Patrick hits the target, gets more than expected!
Via the Daily News:
(NEW YORK) Gap Inc. today named Robinson executive vice president of design for Gap Adult and gapbody. Robinson will oversee all elements of design for the $6 billion retail brand’s women’s and men’s apparel, accessories, and intimates lines in North America. He will report to Marka Hansen, president of Gap North America, and Gary Muto, president, Gap Adult and gapbody. He begins his new role May 29.
“Patrick brings broad experience—from high-end fashion to mass market retail—demonstrating his versatility to interpret and create fresh, clean designs true to the Gap brand aesthetic,” Hansen said in a statement. “We believe his skills and experience with some of the most respected apparel labels in the world will be great assets to Gap brand.”
Most recently, he designed a limited-edition collection for Target’s GO International initiative.
Known for his easy and comfortable styling with a tailored edge, Robinson is the perfect man for the job- he can help keep the Gap fresh and youthful. If you haven't picked up anything from his line for target, I suggest you get on it! Inside the collection are some of summers must haves (like the button down linen shirt; rolled cuff shorts; ankle length tank dresses; and the navy A-line mini dress)
