Feb '08
Gap, with the help of influential fashion stylist Katie Grand, has partnered with British luxury handbag brand Mulberry to create a new version of Mulberry's iconic Roxanne bag for the Gap (PRODUCT) RED collection.

The bag was first released in the UK and Paris on December 1, 2007 to commemorate World AIDS Day, and was originally part of a collection curated by Katie, bringing together a diverse array of designers and creatives hailing from all corners of the fashion industry.

The bag is now being launched in the US in time for Valentine's Day. Incorporating Gap values of quality, desirability and accessibility, the Mulberry Roxanne bag has been reworked in sweatshirt jersey and will be available in both red and gray versions.

The limited edition bag will be sold beginning February 6th, 2008, exclusively at the Gap store located at 680 5th Avenue at 54th Street in NYC.

50 percent of profits from the sales of all Gap (PRODUCT) RED items goes to the Global Fund, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa, with a focus on providing antiretroviral drugs to women and children.

Katie Grand, the stylist and editor-in-chief of the acclaimed UK fashion magazine Pop, invited Mulberry, and other designers, to participate in a project teaming Gap (PRODUCT) RED with some of most exciting designer brands and oversaw the creation of this new must-have product.

"Throughout my adult life I have seen the effects of AIDS at close hand," says Katie, "So to be asked to curate this project with Gap and (RED) has been an honor and a privilege.
