Sep 22, 2016

Gap has launched its 5th limited edition collection with GQ's Best New Menswear Designers in America program showcasing the best of the best in American menswear.

"Gap is thrilled to celebrate this milestone and bring to life the visions of these talented designers," said Wendi Goldman, executive vice president and chief product officer for Gap.

She said, "They are true All-Stars who have played an important role in shaping contemporary American style and we couldn't be prouder to offer their signature takes on menswear with this new collection." 

This is the tenth year of GQ's Best New Menswear Designers in America search. It is the fifth year Gap has partnered with them to highlight the top designers.

"We wanted to make the tenth anniversary of this program feel like its own declaration, a snapshot of the state of American fashion," said GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson.

Nelson continued, "We also wanted to make the clothes instantly wearable, easily attainable, and flat-out covetable. With these four exciting designers, and with Gap's exceptional partnership, I think we hit the sweet spot."

The designers featured are Michael Bastain, Steven Alan, Saturdays NYC and John Elliott. Three of the four designers are NY based, with John Elliott representing the west coast and LA style.

The collection includes key menswear pieces of trousers, denim, button down shirts, overcoats, leather goods and accessories, as well as casual tees and sweats. Price points range from $18 to $595.

It will be available starting September 27th at select Gap stores globally including the US, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan and European stores as well as online.
