For the past two years, Gap has released a "Design Editions" collection with CFDA/Vogue fashion fund nominees. Both times, designers have put their spin on the traditional white button-down shirt.
But this year, things are going to be different. Teen Vogue just interviewed Gap vp of design Patrick Robinson, and he let slip that none other than Alexander Wang will be doing a garment for the project. And it will be made from something other than white cotton: 'He did this incredible motorcycle jacket in khaki that's going to be under $100. It's coming out on June 16th, so get ready!' Oh, we'll be there. Anyone have a photo of the jacket that they want to leak?
