GQ Unveils “The Coolest Designers on the Planet” Collection

GQ’s “Best New Menswear Designers in America” was started by the menswear magazine to highlight emerging American menswear designers. The program now includes a new collection entitled the “Coolest Designers on the Planet”, in collaboration with US fashion brand Gap.

The collection includes special limited-edition pieces from French brand AMI, Brooklyn-based Kinfolk and Tokyo’s United Arrows & Sons

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, spoke 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 26th at participating Gap stores and via its online shop.
