Gap has announced it will once again join forces with GQ to release a limited-edition collection of menswear designed by the magazine’s four ‘Best New Menswear Designers in America’ for 2015.
Following three previous seasons of collaborations, this year’s line will feature pieces from Brooklyn-based designers David Hart and The Hill-Side, as well as LA-based Stampd and NSF. All four will be featured in a special advertising insert in the October 2015 issue of GQ.
“This year’s designers all bring something totally new to Gap stores around the world,” said Gap SVP of Merchandising Steven Sare. “Each designer offers a unique take on what’s ‘new and now’ for men. We’re really excited to play a role in bringing this exclusive collection to our customers who’ve come to anticipate and covet these limited-edition pieces each year.”
The collection will feature a range of tailored blazers and trousers, overcoats, leather jackets, graphic and classic tees, sweatshirts, sweatpants, denim, field jackets and accessories; including shoes, hats, bags, socks and ties.
“There’s a great story about the state of American fashion happening in this year’s collaboration,” GQ Editor-in-Chief Jim Nelson said. “One, that it’s thriving. Two, where it’s thriving. These incredibly talented designers are channeling the new energy coming from both coasts; whether it’s the LA vibe of the streetwear-meets-sportswear looks from Stampd, the perfectly distressed and lived-in staples from NSF, fanatically detail oriented accessories from Hill-Side, or the refined take on 50’s cool that David Hart has perfected. I feel confident that together they represent not just what men want to wear these days, but what they truly want to live in.”
The collection will be available starting Sept. 29 online and at select Gap stores in more than seven countries, including the USA, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and throughout Europe. Retail prices will range from $14 to $460.
