Gap X GQ
Founded in San Francisco in 1969, Gap is one of the world’s most recognisable apparel and accessories brands. Beginning with the first international store in London in 1987, Gap continues to connect with customers online and across the brand’s about 1,700 company-operated and franchise retail locations around the world.
Gap’s latest release is the 4th exclusive menswear collection designed by GQ, the leading men’s general-interest magazine, four Best New Menswear Designers in America for 2015.
Following three previous seasons’ of successful collaborations, this year’s collection highlights each designer’s perspective on classic menswear pieces.
“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.” – Steven Sare, Gap’s SVP of Merchandising
The collection includes tailored blazers and trousers, overcoats, leather jackets, graphic and classic tees, sweatshirts, sweatpants, denim, and field jackets, along with accessories — including shoes, hats, bags, socks, and ties. Available online at www.gap.co.uk
“There’s a great story about the state of American fashion happening in this year’s collaboration, One, that it’s thriving. Two, where it’s thriving. These incredibly talented designers are channeling the new energy coming from both coasts — I feel confident that together they represent not just what men want to wear these days, but what they truly want to live in.” – GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson
