NEW YORK — Gap recently let 30 Rhode Island School of Design students loose on its new classic spring cardigan, then stood back and waited for the results.
Gap creative director Patrick Robinson gave the students only one instruction: to use their imagination. Otherwise, they were free to incorporate the materials and techniques of their choosing. The 30 one-off deconstructed and reworked garments, priced at $68 each, will be available starting Friday at Gap’s rotating concept space adjacent to its Fifth Avenue and 54th Street flagship. Besides showcasing the RISD students’ designs, the shop will sell Gap cardigans for $44 each in a range of bright and bold spring colors in stripes and solids.
