Back to Basics

Back to Basics
Thursday, July, 29, 2010 When it comes to thinking about pre-fall fashion, we were inspired by the girl-meets-boy aesthetic of a young Diane Keaton in the iconic movie Annie Hall-an image for which Gap's new denim styles provided the perfect base. Using their Long & Lean, Always Skinny, and Easy Straight cuts, we updated Keaton's much-emulated look by opting for contrasting textures, shrunken jackets, and a few well-placed accessories. These of-the-moment ensembles offer the ideal blend of vintage flair and au courant fashion, and are infused with the perfect amount of androgynous style. The resulting outfits reflect not only a highly-wearable approach to what was seen on the F/W 10 runways, but are also intriguing sartorial combinations that are sure to springboard you straight into the next season.-Liza Kaplan
