British Styles at the Gap

British Styles at the Gap

 (Gap’s Portobello Road Collection)

This weekend, I headed to an outdoor mall for a little back-to-school shopping. No, I’m not personally headed back to school, however, this time of year always makes me want to buy new clothes.

I passed by several shop windows before seeing a truly lovely display in Gap’s window. This may not seem like an odd happening, until I mention that the store was Gap Kids. The display was showcasing their new Fall lines – three of which favor British styles – all named after famous streets or areas in London:

  • Portobello Road Collection – This collection pairs classic British style (think Oxford tweed, only pink) with the sassy elegance of Kate Middleton. High Street fashion at it’s best, even if you’re only 11 years old!
  • Brick Lane Collection – Funky style that mixes pinks and blacks with stripes, leopard print, and denim. A perfect mix of girly frills, edgy fun, and a bit of that I’m with the band attitude.
  • Covent Garden Collection – Highly feminine style with purple and pink influences. These outfits can make any girl feel like a real-life fancy Nancy and are quite appropriate for taking tea in the afternoon with grandma or the Queen.
Sadly, Gap does not offer these fantastic British styles for young women. Guess I’ll have to head across the pond for the real thing.


  1. Ooo I love the names of these collections!!

    • Bonjour Caroline – I know! Those names are too cute! I seriously wish they had clothes like this for young adults. If you see anything similar, let me know 🙂
