Hipster-gasm

Jane Herman, Director of Concept for GAP, contemplatively reclines on the IKEA Malm bed in her Brooklyn apartment.  She "made the decorative pillow behind her by sewing the embroidered placket of an old shirt onto a plain linen case."

I didn't know that one could look vacant and smug at the same time, but the girl has pulled it off.

I smell patchouli and particle board.

I don't know what a director of concept is, but I do know that the gap has looked like it was going out of business for the past two years.

Oh man,

How, pray tell, does one land this sort of plum, Jenna Lyons-esque gig?
Oh yeah, that's right, clearly, by looking like a swan in boy's clothing.
Lovely home, artful vignettes, gorgeous legs....
Cheers, Alcira

Alcira - Her father in Ron Sherman who owns Fred Segal in Beverly Hills. She used to write for Vogue, and Gap's head designer Patrick Robinson is married to Virginia Smith, Vogue's Fashion Market/Accessories Director. The dots aren't hard to connect.

Nice pillow. She looks suitably bored about it.

Did I miss something? What should I be looking at in the apartment ? :)
Besides the ugly rug in the bedroom.

And people claim there's no nepotism in fashion/media...I saw this on Refinery 29 the other day and thought, "If not for her pedigree..."
