Having ventured into the stores to start to check out new stock I actually got no further than Gap (on Oxford Street near Selfridges) as I was buying socks for the petit garcon. After my obligatory purchase I had a wander around upstairs. There is still a lot of sale stock and the new season items are primarily khaki trousers in varying styles, some nice stripy vest tanks and a lot of cobalt blue tops. amongst the trousers I spotted a rather chic cardigan.
You will have to bear with the blackberry image quality and the colour is a richer taupe than it looks. It also comes in a dark grey and at £39.50 it would be a good item for work to smarten up the winter wardrobe during these transition months before it is warm enough to fully embrace S/S 10.
The visual merchandising leaves a lot to be desired as the poor cardigan plonked between very urban chic khaki pants is hardly inspiring.
