Earlier this spring, GQ announced that its “Best New Menswear Designers in America” initiative would include a small pool of international talent. Initiated in 2007 as a way to bring emerging American menswear designers to the fashion forefront, the program now includes the “Coolest Designers on the Planet” project with aspirations of reaching a wider global audience.

In collaboration with Gap, GQ has enlisted French brand AMI, Brooklyn-based Kinfolk and Tokyo’s United Arrows & Sons to create a special limited-edition capsule collection exclusive to the retailer. Each designer has been tasked with reimagining casual staples such as T-shirts, crewneck pullovers, button-down shirts, denims and accessories.

GQ Editor-in-Chief, Jim Nelson, had this to say about the project:

“We knew expanding this collaboration and taking it international would add vibrancy to the program, and this year’s amazing designers certainly brought it. Now comes the best part: We can’t wait to see the clothes hit Gap stores, because this year feels very special.”

The collection will debut on September 26 at participating Gap stores and via its online shop.
