Word spread like wildfire last week when we reported that Pierre Hardy’s much-anticipated new suede and leather wedge bootie for Gap (the only one of the several styles previewed that’ll actually see production) was coming to stores. The shoes were due to arrive tomorrow, but owing to a delay, they’ll now hit stores October 28. Consider this a public service announcement, with enough time to cancel those out-of-office “meetings” you’d scheduled for tomorrow morning.
There are high/low collaborations that get more press and that inspire longer, round-the-block lines, and then there are those that soldier away, season after season, delivering quality stuff. Put Pierre Hardy’s affordable footwear for the Gap in the latter category. His latest creation, a peep-toe black suede wedge accented with leather trim, debuts at Gap stores nationwide (and at Gap.com) next Tuesday for a cool $195.

Gareth Pugh (left) has just opened his first store in Hong Kong, for which he shipped in tubs and tubs of black rubber paint from England. “What could be more me than a black box?” he asked of his design strategy. A black box full of nails, we’d say, though that might not be the most comfortable shopping experience. [Vogue U.K.]

And while Europe is sending its best toward America, the U.S. of A. is responding in kind: Gap is set to open its first store in Milan. But before that, the label is dipping a toe in the water with a capsule collection, designed with 10 Corso Como’s Franca Sozzani, to be sold at a temporary store during fashion week in September.
