Gap does a Uniqlo

In the war between Gap and Uniqlo, my allegience is strictly with Gap. I dunno why, I just like that they don’t try too hard to court the hipster crowd. But now they’re playing Uniqlo at their own game with an artist T-shirt hook-up featuring designs by Chuck Close, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger and Kenny Scharf among others. Wow, this I can’t miss. I don’t even know what they look like yet but I’m loving the idea of a Barbara Kruger or a Jeff Koons. I already have the Kenny Scharf Swatch watch so a T-shirt to go with it? Why, yes please! Which brings me neatly to this suggestion…Can Swatch please jump on the bandwagon and reinstate their Swatch-designer collabo’s? I mean, a Luella Swatch, an Eley Kishimoto Swatch, a JC de Castelbajac Swatch… the list is surely endless?

    Oooh I could never decide… Gap or Uniqlo?

    Gap wins marginally because itsuits my shape more, but Uniqlo is like poor man’s Gap, which is great.

    I love UniQlo….!It is def better than Gap for me..I don’t think I have bought more than 5 items from Gap. Uniqlo does good Jeans too.

    I was lured into Uniqlo recently by the promise of their latest t-shirts. But the quality was absolutely awful. I know they were only about £12 each but I expected them to be so much better.

    Doesn’t the GAP get busted for using sweat shops?

    There are artists protesting Barbara Kruger’s participation in this project

    the Gap makes clothing for boring dull yuppies. Uniqlo is NOTHING like Gap, the only similarity being that they both use sweatshop labor.
    You have Gap for the idiot yuppie/frat boy/upper middle class and Uniqlo for the idiot hipster/fashion-forward wannabe’s
