The unique silhouette of the Flatiron building, the lush greenery of Central Park, the concrete canyons of Manhattan, the beaches of Coney Island. All amazing in their own right, but as great as they are, the true greatness of New York lies somewhere else, in the people who live here. The city is full of ordinary but extraordinary people who make the city come alive.
It is the combination of their interests, dreams, passions and lives that makes the city exceptional. Each and every one of them has a story worth checking out. This autumn, we will meet some of these people and see what their lives are about. They are an eclectic mix that make New York.
A collection worthy of the most stylish city in the world
For Fall/Winter 2013 GANT returns to the familiar turf of the American East Coast. Finding inspiration from the quaint quads of the Ivy League colleges and the real inhabitants of the city that never sleeps, we translate our rich heritage into a collection that is quintessential American sportswear with a distinct European touch. This season features three inspirational themes; New York Stories, Collegiate and Luxury.
With New York Stories GANT honors the stylish citizens of the world’s perhaps most stylish city. This theme is all about real people doing real things, about the modern GANT persons and their lives in the big apple. With Collegiate we looked back at GANT’s founding in New Haven in 1949. Ever since then Yale and the Ivy League colleges have always been important, and with the Collegiate theme we honor the past while interpreting prep for the present. These are pieces that built the timeless preppy wardrobe. For men you will also find the Luxury collection.
