Bridging the Gap Between Designer & High Street

I was waiting until all the fuss had died down before I ventured into Ireland’s first stand alone Gap store. Having just read an article on US Vogue’s website style.com, I’ll be heading over there right now; apparently New York designer, Carolina Herrera, is a big fan.

Carolina HerreraIt seems the team at Vogue had spotted her wearing one of her trademark crisp white shirts that was monogrammed with her initials (C de H no less) and asked where they came from. She responded enthusiastically and said that “I was in heaven when (Gap designer) Patrick (Robinson) sent me the shirts”. Apparently she was sent 12 of them and had them all monogrammed, six in red and six in blue. Herrera went on to say, “They fit perfectly, I love them and I wear one almost everyday.”

What a fabulous idea, personalised clothing! Carolina Herrera is known for her elegant designs created in rich fabrics and if she is out wearing Gap shirts everyday I’ll follow her lead. The new Gap store is on the 2nd floor at Dundrum, you can buy your shirt from there and then bring it into Prospect Designs on Montague lane, just off Harcourt Street, to get your initials embroidered on by them.

If that wasn’t enough inspiration for you, screen siren Marilyn Monroe was a fan of the monogrammed white shirt too…
