Gap and GQ Team Up With 'Coolest Designers On The Planet'
GQ's The Coolest Designers on the Planet programme is back – this time with a nostalgic challenge.
The project, established in 2007, traditionally recognises the best menswear designers in the United States and around the world. This year, it sees superstars from France, Italy, Canada, and the US try their hand at reinventing the iconic Gap sweatshirt.
“Gap is thrilled to continue our partnership with GQ by expanding our roster of designers and adding a new and exciting twist to the design process,” says John Caruso, Gap VP of Men’s Design. “For Gap, the logo sweatshirt is one of our most iconic styles, so it was a natural fit to challenge this group of highly regarded menswear designers to collaborate on reinventing this classic. We look forward to bringing each designer’s unique perspective to our customers across the globe.”
