Lederkleidung von Gap


Explanation:
Lederbekleidung von Gap
Gap-Lederwaren
Gap-Lederkleidung

Is the "g" in Gap capitalized? Sounds to me like the reference is to Gap, the clothing chain (they have quite a number of stores in Germany). Last year, Gap ran a big leather campaign. As all of Gap's campaigns are centrally managed from their headquarters, this would also fit in with the reference to mass marketing. (Besides, Spaltleder - skiver acc. to Muret-Sanders).

I have worked at Gap conferences as an interpreter, thus I'm familiar with their leather campaign.
