Where the runway meets the street

It is that time again. GQ has just announced their “Best New Menswear Designers in America” with a list of familiar names getting a nod: Mark McNairy, Johan Lindeberg (BLK DNM), Todd Synder, Ovadia & Sons, Saturdays, and Ian Velardi. As they mention in the release: “This year’s group includes six highly regarded designers that were selected by GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson and creative director Jim Moore, along with the fashion editors of the magazine.”

Each designer will also work on a limited edition collection for GAP, which in itself is a big coup for the apparel retailer. Last year’s sponsor was Dockers. The selection of “Best New Menswear Designers in America” will also be highlighted in the April 2012 issue of GQ.
