Gap's new spring 2015 lookbook, out now, showcases the direction of since-departed creative director Rebekka Bay. Bay came from COS, a European retailer known for its minimalist aesthetic and forward-thinking silhouettes. So it's no surprise that what you see here is a bit different, a bit experimental.
Because this is Gap, the look for spring is all about denim. There are only two pairs of jeans (one of which is a very "Dad" pair of jean shorts), but plenty of denim shirts, skirts, peplum tops, bombers, anoraks, and jackets. There's a crop top, but the majority of the clothes—culottes, knee-length skirts, cardigans—are pretty buttoned-up. Almost nothing is fitted or sexy; tops and pants are generously cut.
Aside from a bit of burgundy, the retailer's color scheme for spring is cool blues and whites with just one print. See all the looks here, and check out our Gap buys for spring in this Racked Hauls video.
