Gap’s global marketing campaign for fall—Shine—brings its “Icon Redefined” collection to life by featuring an eclectic mix of musicians and dancers wearing Gap’s signature pieces updated with a modern design point of view and rich fall color palette.
Recognized for inspiring creativity and helping to move culture forward in an inventive way, cast members include musicians Seth and Scott Avett from the Avett Brothers; American pop duo Karmin; professional “Jookin” dancer Lil’ Buck; singer-songwriter Lia Ices; Chinese-born San Francisco ballet dancer Yuan Yuan Tan; musician Kaki King; and singer-songwriter Nicki Bluhm. Each cast member embodies what it means to be bright and was photographed while performing their art form in motion.
“Gap’s fall collection clearly reflects our casual, American style through modern interpretations of our iconic classics that customers can really make their own,” said Seth Farbman, Gap’s Global Chief Marketing Officer. “With Shine, we continue our brand’s tradition of introducing emerging artists and musicians that inspire people creatively to make their mark on the world. It’s this kind of energy and passion for individual style that we are infusing into our clothes today.”
As part of the campaign, Gap will showcase cast members through an eight-week content series onGap Malaysia Facebook (facebook.com/gapmalaysia). Inspirational content includes a YouTube video of Lil’ Buck jookin’, a Facebook how-to tutorial of Kaki King’s guitar tricks, and a series of share-worthy quotes from the cast.
Gap’s collaboration with well-respected fashion and lifestyle websites (Refinery29, WhoWhatWear, Lookbook, Rue and Stereogum), Styld.by, continues with new partners and content this fall. Using pieces from the Icon Redefined collection, each website styles looks from their own point of view and then delivers those looks in a way that encourages people to engage and share them through social media.
Shine will appear in September issues of national magazines, such as, Cleo, Female, Nuyou and EH! and outdoor in key commercial areas, such as, Golden Village cinemas and Sprint Highway Billboard. The campaign was developed in partnership with Ogilvy, and Styld.by was developed in partnership with AKQA.

The song’s music video debuted this week on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown while rotation begins on MTV, MTV Hits, Teen Nick and Fuse.

Karmin can currently be seen splashed across the pages of NYLON, Elle, Teen Vogue and on the cover of YRB.
Karmin took the internet by storm last year after posting a cover of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” on YouTube. The clip instantly went viral and became one of YouTube’s most viewed videos of 2011. The duo has since racked up 200 million views for their videos with over 800,000 YouTube subscribers. The duo debuted their original music on Saturday Night Live’s iconic stage on February 11th performing “Brokenhearted” and “I Told You So” and instantly became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter that evening. Complex magazine said it best saying, “Karmin officially crossed over into the mainstream last night with a performance on Saturday Night Live..,” while AOL said “Karmin mixed bubblegum, rock and hip-hop, proving they’re capable of more than just covering Chris Brown tunes. Rapping like Nicki Minaj and moving like Gwen Stefani, Heidemann wowed..,” and Idolator said “Offbeat pop duo Karmin punctuated their remarkable journey from “Look At Me Now” re-makers to mainstream stars…”
