Are You 'Merica Enough for This New Capsule Collection?

Heron Preston is one of the new breed of multi-hyphenates that have grown increasingly influential in the world of fashion. Like his pal Virgil Abloh, Preston flits between art, music, street style, and high fashion with relative ease. And also like Abloh, he is a card-carrying member (I like to think they actually carry cards) of Kanye West's creative inner circle. Basically, he's a creative utility player, an artist who can excel at any position. So it should come as no surprise that the big-box brands have finally taken notice.
Preston just unveiled a new capsule collection for Gap's Fall 2016 #youdogap campaign. Fresh off the heals of his successful NYFW show, which featured a collaboration with the New York Department of Sanitation, Preston has traded in camo and work uniforms for all-American leisurewear.
