FOLK ROCK FASHION..A collection inspired by summer festival fashion

  • May 4, 2010

With the passing of Coachella and summer on the rise, I get why retailers would want to focus on festival fashion trends. However, the thing I find so fabulous about festivals are the eccentric looks worn by true Fashionistas and their ability to stray away from generic brand name outfits. To me festivals are all about scavenging up some random pieces at a flea market or a consignment shop. 

On a recent online shopping rampage, I noticed Gap had a special section called Folk Rock, which is loosely based around inspiration from summer festivals. The collection as a whole was definitely mediocre and could have used a hint more of loose, grungy pieces, like those typically worn at Coachella.

If I had to pick one item from the Folk Rock group, I would go with the Jean Overalls. I owned an identical pair 10 years ago and I guess that's as vintage as this collection is going to get for me.

What are your thoughts?

It's falls suit with my major gribe with the Gap: blah clothes overall.      I guess I'm just into things with a little oomph in the styling, so it would take a great Fashionista to make these pieces …

Folk Rock Collection=Gap's Identity Crisis
I love Gap. Whenever I am in need of a good pair of jeans I know I can depend on, I go there.  When I need a new crisp white button-down, Gap's the store.  Classic and simple summer dress? I like to fall into the Gap.  Their basics are the best, and for their great designs and excellent quality, their prices can't be beat; this is what Gap is known for.      Patrick Robinson brought a whole new cool to Gap for Fall 2009 though; Fashionistas everywhere went crazy.  …
