Rodarte Spring 2007
Rodarte Spring 2007

We all knew from the Spring 07 shows that the little white dress would be taking over our closets this season. But with so many options, how could we choose? On my way to work this morning, I did a double-take as I passed the Gap windows, steps away from work. Forget that I was late-I had to stop and swoon over the adorable LWDs designed by fashion it-line, Rodarte. As reported by FashionWeekDaily:

(NEW YORK) Gap Inc. is the latest mass retailer to jump on the emerging designer collaboration bandwagon. The San Francisco-based retail giant, who’s currently actively searching for a new CEO, has enlisted 2006 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners Doo-Ri Chung of Doo.Ri, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, and Thakoon’s Thakoon Panichgul to design a limited-edition collection of specially designed pieces called Gap Design Editions that will be sold at 100 of its larger stores. While details remain mum, according to sources, each designer was given a white button down shirt with which to create three unique designs, to be manufactured and marketed in tandem with Gap’s upcoming white shirt campaign.

Once again, we can all indulge our high fashion whims at affordable prices. Forget “the boyfriend” khakis. Invest in a Rodarte.

The dress that stopped me in my tracks.
