In Summary: Gap x Todd x Threadless, Fashion Forward, H&M Pop-Up, Bell & Ross Vintage, Jimmy Choo’s UK Spirit

Gap x Todd Snyder

Gap joins forces with men’s wear designer Todd Snyder for its latest pop-up shop, located on Fifth Ave and 54th Stree in New York City. The shop offers the summer collection of Gap + Threadless. Threadless is a Chicago based brand that collaborates with emerging artists to create unique t-shirts. “I presented the idea to Gap,” said Snyder, noting that his motivation was to publicize the work of talented but little-known artists. “Art doesn’t get the attention it needs,” he said. “But this brings their art to life.” The shop will remain in place through June 30, and on Thursday, Threadless will host an event there featuring several of the artists and its chief executive officer, Tom Ryan.

H&M Olympic Pop-up

H&M is launching a sports pop-up in London this summer, timed perfectly with the London Olympics. The two shops, located in Convent Garden and Westfield Stratford City, will be open for 10 weeks and carry men’s, women’s and children’s sportswear. The Convent Garden pop-up (opening on July 6th) will carry a hall of sports theme, while the Westfield Stratford City shop (opening July 7th) will have a more modern feel. As a part of the launch, each store will carry an exclusive limited edition collection with colors that exude British patriotism, as well as a number of accessories.


Bell & Ross Vintage

“Bell & Ross presents the sport-inspired Vintage BR 126 watch just in time for a warmer season that beckons for outdoor activities. Featuring a black bezel that echoes the dial of the watch, the timepiece is a two-counter chronograph that is powered by an automatic ETA movement. The hands, markers and numerals are coated with photo-luminous material for easy legibility under all conditions, including in depths of up to 100 meters. Available with either a black calfskin or stainless steel bracelet with pin buckle, the latest from Bell & Ross should hit select luxury retailers in the coming weeks.” [Hypebeast]
