everything you need to know about gap’s new campaign stars
featuring julia garner, theophilus london, and more.
Gap's campaigns have pretty much been awesome since the "Fall Into The Gap" days, but we have to admit--the ads for spring '14 might give the iconic tagline a run for its money. The brand has enlisted a crew of emerging artists, singers, actors, and more to model its newest collection of easy, ultra-wearable basics.
Starring Julia Garner, Theophilus London, Anna Calvi, and RJ Mitte, among others, these faces probably look familiar, but theres's a whole lot more to these guys than meets the eye.
We've got the scoop on what this soon-to-be-huge crew is really all about, so consider this your ultimate tip sheet...you can tell your friends you knew all about them later.
