Gap Kids + Threadless – now the most indie of tees at the most unlikely of shops

threadless tees at gapWell lookie here at what Gap is doing these days: taking a page from the Target Shops, West Elm’s indie artist selections, and other mainstream retailer partnerships with the little guys. Because starting today, Gap has joined forces with the quirky, uncommon tees from Threadless in a brand new collection made just for kids.

The Gap Threadless tees for kids have launched with five cute designs–of course. After all, they’re all crowdsourced and chosen by you. Lim Heng Swee’s bunny shirt is crossing fingers, ears and legs–not sure if she’s hoping for something or just really has to pee. And how can you not adore a paper airplane with big, twin-engine dreams? Sizes run from 12 months to 5y.

Besides, it’s kind of nice to know that you can now walk into your average Gap in the mall and find a shirt hipper than one that says…well, GAP on it. –Liz

    Good point, Charissa! We love the idea that independent illustrators will now have greater exposure for their work.
