Meet one of the men shaping the future of American fashion. Courtney Colavita
Name: Patrick Robinson, 41, Executive Vice President of Design, Gap
Résumé: Paco Rabanne, Perry Ellis, Giorgio Armani
Plan: "Gap isn't about dressing one person or one point of view," says Robinson, who is updating the brand's staples like khakis, jeans, and V-neck sweaters rather than overhauling them. This fall, that means washed gray jeans, heathered cardigans, and unadorned cropped trenches. Available at Gap stores.
