The Gap has appointed Rosella Giuliani to the creative director post at its 1969 Jeans offshoot. Giuliani was previously the VP of design and merchandising at 7 For All Mankind. "I am thrilled to join Marka, Patrick and the Gap team," Giuliani told WWD. "By being based in the world's hub for premium denim, and by approaching design with a customer lens, we can continue building on the already successful 1969 product, which has a new and fresh appeal to consumers." This week, Gap opened at 1969 shop in Chicago; this follows the 1969 shop opening in Los Angeles. [WWD]
