In September 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) paid an impromptu visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall, England. For the event, she wore a pair of GAP’s bi-stretch skinny ankle pants in an ikat blue print.
About the GAP skinny ankle pants:
The trousers are made from a special ‘bi-stretch’ fabric, composed of 95% cotton and 5% elastane. The fabric is designed to hold its shape all day. The ikat print trousers retailed for £44.95 on gap.co.uk, €59.95 on gap.eu and $69.95 on gap.com.
Where to buy Kate’s GAP trousers:
Sadly, the GAP no longer sells the Ikat print trousers. You might want to try eBay.
Other colours still available!

GAP + P.A.C.E
The bi-stretch skinny ankle pants were made by women who participate in GAP’s P.A.C.E education program.
“In 2007, we launched Gap Inc. P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement) to help the women who make our clothes gain the skills and confidence they need to advance at work and in life. More than 35,000 women in 12 countries have participated in the program to date, and we have now committed to educate one million women throughout the world by the end of 2020.”
P.A.C.E teaches women tangible skills in a number of areas, including communication, finances, health and planning for the future.
Kate Middleton wearing GAP:
This is not the first time Kate’s worn GAP. The Duchess owns a number of pieces from the company, including this fitted shirt.
Kate wore the shirt during a visit to a vineyard in 2014.
