Cadillac is continuing to be a driving force in men’s fashion.

The automaker and sponsor of New York Men’s Day announced today that it is launching a capsule collection of 15 looks selected and styled by menswear maven Nick Wooster. The pieces will be from the fall/winter 2015 collections of emerging designers, many of whom show at New York Men’s Day, and will be sold at Gilt.com starting September 9, 2015.

Retailing for $59 to $2,000, the items are designed by Cadet, Carlos Campos, David Hart, Ernest Alexander, Gents, J. Lindeberg, Mark McNairy New Amsterdam, PLAC and Timo Weiland. Select pieces by David Hart, Cadet and Ernest Alexander will be Cadillac Capsule Collection exclusives.

“Innovation in menswear is something Cadillac is proud to foster and support,” said Melody Lee, Cadillac’s director of brand strategy and planning, in a statement. “We look forward to bringing the groundbreaking designs of the designers of New York Men’s Day to a greater audience in partnership with Nick Wooster and Gilt.”

“Getting dressed is a form of self-expression, and today, men are more attuned than ever to the possibilities in front of them,” added Wooster. “My approach to curating this collection with Cadillac was to show a spectrum of ideas that can fit into a variety of lifestyles. We’ve worked with a cross section of some of the most interesting emerging designers to create a collection that is, in my opinion, stylish, appropriate and cool.”
