored by Vogue and the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and they are the lucky stars chosen to create a new limited-edition selection of white, button-down shirts for Gap.

By now you should be thinking how to get your hands on one of these designer-meets-the-masses shirts that will retail for far below any designer item ever could.
