Gap ‘90s Archive Re-Issue

By Jessica Mackin-Cipro

Gap, the American clothing brand, has launched a limited-edition collection – the ‘90s Archive Re-Issue – for men and women featuring iconic styles from the ‘90s including the bodysuit, reverse fit and easy fit denim, pleated khakis, and the timeless pocket tee, available online and in select stores. The archive pays homage to the past and celebrates emerging talent with Rumer Willis, Coco Gordon, Evan Ross, Chelsea Tyler, Lizzy Jagger, TJ Mizell, and Naomi Campbell in the “Generation Gap” short film. The film features this roll call of emerging talent, cast from the offspring of stars of the iconic Gap ‘90s ads with a special cameo from the timeless icon and Gap alumni model, actress, and activist Naomi Campbell wearing the iconic pocket tee that she modeled in 1992 for her Steven Meisel shoot. “It’s an honor to be here, in the same outfit that I wore twenty years ago in my Gap ad,” said Campbell. “The creativity in the ‘90s is something I’m so grateful that I got to be a part of and to see and to learn from and to draw inspiration from.” To launch the collection, Gap collaborated with director Kevin Calero to create the film that is the ultimate contemporary homage to the iconic Gap ads of the ‘90s with references to “Mellow Yellow,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” and “Just Can’t Get Enough” updated with a modern twist. “I was a ‘Gap kid’ so when the call came through to re-interpret the legendary ‘90’s Gap campaigns, it was a dream come true,” said Calero.  Model Lizzy Jagger is the daughter of Jerry Hall. She wears her take on the classic black bodysuit that her mother flaunted in 1991. “The classic look for anyone is not just a ‘90s look. The white

t-shirt and jeans look has gone through the decades and is still around, and I think of that as being really Gap,” said Jagger. “I feel honored. Being part of anything Run DMC is a huge honor for me and being able to back up my father’s legacy with Gap,” said DJ TJ Mizell, son of Jam Master Jay of Run DMC, who wears the iconic Gap logo sweatshirt that his father wore in the film. Actor Evan Ross, son of Diana Ross, wears the sleeveless logo tee as a tribute to his mother who wore a simple tank in her 1991 ad. “Gap can transcend all eras. It still feels relevant. It looks like what we would be wearing right now . . . it is at the cusp of what we’re doing right now,” said Ross. Singer Chelsea Tyler, daughter of Steven Tyler, wears the sleeveless Tee and reverse pleated jeans channeling her dad’s “Easy Fit Jeans” commercial from 1997.  “Gap is taking something so classic that we all know and is so quintessential in our minds but has a new spin and current feeling to it,” said Tyler. “Gap was really the first brand to come out of the box . . . and do different and interesting things,” said singer Rumer Willis. Willis, daughter of Demi Moore, wears the cropped denim jacket, similar to the one her mother wore in her 1990 ad, with the henley bodysuit. Artist Coco Gordon, daughter of Kim Gordon who wore the pocket tee in her 1990 ad, wears the navy icon leather Jacket, black short-sleeve mockneck tee, and high rise denim short in the film. “My mom always bought me Gap clothes . . . we definitely went to the Gap for my cool clothes.” To view the collection and the “Generation Gap” film go to Gap. com/archivereissue.

East End Restaurant Week

Hamptons Restaurant Week, the brains behind the annual promotion, Long Island Restaurant and Hospitality Group, introduces a new and improved

rendition of the event, East End Restaurant Week, being held March 26 to April 2. The promotion was originally created to garner positive publicity and generate additional business for East End restaurants during a traditionally slow period and as a kick start to the spring season. What began as a South Fork promotion, was so well-received, that over the last 14 years it has grown to encompass all of the East End, including the North Fork. “We’ve always received a tremendous amount of support from the North Fork,” said LIRHG President Steve Haweeli, “It’s time we recognize that and show our appreciation for all restaurateurs involved.” Participating restaurants will offer a unique three-course prix fixe menu for $28.95, every night they are open except Saturday when the menu may only be offered until 7 PM. Each participant is required to offer three options per course. As well, the promotion will feature a new lodging component offering an option for a discount getaway to the East End. Each participating

lodging property will offer a minimum 10-percent discount off your stay during the promotion, certain limitations may apply. The option to stay at one of the East End’s amazing participating lodging properties at a discounted rate coupled with the restaurant promotion offers a great off-season getaway to one of the most beautiful regions on the east coast. E a s t E n d R e s t a u r a n t We e k is a win-win for participants and consumers alike. Diners are provided the opportunity to experience new restaurants and lodging properties they might not otherwise try at an affordable price. For over the last decade restaurateurs have reported a surge in business during the promotion, some by more than 50-percent. East End Restaurant Week is presented by Long Island Restaurant and Hospitality Group, the business-to-consumer promotions division of WordHampton Public Relations.

astrology & all Week of 2/15/17 2/22/17 Highlights of the week: Saturday The Sun enters the sign of Pisces and begins a time of deep reflection for us all as we prepare for Spring. Happy Birthday Pisces! Wednesday Mars, the planet that rules our actions goes bump with Pluto, the planet of exposing scandals and outrage while Jupiter, the planet of exaggeration challenges Eris the planet of Discord. This means that frustration levels can be high and people are looking to throw blame. If possible stay out of the line of fire. This will pass. ARIES (3/20 - 4/20) Restless feelings can be running high and are best channeled into productive activity. Get out and do something. A brisk walk or even cleaning out the closets will distract you from your frustration. Donating time to a charity can lift your mood. TAURUS (4/20 - 5/20) Decisions about career or a relationship come forward. Time to take the next step? Teamwork is the key to obtaining your goals so be considerate of your partners opinion. Some people may begin to fade from your inner circle as a natural part of life. GEMINI (5/21 - 6/20) Don’t hesitate to entertain any new opportunity that comes your way either in love or work. Time for you to listen to your intuition and don’t let others discourage you. You can have that impossible dream.

CANCER (6/21 - 7/22) Where is your wealth? What do you value? The pressures of home or family may have you wondering. Deep feelings cannot be changed unless they are expressed and can lead to greater understanding and love. LEO (7/23 - 8/22) Remember power lies in setting appropriate goals. Don’t let your bad habits from smoking to being a control freak prevent you from solving problems. Use that

creative way only you know how to use to attract love. VIRGO (8/23 - 9/22) Busting out of your rut may be foremost on your mind. Express yourself freely but be aware that other motives might not be entirely wholesome. Stop trying to fix everything and everyone. LIBRA (9/22 - 10/22) Forgiveness may be a big theme this week starting with yourself. You can find much enjoyment in the everyday things and the people you love. Any show of gratitude will be rewarded tenfold. SCORPIO (10/23 - 11/21) Looking to renew your life? Chances are you will have to reveal a few secrets to get where you want to go. Half-truths will come back to haunt you. SAGITTARIUS (11/22 - 12/20) You must remain adaptable to any challenging situations that might arise. Going with the flow will save you much wear and tear. Watch and listen before making any decisions. CAPRICORN (12/21 - 1/19) Your strength lies in making good decisions but it doesn’t hurt to ask for help where needed. Organizing your time and money can bring relief from worry. AQUARIUS (1/20 - 2/18) With Mercury the planet of communications in your sign, you are able to see situations clearly and express your thoughts easily. Lose your fears as better situations are on the horizon. Love is in the air too! PISCES (2/19 - 3/20) Your friends and family are where you can find comfort and create new memories. Creative projects are highly favored as is love. Maybe it is time to put yourself first.
