Craft Work


“I am always inspired by the tension between the traditional and the modern, the great outdoors and urban architectural structures, the organic and the man-made,” says Rebekka Bay, the creative director of Gap. “Folk, craft, and Amish; minuscule pretty florals, grunge, and modern prefab houses—they all add up to a romantic mood for fall 2014.”
