There's nothing the fashion world loves more than reinvention, and this month, the classic casual standard -- khaki -- is getting a high-end summer kick off.

Gap Design Edition -- now in its third year -- was created to introduce CFDA winners to a wider audience, to reinvent an American classic and to offer luxurious, limited edition designs at wallet-friendly prices.

This year, womenswear designers Alexander Wang (above), Vena Cava's Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai and accessories designer Albertus Swanepoel were presented with the honor and challenge of reinterpreting the khaki, and they delivered. We want every piece!

The collections will be available in US flagship stores and on gap.com starting June 16th. Prices range from $39.50 to $88, so we can have them all! A word of advice: Avoid khaki overkill by not wearing them simultaneously!



Wang's outerwear is at the top of our list, while Vena Cava's dresses (below) are to die for.
