Alexander Wang’s GQ Prize Includes a Dockers Collaboration

Despite not doing a menswear show this season and having a small presence in the menswear market so far, Alexander Wang won GQ's prize for Best New Menswear Designer in America. Beating out fellow nominees Gant by Michael Bastian, Patrik Ervell, Warriors of Radness, Miller’s Oath, and Riviera Club, Wang's prize includes the schmancy title, a mentorship from Dockers, Bloomingdale's, and GQ editors, and the chance to design a capsule collection for Dockers. So this is also a big win for Dockers, because even if dudes don't get turned on by the idea of a little extra Wang in their pants, chicks sure will, and are likely to buy the stuff anyway.

But might Wang — who's already won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and the Swiss Textile Award — feel a little guilty for being so adored?

He was doing T-shirts and hoodies, and when we approached him, he said, “Don’t you think it’s a little bit early on?” [GQ editor Jim] Moore recalled. I said no, I think you have the potential to be a great American menswear designer. It pushed him to expand his categories.

Wang's show is this evening, and his store opens next week. And have you read New York's profile of Wang in the new fashion issue? Wangity Wang Wang, New York Fashion Wang. Wang!
