Gap's global marketing campaign for fall—Shine—brings its "Icon Redefined" collection to life by featuring an eclectic mix of musicians and dancers wearing Gap's signature pieces updated with a modern design point of view and rich fall color palette.

Recognized for inspiring creativity and helping to move culture forward in an inventive way, cast members include musicians Seth and Scott Avett from the Avett Brothers; American pop duo Karmin; professional "Jookin" dancer Lil' Buck; singer-songwriter Lia Ices; Chinese-born San Francisco ballet dancer Yuan Yuan Tan; musician Kaki King; and singer-songwriter Nicki Bluhm. Each cast member embodies what it means to be bright and was photographed while performing their art form in motion.

"Gap's fall collection clearly reflects our casual, American style through modern interpretations of our iconic classics that customers can really make their own," said Seth Farbman, Gap's Global Chief Marketing Officer. "With Shine, we continue our brand's tradition of introducing emerging artists and musicians that inspire people creatively to make their mark on the world. It's this kind of energy and passion for individual style that we are infusing into our clothes today."

As part of the campaign, Gap will showcase cast members through an eight-week content series on Gap's social media channels. Inspirational content includes a YouTube video of Lil' Buck jookin', a Facebook how-to tutorial of Kaki King's guitar tricks, style tips from Nicki Bluhm on Foursquare and a series of share-worthy quotes from the cast. To follow the content series, visit Gap's Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Foursquare, Pinterest and Instagram communities. Join the conversation with the hashtag #shine.

Gap's collaboration with well-respected fashion and lifestyle websites, Styld.by, continues with new partners and content this fall. Using pieces from the Icon Redefined collection, each website styles looks from their own point of view and then delivers those looks in a way that encourages people to engage and share them through social media. On August 16th, each Styld.by partner, including Refinery29, WhoWhatWear, Lookbook, Rue and Stereogum, will host in-store events to celebrate the launch of the fall collection.

Shine will appear in September issues of national magazines including Vogue, Lucky, InStyle, Glamour, GQ, Men's Health, Rolling Stone and Nylon and outdoor in key markets including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. The campaign was developed in partnership with Ogilvy, and Styld.by was developed in partnership with AKQA.
