GAP has released the fourth edition of their exclusive menswear collection in collaboration with GQ‘s four Best New Menswear Designers in America for 2015. GQ’s Best New Menswear Designers in America project was established in 2007, and works to help and bring attention to emerging American menswear designers. With the designers being selected by GQ’s editor-in-chief, Jim Nelson, creative director Jim Moore, as well as the magazines fashion editors, they participate in a mentoring program led by GQ and GAP.
This years designers will be featured in a special advertising insert in the October issue of GQ magazine, and include David Hart, Chris Stamp, Nick Friedberg and Jamie Haller, and Emil and Sandy Corsillo. David Hart is a Brooklyn designer with an affinity for tailored clothing and launched his own company in 2009 inspired by the fashion of the 50’s and 60’s. Whereas Chris Stamp is an L.A. designer who started his company Stampd back in 2011, which combines West Coast street and surf cultures with East Coast flair. Designers Nick Friedberg and Jamie Haller are also L.A. designers as well as vintage enthusiasts, something that probably helped to bring them together to create NSF in 2005, where they make clothing that are meant to be and look like they are lived in. The final company is The Hill-Side, created by Brooklyn brother Emil and Sandy Corsillo who share a love of textiles, and aspire to make simple designs by creating the same object every season but offer it in a wide variety of high-quality fabrications.
The collection will be available beginning September 29th at select GAP stores worldwide, including the USA, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan and throughout Europe as well as their online stores.
