First up: Tuesday, June 16 (T.O. & Montreal), Thursday June 18 (Vancouver & Alberta) Gap debuts it’s third collection designed by CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners. This year look forward to designs from fashion darlings Albertus Swanepoel, Alexander Wang & Vena Cava’s Lisa Mayock & Sophie Buhai who rework khaki like nobody’s business and all at under $100.
