Carola Long: 'Gap have handily divided their 'pants' into eight styles, providing a bluffer's guide to the trouser universe'
Saturday 24 July 2010
The emotional trajectory of a new season can be intense; a wave of excitement at all the shiny new trends that will definitely change your life, followed by panic. Where do you start? Fortunately, Gap have provided the easiest introduction to autumn/winter imaginable with their new Premium Pant collection, especially given that trousers are set to be a key piece. Granted, this sounds a bit like saying coats with sleeves are big news for cold weather, but dresses did dominate the catwalks for years. In the pick'n'mix spirit of modern trends there is a smorgasbord of styles on offer: a slightly bootcut slim crop at Celine and Balenciaga, high-waisted, Seventies graduated flares as seen at Chloe, skinny straight at Balenciaga, skinny at Stella McCartney and a kick flare at Gucci. Phew.

If there is one name in fashion that can at once summon both the glory of the avant garde and the cachet of commercial success, then it is Alexander McQueen. Known as a modern visionary, he is one of few current designers able to straddle the boundaries of high conceptualism and highly sought-after style.

Ubiquity could arguably be fashion's ultimate goal. At its most banal the industry's purpose is to sell clothes, after all. More loftily, changing our perceptions of dress, particularly on a grand scale, is the sartorial Holy Grail.
