20 years later, it will come as no surprise that queen of the catwalk, Naomi Campbell can still rock the iconic cut-off denim shorts and white tee that she wore in a 90s Gap ad. She joins a new generation of emerging talent, the children of 90s icons in a new Generation Gap collection, available online and in select stores from 7 February.

Naomi Campbell, who was shot wearing the Pocket Tee in her 1992 ad by Steven Meisel, wears the Pocket Tee re-issue in the film.

“It’s an honour 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.”

“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,” says ‘Generation Gap’ director Kevin Calero. “The ‘90’s ads set the tone for a whole stream of fashion attitudes and moments. I don’t think many other brands could pull off this sort of film with authenticity and heart.”

The ‘Generation Gap’ cast includes:
