Expect to see a mutual lovefest between Paul Smith and GQ this spring. The designer has written an essay on ambition for the magazine's British biannual GQ Style. In return, Paul Smith stores in New York and elsewhere will devote their windows to the issue's theme, Man Up. They'll also sell special GQ tees and copies of the magazine, which will come in a Paul Smith-designed tote. [WWD]
